Lupe Fiasco's fourth studio album hits the ground running with 89,000 units moved.
Lupe Fiasco's anticipated album, Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1, finally hit shelves last week. The socially and politically conscious rapper entered the Billboard charts at No. 5 this week.
The album, released via Atlantic Records, moved 89,000 units in its opening week, which was close to the projections for the LP. Although it boasted the most sales for a hip-hop album in its week, it still moved less units than Lupe's past releases. Lasers moved 204,000 copies opening week, and The Cool did 143,000 units. However, Food & Liquor 2 did sell more copies than 2006's Food & Liqour, which did 81,000 in its first week.
