DMX’s The Grand Champ moved over 300,000 copies the first week in stores, landing it on the top of Billboard’s Top 200 Albums Chart.
The album is DMX’s fifth consecutive number one album. While the numbers are impressive amid a troubled time for CD sales.
DMX’s And Then There Was X and Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood, both moved almost 700,000 copies according to Billboard, while his last album, The Great Depression moved 440,00 copies.
Sheek Louch’s Walk Witt Me and Bubba Sparxxx’s Deliverance made the top ten, while the Ying Yang Twins missed a top ten debut and clocked in at an impressive number 11 with their debut, Me & My Brother.
