    Kid Ink's sophomore effort hit the Billboard 200 this week, although it didn't perform quite as well as his debut My Own Lane. My Own Lane pushed 50,000 copies out opening week, which was deemed a strong release, especially for an independently-signed rapper's debut. However, Full Speed moved less than 40k opening week. The album itself is exactly what you expect to hear from Ink, with a lot of radio potential, and top tier features. So what's lacking here? Perhaps once one of his many singles takes off it'll translate into a sales boost.

    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.

    This week r'n'b singer and hit-maker extraordinaire, The-Dream, enters the charts with his latest effort, IV Play. The-Dream is an interesting artist to analyze, because while he creates hits on top of hits for tons artists in the game, his own fan-base is much smaller, yet extremely devout to the singer. The-Dream writes (and produces) tracks of all kinds for huge stars like Rihanna, Kelly Rowland, Beyonce etc. It's kind of strange to think that all your favorite female singers get their content from one man.
