    Jay Z Seen Rocking Five Percent Nation Medallion At Barclays Center

    Last week at the Barclays center, Jay-Z was seen rocking large gold pendant that serves as a symbolic representation of the Five Percent Nation affiliation. What is Five Percent Nation and what do they believe? The author of two books on the group, Michael Muhammad Knight explains, “The rationale is that the black man is God and created the universe, and is physically stronger and intellectually stronger and more righteous naturally. Whiteness is weak and wicked and inferior — basically just an errant child who needs to be corrected.”

    Two women are suing Beyoncé after they were trampled by a mob of fans at her concert in Chicago last December. According to the suit, Raquel Castellanos and Gabriella Davidson arrived early United Center in hopes to get as close as possible to the stage in the general admission section. When the gates opened, there was a mad rush to the front of the venue, during which the two women were knocked to the ground and trampled, leaving them unconscious and with bones broken.

    Future debuted a new song at SXSW that bore a striking resemblance to Beyoncé's "Drunk In Love". Due to his brief (somewhat confusing) introduction to the track, as well as the melodic similarities within it, rumors began to circulate that Future had a role in writing the song. In a new interview with Wendy Williams, Fewtch (sort of) cleared things up regarding his contributions to the song, and also spoke about his upcoming wedding to Ciara.

    There are only two new entries within the top 10 of the Billboard 200 this week, and they belong to two rappers: ScHoolboy Q and Kid Cudi. As we said last week, Q was projected to move 150-160k, but fell slightly under that by moving 138,950 copies opening week. This was nevertheless an extremely strong showing from the TDE rapper, which gave him his first #1 debut as well as that of the label's.

    It's almost time for the ScHoolboy Q and Kid Cudi chart invasion, but not just yet. We received the first week sales projection for both rappers respective releases, Oxymoron and Satellite Flight, and both are on track to sell a solid amount of albums. Q is looking like he'll do some damage with 150,000-160,000 copies projected, and thus debut at #1 which definitely isn't a bad look, while Kid Cudi will come close behind with 90,000-95,000 copies.

    As soon as Kid Cudi surprise-released his new album Satellite Flight, people started saying he'd "pulled a Beyoncé", something that was also said the Air Yeezys dropped, so it's only a matter of time before Beyoncé just becomes a synonym for "surprise". Whether or not Cudi did take a note from Bey was a valid question however, and it's one he addressed in his recent interview with Complex.

    Overall album sales are up this week by 20% according to Nielsen, and we may have Valentine's Day purchases to blame for this one. Perhaps lovers were picking up Drake's Nothing Was The Same, and some r'n'b albums for V-Day? Along with Drake seeing a rise in sales, so did Justin Timberlake, R. Kelly, Beyonce and John Legend-- those are all very Valentine's Day-worthy releases.

    Although we saw an increase in overall album sales last week, due to the Grammys and the Super Bowl, this week we're back down again, with a 3% decrease compared to last week. While Bruno Mars isn't featured on the list below, it should be noted he's still benefiting from the Super Bowl half-time show, with two of his albums, Unorthodox Jukebox having an astounding 92% increase, and his debut, Doo-Wops & Hooligans benefiting from a 52% increase.

    It's that time of the year again - Valentine's Day! The romantic holiday is upon us and we thought we'd share some of the love in the hip-hop community. Love and hip-hop doesn't have to be synonymous with ratchet behavior and baby daddy / momma drama, although you may be under a different impression if you've ever watched a full episode of VH1's Love & Hip-Hop.

    The Grammys always have their share of memorable performances, and the 56th annual awards will certainly be no different. We'll be updating with performances as they happen. Among those set to take the stage are Beyonce, Jay Z, Robin Thicke, Pharrell, Daft Punk, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis and many more. So far, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have been dominating the rap-related awards taking home best rap album, best rap song, and best new artist. It's possible he may take home album of the year as well, while Kendrick Lamar remains empty-handed.

    This week the charts remained relatively calm, with no hip-hop new-comers to speak of yet. However, Ty Dolla $ign recently dropped his new Beach House EP, so we'll have to see how well that does sales-wise next week. This past week was Kid Ink's second week on the Billboard 200, and while he wasn't able to maintain a spot within the top 20 of the Billboard 200, he was pretty close, dropping to #21 after a #3 debut. Although Ink is signed to RCA, this is his debut effort and while he's pushing towards the mainstream, he hasn't quite broken down the barrier yet.

    Billboard has released its 2014 "Power 100" list, and perhaps unsurprisingly, Jay Z and Beyonce were given the #1 spot on this list. This comes after the power couple earned the #1 spot of Forbes' Highest-Paid Celebrity Couples list. Obviously money and power are connected.

    This week we welcome a new entry on Charts Don't Lie, Kid Ink. Kid Ink is a prime example of a rapper who took his internet fame way past the internet. The Alumni rapper is now signed to a major label, and was able to successfully release his debut album My Own Lane-- he actually surpassed the sales projections of 40-45k. Ink sold a respectable 50k, which isn't too shabby for an artist who is not quite mainstream yet, although it's only a matter of time until he gets there.

    Beyonce has seen both praise and criticism for her proclaimed feminism, but her latest self-titled project generally saw more of the former. Bey has now taken her feminist views off record, with the decision to pen an essay for journalist Maria Shriver's publication, "The Shriver Report". Yonce's article is titled "Gender Equality is a Myth!", and finds her addressing the overlooked gender issues in North American society.

    There aren't very many changes in this week's Charts Don't Lie compared to last week. The main list of artists has remained the same, as we have yet to receive any new rap or r'n'b debuts on the Billboard 200, although Kid Ink's debut album My Own Lane will begin charting in the near future. Ink's RCA album is projected to move a solid 40-45k, which will land him within the top 3.

    Blue Ivy Carter celebrated her second birthday in spectacular fashion this past Tuesday (1/7). Jay Z and Beyonce decided to rent out Miami’s Jungle Island, which is an amusement park that includes a wildlife park and botanical garden, for their daughter’s once-in-a-lifetime occasion. Park officials are keeping their costs under wraps, but it's gotta be pretty damn pricey to close down the entire park. Look at it this way, the VIP safari tour for just one person costs $240.
