    There aren't very many changes in this week's Charts Don't Lie compared to last week.

Ink's RCA album is projected to move a solid 40-45k, which will land him within the top 3. That's not too...

    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.
