Lil’ Wayne Hits It Big on the Charts

June 16, 2008

Lil’ Wayne’s newest album topped the charts with over 400,000 sold in the first day alone.

Lil’ Wayne has an eye on the charts. The first day he put out his newest album, 423,000 copies were sold, putting him right up at the top in the No. 1 spot. The rapper is also on track to have the largest sales week of the year, reported the BBC.

The record for most sales is 463,000 copies held by Mariah Carey with the release of her E=MC2 album in April. Wayne’s release, Tha Carter 3, is his sixth album currently, and his newest single, “Lollipop,” has been at No. 1 for the past five weeks, according to the BBC.

This single also made it over to the U.K. where he is best known for his cameo with Destiny’s Child in “Soldier.” The figures for his album are based off of nine of America’s biggest music retailers which include Best Buy, Borders and iTunes.

Others that were able to make it to the album chart are Viva La Vida, by Coldplay, N.E.R.D.’s Seeing Sounds, and Flavors of Entanglement, Alanis Morissette’s newest album, reported the BBC.

Ying Yang Twins get Union ‘crunk’

March 11, 2008

Badger Herald – If anyone was wondering where the freshmen were on Thursday night, here’s the answer: Hordes of intoxicated undergrads got down at Memorial Union with the Ying Yang Twins, whose explosive show was sponsored by the Wisconsin Union Directorate’s Music Committee.

Opening acts included local rap duo Fall Guys and DJ Kid Cut Up, who spun overplayed hip-hop hits for an hour-and-a-half while concertgoers began to wonder if the Ying Yang Twins were even going to make an appearance.

But D-Roc and Kaine arrived around 11 p.m., opening the show with their 2000 single “Whistle While You Twurk.” In recent years, the Atlanta-based duo has made a name for itself in the genre of crunk rap, which features angry and excited-sounding lyrics, hoarse chants and repetitive beats.

Next, the Ying Yang Twins performed their single “Get Low” while the pulsating crowd pointed to the window and the wall during the song’s infamous chorus. “Say I Yi Yi” paired grinding beats with a chorus that could have been sung by a 5-year-old; this type of onomatopoeia is common in their lyrics, along with the terms “crunk,” “twurk” and “Get low.” Most songs also revolve around favorite pastimes of smoking, driving around and, of course, women.

“I know it’s a lot of y’all big talkin’,” Kaine declared as the sparse beats of “Wait (The Whisper Song)” filled the hall. He called the song “nasty music” — so nasty, in fact, the duo performed an edited version of the track. In an effort not to disappoint, however, the Twins held their microphones to the audience for the infamous whispered chorus.

Finally, they performed the banging club hit “Drop,” a single from the new album The Ying to The Yang, which will be released this spring. “This is my shit!” Kaine yelled as he started headbanging to a sample of “Whoa Black Betty,” which is featured in their single “Dangerous.”

The show’s energy hit a wall, however, after the Ying Yang Twins finished all of their recognizable music and began to simply pace the stage while their DJ played several radio hits. The low point of the show was — no pun intended — when they played Flo Rida’s “Low,” shouting lyrics sporadically while Kaine disappeared mysteriously for several minutes. At this point, concertgoers began to leave by the dozens — they could easily throw a dance party at home and not get carded.

Whoever said white men can’t dance had a point, and the Ying Yang Twins seemed to draw great pleasure from inviting awkward and inebriated fans onstage and watching them try to dance.

“Before we go, I wanna see some of y’all get crunk,” Kaine said, and the crowd followed. The Ying Yang Twins used the resulting on-stage commotion to make an inconspicuous exit, slipping off the stage and out of the Great Hall before too many fans noticed.

Although the Ying Yang Twins began their show with a promising — though delayed —bang, their energy quickly dissolved, and the second half of their set was disappointing.
