T.I.s album drops at number 2
Rapper T.I. has been in the game for years, but his most recent release may be one of his best. BET reports "Trouble Man: Heavy is the Head," came in at number 2 on the Billboard Top 100 chart in its opening week.
Approximately 170,000 copies of the LP were sold, beating out Bruno Mars's "Unorthodox Jukebox" by 2,000 units. This album did better than T.I.s previous album, "No Mercy," which dropped at number 4 and sold 20,000 copies in its first week back in 2010.
HipHopWired reports T.I. was celebrating the album before he learned the good news. The rapper and his family and friends took over the Compound on December 22 in honor of the new release. Big name celebrities like Ne-Yo, Jermaine Dupri and Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith were all in attendance.
T.I. pulled out all the stops for his eighth studio album. BET reports he brought on Andre 3000, A$AP Rocky, R. Kelly and Meek Mill to help put their spin on a number of songs.
