Early estimates have Jay-Z ganking the top album spot on the charts, moving 179K units on the first day. Kanye and No Cents did 437K and 310K respectively. This will tie Jay-Z with Elvis for the second place spot for #1 albums.

In other Camel news, Jay-Z and his partners Iconix Brand Group, who bought Rocawear for $204 million, have purchased the Artful Dodger clothing line for $15 million cash.

Jay-Z recently talked to Charlie Rose about coming back and working on the American Gangster album.

    Wow, that’s great, and for all the idiots screaming that he should retire, why the hell should he, when he’s breaking records and making accomplishments that NO OTHER rapper has achieved!! Silly rabbits…some of y’all just don’t get it.

    Shout out to “Just Sit and Be Pretty.” It’s always those salty bean eaters that got some bull-ish to spew. Usually, it’s those people who don’t aspire to be the best that they can be.

    I LOVE YOU SHAWN! and of course i copped the album.

  • AND...

    I watched this segment of LPB and it was very informative. I am not a rap fan b/c of all the violence, prfanity, and stupid lyrics but Jay is on something different now. I must say that he admitted to be apart of the problem with hip hop today by the artists he has signed in the past b/c it was all about money but he said he is now more invested in hiring fewer artists with better talent and better messages. I must say I am kinda liking Jay now.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    He spent over 18 million on promotion for Kingdom Come and THAT was garbage. I haven’t heard all of American Gangster yet but so far the only song I don’t like is Blue Magic.

  • DANA

    wow, one OVERRATED artist tops anothr OVERRATED artist! congradulations!

  • coop

    @Oh F@ck That!!!

    You are so funny. You know that he did not spend that kind of money to promote Kingdom Come. I have even asked you to provide proof but you never do.

  • coop

    @IAMLEGEND

    Sorry to break your heart but that 179k was the first day numbers. Why do the haters have to be loud and WRONG?

  • justthetruth

    I.M.O., he isn’t as ugly in the interview as he looks in pictures, he probably doesn’t photograph well. He has a nice smile too.
