This hasn't been a great week in America. Beloved comedian and actor Robin Williams passed away under particularly tragic circumstances at the age of 63. Plus, we saw a blatant violation of the first amendment at the protests in Ferguson, Mo., where unarmed African-American male Mike Brown was slain by cops. Although rappers sometimes don't abide by normal people logic, they're still human beings in America. Some felt and reacted to the circumstances accordingly.

This week we don't have many new entries to speak of, save for Sage The Gemini's Remember Me. Depending on the numbers Smoke DZA's new album Dream.ZONE.Achieve did, we may or may not see it pop up on Charts Don't Lie next week, though. This week remains fairly unexciting, as Pharrell manages to climb up the charts while Rick Ross descends, and Pharrell picks up pace sales-wise too.

Samples Of The Week: March 20
Samples Of The Week: March 20 Mar 20, 2014 at 01:30pm
When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh honey". 
Review: Freddie Gibbs & Madlib's "Piñata"
Review: Freddie Gibbs & Madlib's "Piñata" Mar 19, 2014 at 04:00pm
On paper, stone cold gangster Freddie Gibbs and alt-hop producer Madlib have little in common. But after releasing several highly enjoyable EPs beginning in 2011, it quickly became apparent that the duo were capable of vibing off one another. Four songs from those EPs show up on Piñata, and the rest of its seventeen songs fall in line with their smoked-out, sample-heavy sound, creating an insanely consistent album. Piñata is Madlib's best collaborative album since cult classic Madvillainy, and it might be Gibbs' best work yet.
