Nas can't outsell Jay Z by himself, but with my help there's nothing the little homey can't do.
NaS Lost rose to the top of the Amazon charts in its category pretty much as it was released yesterday and has remained there ever since. Hopefully, it'll remain there permanently, because that'll save me from having to have any ambition in life ever again.
It's also still the number one music book (not just rap music, mind you) in the iTunes store.
The paperback version is in the top 10 in its category at Amazon, behind multiple formats of books by ?uestlove, Jay Z and 50 Cent. So really it's like fifth. They didn't have it in the right category yesterday, when it probably had the best chance of hitting #1. I thought about emailing Jeff Bezos, but they don't have his address listed, so I just called it an evening. I woke this morning, and they had it listed with the rest of the rap books. They must wait until a few people buy it and then try to ascertain their race via the NSA's PRISM program.
The few sites who have written about the book so far:
