Soulja Boy Tell’em debuted on The Billboard 200 sales chart this week, with his third album The DeAndre Way. But the Swag rapper failed to sell as many copies as expected.
Moving close to 13, 400 units in his first week, SB didn’t make a lot of noise on the Nielsen SoundScan report, released today (December 8). Soulja’s last disc, 2008’s iSouljaboytellem sold about 45,500 copies in week one.
Curren$y’s new disc Pilot Talk II also debuted on the chart this week. The set moved about 18,400 copies in its first go-round, beating out the ATLien. Last July the first installment of Spitta’s PT series moved 10,700 units in its first week.
Nicki Minaj's debut album, Pink Friday, moves another 102,395 copies in its second week release bringing the album’s totals to 477,395 at the number 6 spot

Young Jeezy's manager, Demetrius Ellerbee, has denied a report that the rapper was arrested in the Bahamas on Saturday.
"It's not true," Ellerbee told MTV News.
According to Bahamian newspaper The Tribune, Jeezy was on his way to a show in an area of the island called New Providence when he was arrested by local officials. While the reason for his arrest was not specified, the paper says the rapper wasn't held for very long.
"He was here with us a short while. He passed through the station briefly on Saturday," said Superintendent Ashton Greenslade, an officer at the Wulff Road station. "He was booked in here and taken to CDU (Central Detective Unit)."
A Tribune source surmised that the Atlanta MC was simply "in the wrong place at the wrong time."
Elsewhere, Rick Ross recently responded to what he took as a dis from Young Jeezy in The Source magazine, stemming from the pair's beef regarding Ross' "B.M.F. (Blowin' Money Fast)." Following the release of the Bawse's single, Jeezy dropped his own "B.M.F." freestyle and the pair have been on the outs since.
"It's not like I'm in Miami and you in New York," said Ross. "We see each other. That's the only issue I had. It was sideways. So I made a record, 'Summer's Mine,' just to [let him know], if we gonna play that sport, let's put it on the table like men. If it was just a freestyle that the world took the wrong way, leave it alone. That's how I took it."
