Anyway, 50 Cent's "Before I Self Destruct" album dropped from 4th to 21st selling just under sixty thousand more copies plus the Black Eyed Peas gained four spots to 23d. Jay-Z's "Blueprint 3" kept it's 32nd spot with another 34,448 albums sold while Birdman debuted his "Pricele$$" LP in 33rd with close to 34,000 units moved.
