Charts Don't Lie: February 17th
    All eyes were on the world of music as it was the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, which many artists used as a platform to push new material and make announcements of upcoming projects.   As far as the world of hip hop and R&B went, there were no real notable new releases.  The biggest new project to drop was Joe Budden’s, who, following the

    Charts Don’t Lie… how easily you’re hated. Understandably so considering math can be agitating. That said this ongoing chart is an aggregate of the best record keeping the industry has to offer. From Nielsen Soundscan to Billboard and beyond, these calculations are here to provide important information. And this week is no different. For starters, as projected, 2

    Just as we mentioned last week, it seems we now have some chart-toppers that are here to stay, at least for the time being. We've seen the first four artists below consistently on Charts Don't Lie since their respective albums dropped. All are steadily selling, and if they do decrease in sales, it isn't by a vast amount.

    This past week we saw an influx of themed content, surrounding Valentine's Day and the NBA All-Star Weekend. Rappers just love dropping material simultaneously, thus the site was busy with mixtapes and songs centered around either subject, resulting in some music getting pushed aside. Here are five tracks that may have been neglected in the V-Day and All-Star frenzy that occupied last week.
    Charts Don't Lie: November 25th
    Another week, another great showing from R&B artists on the sales charts.  Drake’s boy and fellow Toronto artist The Weeknd managed to nab the top spot here this week, and he did it all with only dropping three original tracks.  Look for Nicki Minaj to follow suit when her Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded - The Re Up drops,

    This week on Charts Don't Lie some of the less consistent rappers have fallen off, while others prove they're on the charts for the long-term. We already knew Justin Timberlake would be here awhile, after he went platinum in very little time following his album's debut.

    There was not too much I was really fucking with last week that hasn't already received enough attention, so I just found three cuts for this week. I don't really have much to say either. Rockie Fresh and Casey Veggies bring something you can chill too, Rich Hil and The Weeknd have something you can get high too, and Mike Posner..I just threw that one on there for kicks.
    Baron Davis Claims He Was Abducted By Aliens Or Illuminati
    Baron Davis was one of the most talented players in throughout the first decade of the 2000s, and as versatile as he was as a guard he has dabbled in various artistic fields such as movies, music, and fashion, so it’s safe to say he is an open-minded person. While on a podcast for comedians Neal Brennan (co-creator of Chappelle Show) and Moshe Kasher, the West Coast point guard told a story how

    Artists who performed at the Grammys or (better yet?) won an award, gained more than just the honor—they gained new fans, perhaps reached a wider audience than usual and thus increased sales of their music. Over the past week, overall album sales

    HNHH continues to tackle the issue of sales in the hip-hop world. This week we had two new-comers top the charts, as well as an old head make an appearance. While Macklemore & Ryan Lewis perform the best this week, it's becoming more and more obvious that major labels may slowly be heading the way of the tall T, as independent labels manage to do it just as big. Not

    This week we saw pop star Rihanna, who also has one foot in the urban-sphere, rise to the top of the charts with her album Unapologetic. The LP was extremely pushed in all media markets, and her #RihannaPlane launched it into the internet stratosphere.

    Check out some music you may have overlooked this past week.         Rockie Fresh- Want My Blood Feat. The Kickdrums & DZ Deathrays This doesn't sound like your typical rap song, Rockie flows over a synth-based beat. Redman- Just Don't Give A Fuck (Remix)
    Charts Don't Lie: December 16th
    This week we see Wiz Khalifa’s O.N.I.F.C. debut at #2, just as his last album, Rolling Papers did. However, the numbers don’t exactly add up-- O.N.I.F.C. sold less than Rolling Papers. While Rolling Papers may have been considered a commercial success, according to die-hard TGOD fans, it was far cry from what they knew and loved about Wiz. O.N.I.F.C.

    You know what it is. My favourite cuts from the past week, there's probably one or two you overlooked so now's your time to look them over. Some solid summer jams.  Jeremih- Val Venis (Remix) I've really been digging Jeremih's shit lately (see: this). He's doing a little bit of rap-singing on this and I like it. The beat is dope, laced with some hi-pitched chiming
    Kobe's Mom Auctioning 2000 Championship Ring Gifted To Her
    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 t

    We're getting quite a bit of G.O.O.D. music this week, with Pusha T and CyHi keeping content coming, and by Sunday we'll have new Curren$y-- so that sounds like a pretty nice week as far as mixtapes goes. Here are few singles that also add some niceness to the week.

    The first week of September is upon us, but the new music isn't slowing down just 'cause summer is. We had a ton of mixtapes drop this past week, and still more to come. Nonetheless, not all new music is good music!! But here is some shit that is actually new AND good. Crazy shiet. Blu- Rap Dope I don't listen to Blu very often, and I keep telling myself I'm going to download
    Charts Don't Lie: September 9th
    The debate as to whether charts do, or don't lie, rages on. On one hand, there are the numbers themselves. As to what they mean is a subjective matter. That said there is the argument that the numbers are incorrect. Weighted sales are one such issue. Particularly problematic in the late 90’s, weighted sales were a questionable algorithm included in

    Last week was pretty reasonable on the music-front, this week is about to get mad busy though, there's a ton of albums and mixtapes dropping. I haven't downloaded a complete new mixtape for a minute though, except for Clams Casino's Instrumental Tape 2 (any song of which I could have posted here...but instead I'll just tell you to go check it out entirely).
    Charts Don't Lie: October 7th
    It’s true that rapper’s like Chingy and the Ying Yang Twins have platinum selling albums. While others such as J. Cole and Big Sean do not. The reason rests not in the quality of their product, but rather when they were released. Despite the arrival of online file sharing, the music industry didn’t fall into disarray instantly. In fact, as far as hip hop is
