Charts Don’t Lie: August 31 Aug 31, 2014 at 09:28am
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).

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).
