According to Nielsen Soundscan, Jeezy’s “The Recession” sold just over 260,000 copies in the United States. Led by the summer anthem “Put On” featuring Kanye West, Jeezy’s album follows his 2006 No.1 album “The Inspiration,” it also beats out New Kids on the Block’s comeback album “The Block” which debuted at No.2.
