Lil Wayne’s ‘Human Being’ Lands at No. 2

Lil Wayne

His new album I Am Not a Human Being may have only been released digitally, but that didn’t stop Lil Wayne from earning a top 5 debut.

The Young Money leader’s eighth studio project landed at No. 2 in its first week on the Billboard 200 albums chart, settling in behind Kenny Chesney with a healthy 110,000 copies sold. This marks the eighth top 10 release that the incarcerated rapper has earned throughout his career. Earlier this year, Weezy’s rock-tinged Rebirth bowed at No. 2 with 176,000. Fans who prefer a physical copy of Human Being can get theirs when it hits stores on October 12.

Weezy’s “Steady Mobbin” collaborator Gucci Mane nabbed his second top 10 offering with The Appeal: Georgia’s Most Wanted, which enters at No. 4 with 60,000 copies. His previous effort, The State vs. Radric Davis, debuted at No. 10 with 90,000. The album has spawned the Swizz Beatz-assisted single “Gucci Time,” which the duo recently performed at the BET Hip Hop Awards.

Other notables include Eminem, whose Recovery moves up a spot to No. 5 with another 59,000 units, while Trey Songz’s Passion, Pain & Pleasure sits tight at No. 7 with an additional 42,000.
