Yung Joc hustles his way to third on the charts

Atlanta rapper Yung Joc debuted on the Billboard 200 this week at the No. 3 position with his sophomore disc for Bad Boy Records.

Hustlenomics, which features appearances from Sean “Diddy” Combs, The Game, Young Dro, Pharrell Williams and Trick Daddy, sold 69,000 copies this week, according to Nielsen’s SoundScan.

Last year’s New Joc City also debuted on the Billboard 200 at No. 3, but comparatively was able to sell 148,000 CDs in its opening week – thanks in part to the success of his monster hit single “It’s Goin’ Down.”

Other notable releases that made appearances on the charts this week include indie rapper Aesop Rock and Akon. The Def Jux emcee debuted at the No. 50 spot with his fourth solo set, None Shall Pass, selling 13,000 CDs. Akon – who, after re-releasing his platinum album Konvicted last week, with bonus material -was able to catapult from No. 64 to No. 23, moving 22,000 units.
