Atmosphere Paints that Billboard Shit Gold
Atmosphere's latest album, When Life Gives You Lemons..., has debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 charts. In its first week, Lemons clocked in at an impressive 36,526 copies sold, behind Mariah Carey, Leona Lewis, Flight of the Conchords, and Ashlee Simpson. Well, at least two out of the top five are cool.
This is the first time Atmosphere has had an album on the Billboard charts, and it's a record high for any release on Rhymesayers Entertainment.
