Rick Ross Deeper Than Rap hit #1 on the Billboard Top 200, and some say the numbers were weak.
“150,000 is not a lot of copies sold on a major label,” fan Eagles36 wrote in. “Fifty did 691,000 his first week. Rick Ross is a joke.”
Meanwhile, Ross advocate DCollins4444 said to naysayers, “Haters, haters, haters. Stand up … it’s a good album. This album would have sold [a million] six years ago in its first week.”
For the record, Deeper Than Rap’s first-week numbers aren’t far off from his first two LPs, both of which went in at #1. Last year’s Trilla pushed 198,000 copies in its first week, while his 2006 effort Port of Miami sold 187,000 out of the gate.
