    We're currently awaiting first week sale numbers for Jeezy's new album, Seen It All, which is supposed to move around 90k-100k. Even though these are just projections at the moment, it's extremely unlikely The Snowman will be able to beat the sales of his last album TM:103 Hustlerz Ambition, which moved 233,000 copies when it dropped three years ago.

    This week we're seeing a lot of the smaller debuts from last week trickle down the charts, as Wiz Khalifa takes over the top spot with his new album Blacc Hollywood. Despite having somewhat mediocre and mixed reviews, the album happened to be Wiz's first #1 LP, if you can believe it. His last release from 2012, O.N.I.F.C., debuted at #2 although it moved much more opening week (148,000 copies, compared to Blacc Hollywood's 90,000).

    Although it's pretty clear at this point that police are not investigating Wiz Khalifa in regards to the fatal shooting that occurred backstage at his "Under The Influence" tour last weekend, the event will have repercussions for the Taylor Gang boss. That became apparent today when Michigan State University announced the cancellation of a Wiz Khalifa concert scheduled to take place on campus on September 13th.

    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".

    We all know the story with Wiz and his albums, it's a tale as old as time. He goes super, extra hard on his mixtapes to shut up the critics who talked bad about his albums, only to make some of the same mistakes on the next album. It's a vicious cycle, that we're only escaping gradually, in baby steps. Rolling Papers was what the label wanted Wiz to be, and he acknowledged and atoned for that to his fans (you can read the letter here).
