As expected, the Clipse album sales contest was a bit tougher than usual. It’s impossible to tell exactly how much the internet leakage of Hell Hath No Fury affected the sales, but it obviously had an effect. In any case, congrats to Markous Roberts and his guess of 78,698 which was closest to the reported 78,000 figure. In other chart news, Incubus took the top spot with 165,000 units moved and President Hov took a major hit with an 80% sales decrease down to 140,000 for Kingdom Come.
