After zero new hip-hop albums appeared in the Top 10 of the Billboard charts last week, rap takes over this week.
Jeezy’s new album, Trap Or Die 3, debuted at No. 1 selling 89,000 copies, only 13,000 which came from streaming, which is pretty unusual but respectable in this day and age.
Meek Mill wasn’t too far behind him, selling 87,000 copies of his
mixtape album DC4, according to Billboard. Granted, there was far less promotion for it, but it’s down from selling nearly 250,000 in the first week of Dreams Worth More Than Money.
Drake’s Views and the Suicide Squad soundtrack both are out of the Top 5, where they seemed to have lived since the got on the charts. It ends Drake’s 26-week run of being one of the top five highest-sold albums in the country.
