He makes for the only real notable debut on the charts, but Tyrese and Meek Mill are still hanging on to their placements within the top ten. Check out the full breakdown below.

    Future's "Dirty Sprite 2": The Drug Count

    Future's DS2 album just dropped, and you probably spent all weekend taking in the rap/R&B hybrid in. If you paid attention, in any capacity, you probably noticed the drug references peppered in just about each and every song. Of course, lean is what gave the album its title, but there is tons of coke, molly, weed, and prescription pills in these tracks. Keep in mind, if the word was repeated multiple times as part of a hook or a refrain, we only counted it once.

    Future has been overwhelming us lately, yet he still remains in-demand. Despite giving us back-to-back releases of three monstrous mixtapes (Beastmode, Monster and 56 Nights), the streets were literally salivating when news broke that he was dropping Dirty Sprite 2.

    Dirty Sprite 2 may be projected to do huge first week sales numbers, but Future got just as much #DS2 love from other rappers as he did from fans, as numerous rappers quoted lyrics from the album on Twitter to let everyone know they were bumping it.

    So we already know that Future got the graphic (lean rain cloud?) for his new album, DS2, off of Shuttershock, and as hilarious as that may be, we didn't even think about the fact that it's probably already been purchased many times and used elsewhere. Today, we got our first look at another application of the psychedelic image-- found randomly on a student's chemistry textbook. Of course, the book doesn't feature Future's face photoshopped in (if you haven't noticed that yet, take a long look at the cover and you'll unlock it like a magic-eye).

    Future's hype seems to be at an all-time high, but while the initial first week sales projections for his new album, DS2, eclipsed those of his previous two albums, the number didn't seem to match the buzz.

    Announcing his third album Dirty Sprite 2 (or rather DS2 for copyright reasons) just about a week in advance of its release date, Future was banking on his rapidly-growing fanbase and mixtape momentum to give him a win on the charts. It was somewhat of a risky strategy, but one that could realistically capitalize on the hype he's built in 2015. Well, if it performs as well as it's projected to, DS2 could be responsible for Young Super Future's biggest opening week ever.

    The album for Future Hendrix's new album Dirty Sprite 2 is goddamn amazing, beautifully rendering the synthesis of sprite and codeine on both a chemical and spiritual level. Turns out the artist didn't have lean in mind when she illustrated it. She hadn't even heard of Future.

    This week, Future's DS2 dominated the conversation, but there was plenty more going on around the hip hopsphere. Meek Mill's DWMTM maintained its top spot on the Hot 100, Drake shared a bonkers "Energy" video, and OG Maco claimed that Future was "ruining lives" with his music. On a more serious note, GLo Gang rapper Capo was tragically shot down in his prime, and police allege that Birdman and Young Thug were plotting to murder Lil Wayne. All this and more on this week's edition of 140 Bars.

    Well here it is. After a week of heavy promotion and high anticipation, Future releases his Dirty Sprite 2 album on iTunes. Laced with 18 records, the follow up to 2011 Dirty Sprite contains only a lone feature from Drizzy Drake on track #3 “Where Ya At,” which we heard yesterday. Meanwhile, production is handled by hitmakers Metro Boomin, Southside, Sonny Digital, and Zaytoven, among many other notable names.
