Subject: That's not impressive. At the time it only took about 2K sales to make it to the bottom ranks of the Top 40. For niche charts like hip-hop, it took significantly less So in reality he could have only sold a thousand copies and made it to #37. ALSO...

Sad the guy died, but a known figure in hip-hop, he wasn't.

In reply to: So some people bought it 's message, "His album "Crazy Noise" got to # 37 on the Billboard R & B chart" on Friday, May 01, 12:53:49pm

Billboard charts were based on sales to record stores, not to consumers. So any store that ordered it, a sale was registered. However, if the record didn't sell--and his most certainly didn't--it got shipped back to the record company distributor.
