A.L.L.A., which is the Harlem rapper’s second studio album, sold 146,000 units in the first week. A.L.L.A. sold slightly more units (7,000) than 2013’s Long.Live.A$AP. A.L.L.A. also marks the sixth hip hop album this year to lead the top five on the Billboard 200 this year, following Wale’s The Album About Nothing, Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly, Big Sean’s Dark Sky Paradise and Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.
Boosie Badazz also made his debut in the Billboard 200, selling 64,000 units for his long-awaited album Touchdown 2 Cause Hell. It’s his first album since being released from prison last March.
