Jadakiss' Last Kiss Didn't Entirely Brick

Although pathetic by all pre-industry collapse standards, the news that Jadakiss somehow managed to sell more than 100,000 copies of The Last Kiss his first week out is weirdly heartening--healthy smattering of crossover records aside, our guess is Jada has not ladies but a perversely loyal, perhaps not entirely tech-savvy cadre of real rap fans to thank. (For what it's worth: Clipse's Hell Hath No Fury, a much better record with even dimmer commercial prospects, sold 78,000 copies its first week out in 2006, in a marginally less impaired music retail climate. Evidently, having been in the LOX still means something.) [XXL]
