    On Charts Don't Lie this week we familiar faces, along with one that may seem completely random: Flo Rida. We'll get to that one in a minute. As for the regulars, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis see their best chart peak this week since they debuted at #2, with a leap from #16 to #4. Once more, it seems like promotion is on the rapper and producer's side, as an appearance on Saturday Night Live...

    Tha Joker has been steadily grinding alongside producer, Big Fruit, for some time now. The  two southerners first linked up in 2006, when Joker joined Big Fruit's independent label. Although the two have since parted ways label-wise, they have remained frequent collaborators. The chemistry between the two is obvious on any Big Fruit record that Tha Joker hops on. Tha Joker has released mixtape...

    This week we await the official numbers for Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience, which is projected to sell huge amounts (750-800k),  and will no doubt take over Charts Don’t Lie for a period of time. Next week will also have Lil Wayne’s I Am Not A Human Being II dropping, which is also sure to make a splash on the charts in the coming week. This week however, we see hardly...

    This week we were extremely impressed by the numbers that Justin Timberlake pulled with his new album, The 20/20 Experience. Within the hip-hop/r’n’b-sphere, we haven’t seen a chart topper sell the amount JT sold in a while. The artist pulled in 980k, which funnily enough takes away a record from Lil Wayne, who happens to also have a new album that released this past week.  Wayne...

    This week we overloaded with music, thanks in most part to Halloween-- rappers love dropping their shit on a holiday of some sort or on some themed tip, and this year was no different.  Among the ton of mixtapes and singles we received, we've picked out four in particular that deserve a second look in this week's Underrated Audio.

    This week nothing major dropped in terms of hip-hop. Nonetheless, overall album sales went up by 42%. To what can we blame this spike in sales? It would be safe to say Black Friday, which is basically the commencement of the holiday season/shopping frenzy. It's interesting to see the effects on the charts, as many of the rap albums we're looking at today were affected positively from this season...

    Clearly there’s some bad blood between Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife, Siovaughn Funches-Wade, as she had filed a lawsuit for a million dollars but has no “voluntarily dismissed” the case.  The lawsuit had claimed that the two signed a contract back in 2006 that certain endorsement money would be placed in a joint account where Funches-Wade could access it, but that Dwyane had voluntarily...

    Like most mother’s, Kobe Bryant’s mom was tired of holding onto all of her kid’s old stuff long after he had moved out.  Pam Bryant decided she wanted to sell some of Kobe’s things at auction and see if she can get some money for them. Problem is, most of this was valuable memorabilia that Kobe didn’t want sold.  The two ended up going to court over the matter and eventually settled...

    On Friday we took a look at Kobe Bryant’s mother auctioning a 2000 NBA Championship ring that Kobe had ordered for his mother, which was a replica of the ring he was given by the team.  At the time the bidding was up over $40,000, but eventually went for over $100,000. Bryant had taken his mother, Pam, to court when she originally planned on auctioning off memorabilia she had of Kobe’s...

    Last week we contemplated the low sales for Ace Hood's Trials & Tribulations album. This week, we see a severe drop for Ace's album, at the same time we get a new entry with similarly low sales, Rich Gang. We all know those Young Money fans go hard for their rappers, however, it appears they didn't come out to purchase Birdman's YMCMB compilation (of sorts), Rich Gang. First off, the album was...
