    On Dizzy Wright's second studio album The Growing Process, the 24-year old rapper makes an attempt at honing in his focus as an artist by establishing a moral constitution for his music to adhere to until further notice.

    We saw two notable debuts on this week's charts, and they tell very different stories. The first comes from underground hero, Tech N9ne, who managed to have his biggest sales week ever, coming in at number 4. Meanwhile, Ciara, who has both a hit and major label backing, only earned a number 17 debut. Generally, we see artists with cult-like fanbases fall off pretty hard after their first couple of weeks, so CiCi may end up selling more in the long run, but Tech does seem to be something of a special case.Check out the full breakdown below.

    Violence isn't an odd topic in hip-hop music by any stretch of the imagination; there probably hasn't been a mainstream rap album to hit stores this year in which an emcee didn't at least threaten to kill someone. Gun violence and homicide are an epidemic in hip-hop. Cannibalism, torture, and crucification, on the other hand, are harder topics to come by.

    Years after the release of his debut album Follow Me Home, TDE's Jay Rock has officially parted ways with Tech N9ne's Strange Music label. Fans speculated that this split might happen when Rock only appeared for a brief verse on Tech's Strangeulation LP earlier this year, a project that gave sizable shine to just about every other member of the label. In addition to Rock, Kutt Calhoun, one of the label's original signees, has decided to part ways with Strange as well.
