    As November fast approaches, we're all getting excited to hear Eminem's come-back (we hope) on MMLPII on November 5th. However, October 15th was also an important day for hip-hop, with three of the most dope and underrated emcees all dropping records: Boldy James, Dom Kennedy, and Black Milk. Dom Kennedy is sort of making his way out of that underrated category, with Get Home Safely receiving...

    There aren't very many changes in this week's Charts Don't Lie compared to last week. The main list of artists has remained the same, as we have yet to receive any new rap or r'n'b debuts on the Billboard 200, although Kid Ink's debut album My Own Lane will begin charting in the near future. Ink's RCA album is projected to move a solid 40-45k, which will land him within the top 3. That's not too...

    This week we see a new chart-topper arrive, the New York rapper who takes on that southern style, A$AP Rocky. Rocky's debut album, Long.Live.A$AP did surprisingly well. We see albums leak all the time-- usually it's just a week prior to the album's release though. In Rocky's case, we saw it leak a month early. However, Rocky continued doing promo and dropping singles, not worrying about the album...

    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) Randomly, Redman let go his version of some classic Eminem, and he definitely does it justice. It's reminiscent of Em's track...

    Logic was quietly grinding in his hometown of Maryland for some time, releasing tape after tape, before he hit it big and signed a deal with Def Jam. His story is similar to that of many rappers: an absentee father, a mother with a drug addiction, and a high school drop out. However, Logic is not your average rapper. The emcee first stepped to the mixtape game with Young, Broke, And Infamous,...

Jhene Aiko pulled pretty good numbers for her debut EP, leaving us hopeful for what's to come from the West Coast native. Her buzz will only continue to climb leading up to the release of her debut album, Soul(ed) Out, and so dropping the EP was definitely a...

    We have two new-comers to Charts Don't Lie this week, who come from opposite ends of the spectrum- Robin Thicke and Tech N9ne. Both artists had impressive debuts, with Thicke earning a #1 debut for the first time, and Tech N9ne earning his chart peak as well. Independent labels may just be the way of the future, as Mac Miller and Tech (and others) have proved again and again how they can do it...
