II Trill Lands at No. 2

bun-louis.jpg

I just wanted to take a quick minute and congratulate Bun on II Trill‘s first week sales of 98,000 units and #2 spot on the Billboard Top 200. That’s slightly less than Trill sold its first week out, but alot has changed since ’05 and 98K is no small feat in this new age of Rapidshare and Bittorrent. I know it’s gotta be a bittersweet victory without your main man there to celebrate with you, but I can’t think of any MC in the game more deserving of that commercial success. I’m sure anybody whose ever had the pleasure of dealing with the big homey on a personal level will say the same.

    Chris Martin & dude from Fag Out Boy are much better Hip Hop producers than Mannie Fresh, who are you trying to kid

    cats, snakes, chickens, ducks, elderly people and twerkers?

    Mannie’s like the down south RZA. a string of classic crew albums produced entirely by him and hasnt made anything signifigant since said crew dissipated.

    With that said, I co-sign Mannie>Swizz. (Has Swizz produced any classics top to bottom?) Nope.

    Props to Bun-B … much deserved.

    i met bun once at the airport here in Atl. i only said what’s up, but he seemed to be a cool dude…

  8. b-ease Says:

    I’m relieved, I was thinking his first week sales wouldnt top 60 considering the state of things. Just missing 100 is damn good. Damn good.

    mannie fresh….naw dawg. top 25 maybe.

  16. that guy Says:

    eskay, you aint even buy the album. ur aint-best buy. so ur part of the problem.

  17. eskay Says:

    I always thought Mannie Fresh was the worst thing to happen to Hip-Hop during the 90’s, but the Top Back beat singlehandedly changed my mind and made me go back and reconsider. Mannie is also another really cool motherfucker, so I can’t hate that man.

  18. Joe 88 Says:

    mannie fresh….naw dawg. top 25 maybe

    ^I never said he was top 5, that’s crazy, I say between 12 & 25 tho.

    That’s better? (n/h)

    ^Co-sign, he was producing there whole album, (the hot boys, baby, & all of there solo projects) & all the productions on those albums are heat. that alone should give him a pass to be mentioned in best producer convo’s

    Exactly.

    a a a a a alchemist

  38. rex hussla Says:

    I was thinking yesterday that Alchemist has built himself a crazy catalogue…and he’s got a lot of real underground joints that people have slept on. He did a lot of production on 12″ releases in the late nineties that were “backpack” crowd anthems… a lot of that shit never got released on albums but those beats are definitely >

  39. Chilly Says:

    mannies catalog is more commercial and is bigger (none) but alchemist beats are always classic east coast grimyness so imo alchemist>mannie

    i got dirt on you doggie!

    ^There 2 totally different producers, it depends on what you like best, laid back beats, or uptempo, loud bass, claps etc beats.

    I would choose a beat from manny for the single, & dedicate a song to my moms over the alchemist beat. See what i’m saying?

    Yeah Joe…I feel that…

    I’ve got a lot of 12″ in my stash [ll] with Alchemist production…he gave some crazy beats to real underground cats (TWINS, Agallah, High & Mighty, Tragedy, Buc Fifty, etc.)…some might say they went to waste
