As we all know by now, Nas brought forward the release of his new album 'God's Son' in an attempt to halt the rampant bootlegging. The move was expected to have a signficant effect on the official first week sales.

However, despite only having a few days to gather as many sales as possible, Nas still managed to debut at No. 18 on the Billboard 200, and No. 2 on the Hiphop & R&B chart (behind Aaliyah who took the No. 1 slot in the first week of release). The '8 Mile' Soundtrack continues to sell strongly keeping its No. 5 position.

As for the remaining Hiphop albums in the chart, it was all downhill. The mutli-platinum 'Eminem Show' fell 5 places to No. 20, whilst the latest Tupac album 'Better Dayz' tumbled from No. 8 down to 21 after just 3 weeks. Jay Z also hit a wall with his latest album sliding down 6 spots to No. 27 and Ja Rule must be dissapointed with 'The Last Temptation' falling 7 spots to 31 after just 4 weeks in.

Worrying signs for Busta Rhymes as his 'It Ain't Safe No More' heads toward a Top 100 exit after just a few weeks, this week landing at No. 94. Big Snoop Dogg was also hit hard with his 'Paid Tha Cost To Be The Boss' dropping 16 spots to land in at No. 44 on the charts.

Noticable debuts came from Common (Electric Circus at No. 47) and the 504 Boyz (Ballerz at No. 49). The hot new album from GZA (Legend Of The Liquid Sword) only managed to debut at No. 75 on the charts.
