Lil Wayne's album Funeral and Russ's album Shake The Snow Globe both dropped on January 31.
Funeral ended up being Wayne's worst opening week in years, opening up an upset opportunity for Russ.
However, Russ's album only did 68K SPS vs 138K for Wayne.
There is one metric that Shake The Snow Globe did best Funeral and every other album of the week: The ever-important traditional album sales.
Russ stunted that win on social.
Russ inflated his album sales with aggressive merch packages, but so does everyone these days.
Now if only Russ could get folks to stream his music too.
