Eminem’s Recovery album moved a record-breaking 741,000 units according to Billboard, securing his 6th straight #1 album. Give it up for the Artist of the Decade…
“Recovery’s” debut week sales surpasses the first week of Eminem’s last set, “Relapse,” which began at No. 1 in 2009 with 608,000. It also beats the opening of 2005’s “Curtain Call: The Hits” which entered at No. 1 with 441,000 in 2005.
Eminem’s new album also wows digitally, as downloads made up 255,000 of its first week. That’s the second-biggest digital week for an album in history. Only Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends” notched a larger frame, when it debuted with 288,000 downloads in the summer of 2008.

I recently had a chance to hang with 40 Cal a bit in his hood. I have to say that he’s one of the most easy-going artists that I have ever met. Check out 40 Cal’s latest video to hit the net. It’s a wrap… Trigger Happy 3: Triggernometry coming soon!
Bonus: This clip was done by a good friend of mine and I decided to share it with you today because I felt those of you who don’t know 40 should get to know him.
