    This week we see Tyga make an entry onto the charts, while Tyler, the Creator, whose album dropped last week, fell quite a bit from his impressive #3 debut. Tyga's Hotel California is definitely a venture into the more typical sound that has defined Tyler's career, with plenty of DJ Mustard-esque beats and the accompanying flow. However, maybe this signature sound isn't the signature fans are looking for after all. The album debuted at #7, which is not as good as his last LP, Careless World.

    Back in 2009, a documentary on Lil Wayne called "The Carter" was released. There was much controversy around the doc, as it mainly chronicled the serious struggle with Codeine addiction Wayne was facing at the time. The rappper was not impressed with his portrayal in the film, and did all he could to quiet its release. The rapper also attempted to sue producer Quincy Jones III over his use of Weezy's music in the film.

    This week we see a new entry in Chart's Dont Lie, with Tyler, the Creator's WOLF having dropped on April 2nd. The rapper is definitely expanding his fanbase, with this album impressively debuting at #3 on the Billboard 200. Tyler has been known for extreme and controversial lyrics, which may have made him less accessible to the general public in the past. Now it seems like the public is getting desensitized to the rambunctious rapper, or perhaps it's that the OF member is becoming more radio-friendly and mainstream-- what do you think?

On the other end of the spectrum, we saw Weezy F's album, I Am Not A Human Being II, sell a strong 217k, but it did not really live up to his past LP sales.
