Lloyd Banks continues to follow in the footsteps of his mentor, 50 Cent. For the second week in a row, the G-Unit rappers debut is the number one album on the Billboard 200 charts.
The Hunger For More, sold 164,000 copies this past week to edge out Ushers Confessions, (131,000) which lands at the number two slot for the fifth consecutive week.
Although his album sales arent breaking records like 50 Cents debut, Get Rich Or Die Tryin, Banks said hes satisfied with being able to achieve success on his own.
This is crazy, he told AllHipHop.com. Its really doing big, incredible numbers. Everyday is just something else that just makes me feel like Im growing. Thats the biggest thing; its just hitting me that I could do it by myself.
The week before, Banks sold an impressive 434,000 copies.
Lil Wayne, Jadakiss, and the Beastie Boys round out the rest of the hip-hop entries inside the top ten. The acts are at number four, five, and six, respectively.
