Lil Wayne will have a number one album to celebrate when he’s released from jail next month. Weezy’s latest effort, “I Am Not A Human Being,” jumps from number 16 to number one on this week’s Billboard 200 chart after selling 125-thousand copies. The record arrived in stores last week, but was released digitally on September 27th, which was Lil Wayne’s 28th birthday. “I Am Not A Human Being” debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 earlier this month after moving 110-thousand downloads in its first week. Lil Wayne is currently finishing up a one-year sentence at Rikers Island for weapons charges. He was recently placed in isolation for being in possession of a pair of headphones and an MP3 charger back in May.
Following Lil Wayne on this week’s Billboard 200 is country star Darius Rucker. The singer’s sophomore effort, “Charleston, SC 1966,” debuts at number two with first week sales of 101-thousand. Nickelodeon TV stars Big Time Rush open at number three, as their album “B.T.R.” moves 67-thousand units. The Band Perry’s self-titled album sits at number four with 53-thousand albums, while Eminem’s “Recovery” completes the top five with another 50-thousand copies sold.
