Rap producer Swizz Beatz and NBA star Baron Davis have reacted to Nas‘ Life Is Good first-week sales numbers in light of its chart-topping success this week.
Nas’ “Summer on Smash” collaborator Swizz Beatz boasted about the LP’s impressive sales chart debut.
“Blessings to my brother @nas for that #1 spot on the charts!!! Summer on smash http://instagr.am/p/NeSNs3SDGW/,” Swizzy tweeted July 25th. (Swizz Beatz’s Twitter)
Former NBA All-Star point guard Baron Davis shared a similar sentiment.
“Congrats to the Homie @Nas for #1 album. #LifeIsGood Sick! Sick! Sick!” (Baron Davis’ Twitter)
This week, fellow New York rapper Fabolous co-signed Nasty Nas’ newest solo effort.
“I think it’s actually a breath of fresh air for hip-hop,” Fab said. “It’s a different direction than a lot of the hip-hop that’s been coming out more recent. It’s so fresh. It’s so good to hear fresh music once in a while. You know, nothing wrong with the sound that’s in hip-hop right now, except for that it’s over-saturated you know, but I think Nas gives a different approach. I think that’s dope. “It’s just about making great hip-hop overall and I think Nas’ album adds to that,” ‘Loso added. (XXL Mag)
The follow-up to 2008’s Untitled LP demolished its competition atop the sales chart.
Leading the pack this week is Nas’ Life Is Good album which landed at No. 1. According to Nielsen SoundScan, the LP has shelled out 149,200 units after seven days in stores. (SOHH Sales Wrap)
