According to UGHH.

Independent hip-hop seems to be the only genre pushing units these days, well at least in the case of Immortal Technique. The Harlem MC and underground hip-hop giant had over 7,300 copies Soundscan certified in the album’s first week, landing The 3rd World a number 9 spot on the Billboard Rap chart. His beat out his main competitor, RZA, who released Digi Snacks, in the same week. Immortal Technique also landed himself at the number 10 spot on the Top Independent Current Albums list, and the number 100 spot on the Top 200 Current Albums. If sales at are any indication, Tech’s sales may pull off a “reverse Weezy” and actually keep sales momentum up through week 2.. Not bad for a “mixtape”.
