    Charts Don't Lie: December 8
    Dec 8, 2013 at 09:15 AM
    This week nothing major dropped in terms of hip-hop. Nonetheless, overall album sales went up by 42%. To what can we blame this spike in sales? It would be safe to say Black Friday, which is basically the commencement of the holiday season/shopping frenzy. It's interesting to see the effects on the charts, as many of the rap albums we're looking at today were affected positively from this season of giving, and thus we're seeing a lot of sales increase by large percentages-- Drake's Nothing Was The Same, for example, spiked by 349% in sales.

    At the last minute Drake has pulled out of the Grammys Nominations concert which is going down tonight in Los Angeles. Apparently the reason is because of scheduling conflicts. Drizzy is on his "Would You Like A Tour?" and so he's putting his tour with Miguel and Future before the Grammys Nominations Concert. According to TMZ  a rep for the rapper has said,

    Drake unveiled a special "OVO" Air Jordan 10 Stingray Pack along with an OVO Air Jordan 12 Stingray Pack, via his instagram account.The all white 10 features a glistening, icy outsole with the OVO logo and jumpman decked out in gold. From the pics, the kicks look like an off white, but they're comparable to a 25th anniversary AJ10 with an icy sole. The all black ones feature that dope tumbled leather upper, but from the pics we don't see any OVO branding.

    Eminem found his way back to #1 on the Billboard 200, after spending a week at #2. The rapper sold the same amount that some rappers do opening week (if not more) and he's in his third week on shelves with MMLP2. Em's standard for success has undoubtedly been raised higher than the average rapper, so if we were to compare those sales to that of Yo Gotti's opening week for I Am, you may not seem too impressed. But nonetheless, Yo Gotti did well for himself, selling more than any of his past releases, with 47,469 copies, and debuting at #7.

    YG's upcoming debut album, My Krazy Life (formerly I'm From Bompton), has been delayed until 2014, meaning you might not get to hear that Drake-featured banger off the LP for awhile. Although, let's hope sooner rather than later.

    The 90s are often referred to as rap's golden era, and while rappers of all types will continue to pay tribute to the decade, Drake definitely takes it to the next level. Drizzy's love affair with the 90s can be traced to all facets of his artistic output, from his music, to his videos, to his "interesting" fashion choices.  So without further ado, take a look through our list of Drake's most blatantly 90s moments-- best enjoyed whilst wearing a sweater

    We're still waiting on the full track of that Hit-Boy-produced "Trophies" which sounds like a huge banger, not to mention the "Wu-Tang Forever" remix, and that's not all Drake has in store for us this winter.

    This week we have two new-comers on Charts Don't Lie, the first being buzzing singer Jhene Aiko and the latter, veteran in the game, Bun B. Jhene Aiko pulled pretty good numbers for her debut EP, leaving us hopeful for what's to come from the West Coast native. Her buzz will only continue to climb leading up to the release of her debut album, Soul(ed) Out, and so dropping the EP was definitely a good look for the singer. The EP was projected to move 25-30k, but surpassed 30k with 33,000 units opening week.

    Repetition remains a reality in the rap game, and specific bars tend to get overlooked. This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions. Keep in mind, these are the most noteworthy lyrics of the week, not necessarily the best. Also, it's hard to get everything right - if you notice any errors, don't hesitate to let us know in the comments section. Lines we're not sure about will be bolded.

    Eminem week officially hit us with full force. We've seen legendary rappers like Jay Z and Kanye West both drop albums this past year, but none compared to the chart domination of Slim Shady. As we mentioned last week, a few of Em's old albums had popped back up on the Billboard 200, presumably due to anticipation for new one, MMLP2.

    Champagne Papi has some undeniable Instagram skills, and it's pretty safe to say, they're genetic.

    Things may be heating up again between Drake and Rihanna. The two have had a rumored relationship in the past, which apparently was part of the reason Chris Brown and Drake were beefing. However, now that Chris and Rihanna are over (once again), Drizzy may be edging his way in.

    Well, it looks like DJ Khaled will in fact not be suffering from success with his latest album. His second week on the charts finds him plummeting more than 20 spots, and moving less than 10,000 units. However if there is one rapper we could say has suffered from success, it is most definitely Eminem.

    Nelly is sometimes overlooked as an early adopter of melodic rapping. The St. Louis rapper rarely spit a verse that didn't have a tune to it in his heyday, and later went even further into a singing direction with country crossover songs and the like. Drake, who also has a tendency to sing as much as he raps, is criticized by purists for not sticking entirely to hip hop. In a recent interview with VladTV, Nelly came to the defense of Drake's direction.

    For those unfamiliar, Drake's father, Dennis Graham, is a musician who drummed for Jerry Lee Lewis in his youth. A TMZ cameraman recently caught up with Drizzy Sr. on the street for a brief interview, and asked if he'd recorded any new music with his son, to which he responded: "I have! We just did a song together."
