Female rapper Eve's Ruff Ryders' First Lady will debut at
#1 on this week's Billboard 200 albums chart, making her the second
woman to reach the top with a hip-hop disc this year. The album by 20-year-old
Eve, featuring cameos by DMX and the Lox, sold 213,394
copies for the week ending Sunday (Sept. 19), according to SoundScan
figures released Wednesday. Foxy Brown's Chyna Doll spent
one week at #1 in February. Last week's #1 album, the Dixie Chicks'
Fly, will fall to #4. Controversial rapper Ol' Dirty Bastard's
N***a Please will debut at #10, and the Beatles' Yellow
Submarine Songtrack, featuring remixed songs from the Fab Four's
"Yellow Submarine" movie, will hit the chart at #15.
