THE CHART

GOTTI HAVE IT

Nobody was able to say “Whoa, Nelly” to hip-hop’s reigning rapper, who sold 447,000 copies of his sophomore effort its second week out. You’d think if anyone could intimidate the king of Nellyville, it might be a guy named Gotti. But if the Murder Inc. compilation Irv Gotti Presents The Inc (featuring hitmakers Ja Rule and Ashanti) couldn’t take over the hood, its 193,000 in sales and No. 3 bow would’ve made any godfather proud. Debuting in fourth was yet another greatest hits set from Aerosmith, who roped 137,000 fans into walking their way. Judging from Papa Roach’s fall to No. 13 in their third week, they may not have as much luck with their hits set three decades hence.
