Jadakiss sold 130,000 copies in his first week on the billboard charts with his latest album The Last Kiss. Illest Lyrics would like to congratulate Jadakiss for putting up these big numbers in his first week.
Jadakiss’ new album, The Last Kiss, debuted in at number 3 on Billboard Top 200, an impressive outing for the Lox rapper. The Yonkers-bred rapper moved close to 135,000 records when the Nielsen SoundScan numbers were announced today.
Jadakiss has been a staple in Hip-Hop music for over 10 years, but hasn’t seen the crossover commercial success that some of his peers have experienced.
The rapper said he expected to sell well based on his work, but would continue to press forward to keep the momentum going.
“Everybody wants to sell a million records but that’s just the least of it. You’ve gotta get sponsors,” he said. “Not to mention [that,] I’m going to stay on this tour bus until the wheels fall off. I keep doing shows and arenas and then I’m hopping on a tour. You have to stay on the road and do other things. The sales of the actual physical album are down, you cannot just play on that like it’s the only card in your hand. You have to have to some other Trump card to fall back on.”
