DMX’s ‘Exodus’ Debuts In The Top 10 On The Billboard Top 200 Chart

By on June 6, 2021
DMX once had a long history of ruling the Billboard 200 chart.
As streams of his music went up 1,000 percent following his death on April 9, many believed it would translate to a renewed desire for his Exodus album. Instead, Billboard reports the Ruff Ryders legend’s eighth studio effort bowed at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling roughly 32,000 total album-equivalent units in its first week. The album, backed by features from NasJAY-Z, Bono of U2, Alicia Keys and more, represents X’s seventh Top 10 debut. His first five albums, beginning with 1998’s It’s Dark And Hell Is Hot and ending with 2003’s Grand Champ all debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, making him the first rapper to achieve such a feat.
Exodus, however, pulled in more than 22 million on-demand streams of the album’s tracks.
