According to HDD, Kid Ink's debut album is projected to move anywhere from 40-45K copies in its first week. If that stands, and it should, it will be good enough to land Ink a top 3 spot on Billboard 200.

    Recently we were able to chop it up with Kid Ink, who dropped off a huge banger of a single today, "Show Me" with Chris Brown. The single will no doubt put him on radios across the country, which will drum up anticipation for the release of his debut album on his RCA label.

    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.

    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.

    Samples Of The Week: March 13

    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."  This week, see who Kid Ink, Jay Z, A$AP Rocky and Kendrick Lamar chose to sample in their recent releases, all of which you can find on HNHH.
