'ATLiens' Landing

Pearl Jam's "No Code" rules the charts for the second consecutive week, but OutKast's "ATLiens" is holding its own. The sophomore effort from the Atlanta-based rap duo of Dre and Big Boi, former classmates at the city's Tri-City High School, has sold nearly 350,000 copies during its first two weeks in stores. The follow-up to the group's 1994 release, "Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik," ranks No. 3 on both the national album sales chart and The Times Southern California album chart.
