Run The Jewels is opening this week’s Billboard 200 at No. 10, with RTJ4 accumulating a total of 38,000 equivalent album units with 30,000 in album sales. This marks the first top 10 effort of Killer Mike and El-P, moving past Run the Jewels 3‘s No. 13 position in 2017. Released two days ahead of schedule, the album was available to download for free on the duo’s website as they urged fans to donate to the Mass Defense Program. The numbers for the free downloads were not reported to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
