This week all eyes are Kanye West, J. Cole and Mac Miller. But mainly Kanye West. The three rappers are releasing their respective projects two days from now (Tuesday, June 18th) and we will be watching the sales and the charts to see where each artist lands. While it's been generally assumed that Yeezy will lord over the other releases, there have been some people who say Cole's Born Sinner will...
This week on Charts Don't Lie we have one new entry, and that's Wale with The Gifted. Wale is an interesting rapper to consider, because there's no denying people love to hate on him. We saw this with the resurgence of old tweets from rappers-- one thing they seemed to all have in common was their strong dislike from Mr. Folarin. And it's not even just those tweets from back in the day, even now,...
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...
The best Summer League player in the world, Andre Drummond, went to a trampoline play area and worked on his Slam Ball skills of dunking while using a trampoline. He posted several vids, including one of him imitating a classic Tracy McGrady two hand reverse – popularized in the 2000 Dunk Contest. In Orlando Summer League, Dre dominated the Miami Heat and threw down some vicious dunks,...
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...

This week everyone's favorite dope boy Pusha T finally made his Charts debut, with My Name Is My Name. The album, which has been praised highly by most, managed a #4 debut, selling on the lower-end of the projected amount, with 75k. While it's solid numbers for a rapper who's been in the underground for most of his career, what does it say about those supporting 'real rap'? That there aren't that...
Today is Tuesday but it feels like a
Monday...and since UA is usually posted on a Monday, we'll pretend
today is Monday and tomorrow is still Wednesday 'cause fuck a
Clams Casino- Always Have A Choice
One of my favorite producers at the
moment, Clams Casino, takes to Twitter every now and then to let go
random instrumentals he's done and it's always appreciated. Clams...
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.

I don't listen
to Blu very often, and I keep telling myself I'm going to download
more of his...
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
Soundscan’s overall equation. It...
UA has compiled four different
tracks this week, each with a unique feel and solid production,
setting them apart from the daily list of songs. Term & Lil Fame
vibe out over Alchemist production, Curt@!n$ returns to the music scene with
help from ScHoolboy Q, Gangsta Gibbs chops up the hard, and Jon
Connor does what he does best. Check them all out below.

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...
