Last week we reported that ‘Heroes For Sale’ sold over 27,000 copies and shattered the record for the biggest first week debut album in Christian Hip Hop History. The Billboard charts are in and New York native Andy Mineo has just debuted #11 on the Billboard 200, #4 Rap and #1 Christian/Gospel for his highly anticipated debut album ‘Heroes For Sale’. The project sold more than Lecrae’s ‘Rehab’ (25,864) and had the second best first week for a Christian Hip Hop album in general right after Lecrae’s ‘Gravity’.

Also, last week the lower case emcee Shai Linne’s newest album ‘Lyrical Theology Part 1: Theology' landed at #12 on the Billboard Top Rap Albums. Lecrae recently got some recognition from Billboard; his project ‘Gravity’ was nominated for a 2013 Billboard Music Award for Top Christian Album.

Congratulations to Andy Mineo for charting so well for a debut retail album.

All Christ Everything (A.C.E.) is inspired by Colossians 1:16-18: "For in him all things were created through him and for him and in him all things hold together." A.C.E. is a band of outsiders that elevates Jesus in a world that promotes conformity.

Andy Mineo's debut album 'Heroes For Sale' debuted #3 on iTunes Top Overall Albums and #2 iTunes Top Hip Hop/Rap Albums. The projection numbers are in, an estimated 30,000 to 35,000 albums have sold in the first week! He will definitely debut in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 chart. This would place 'Heroes For Sale' as the 2nd best selling album for the first week in Christian Hip Hop history, I would even go as far as saying the best first week debut album for a Christian rapper ever!
