Please take a moment to appreciate the fact that Hip-hop is annihilating the charts this week!

Hits Daily Double reports that Kanye West and Nicki Minaj will lead the Billboard’s 200 top albums charts. It is predicted that Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy will be certified Gold in its first week! Yeezy is forecasted to have sold over 518,00 albums during the competitive Thanksgiving week. Kanye is certainly ending 2010 nicely; his fan base is bigger than ever, even despite his recent controversies. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is the soundtrack of his 30 minute movie Runaway, and that was a complete success! It received rave reviews, mega media attention and millions of views online, not to mention that the short film broadcasted simultaneously on multiple networks like MTV and BET.  He has created a new technique to market a whole album, and that should definitely raise the bar!

Harajuku Barbiez made it happen for Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday, and Hits Daily Double said she rocks a close second selling 318,000 albums!!  Very impressive! She’s pretty new to the game,  and be sure she will gain new fans, and sell thousands of albums over the next several months.  Nicki just came out with a very up-close and personal MTV documentary called “My Time Now”. Its receiving mixed reviews, but she definitely isn’t going unnoticed.  She is one of many  artists that are airing MTV Documentary’s right before an album drop in effort to improve sales …  So let me get this straight…so who’s the rookie? Ha!  RAWR!! RAWR !! Like a DUNGEON DRAGON :)  .
