    Prince has a crazy number of albums under his belt, and a loyal following at that. After taking a four-year break, he returned this year with not one, but two new albums. He put them out at the same time, and managed to move units on each, with each debuting within Billboard 200's top 10. While Prince's popularity may not be as high as it once was, there's still a fanbase there. It would be...

    Although Nipsey Hussle has yet to release a debut album, the West Coast native keeps his fans locked with a steady flow of strong mixtapes. His Marathon series of mixtapes have seen Nipsey grow as an artist and evolve into someone unique in a rap game that is over-saturated with drug-talking and gang-affiliated rappers. The Marathon is continuing with the upcoming third mixtape, TM3: Victory...

    This past week the Drake frenzy surrounding Nothing Was The Same came to a peak when the actual first week sales were released. The rapper's album had the best opening week of this year second to Justin Timberlake's come back effort-- he even topped Jay Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail first week sales. Nonetheless, his reach hasn't quite made the 1 million mark yet, although, if he continues on this...

    Heat In These Streets will give you the low-down on choice rappers putting on for a specific city and advancing the sound of hip-hop at the same time. For the first edition, we profile rappers making noise for Atlanta, a current hot-bed for auto-tuned, unique (sometimes weird), and creative rappers. Let us know if there is a city you'd like to see up next. Outkast showed us in 1994 that ATLiens...

    Underrated Audio aims to provide you with some dope looks from the last seven days, that flew under most peoples' radars.

This week we've highlighted four different records, from four different slept-on MCs. One is Canadian, while the rest...

    This week we find Rick Ross atop on the Billboard 200 with his sixth studio album proving he's still got it. Mastermind managed to sell more than the projected amount, although he didn't quite reach 180k, he moved 179,215 copies. This is still a large enough amount for Rozay to lock down the second-highest debut week total sales for anyone in 2014 thus far. Mastermind is Ross' second straight...

    This week we only have one new entry so to speak of, and it's r'n'b/pop singer Jennifer Hudson with her newly-released JHUD. The album didn't do very much damage on the charts, but it still enters within the Billboard's top 10. Chris Brown, though, is still moving more than JHUD with his album X's second week on shelves. The album saw a four-spot this week, bringing total sales closer to the...

    Lecrae is on the way to becoming a household name, which is a feat for a rapper, let alone a Christian rapper. The rapper made an impressive debut this past week, with Anomaly topping the Billboard 200 and selling just under 100k, with 88,000. While the sales projections indicated it'd be a close race between Jhene Aiko and Lecrae, Lecrae came out the clear winner. Jhene made a solid debut...

    Last week we saw r'n'b/pop take over the Billboard 200, and this week we finally see the return of rap to some of the top spots within the Billboard 200. Impressively, G-Eazy's third studio album comes in highest this week nabbing the #3 spot. Obviously his grind is starting to pay off, as the independent artist sold 46,000 units opening week, basically matching the numbers Fif's Animal Ambition...

    This week on the charts proves to be rather uneventful, as there are no new entries to speak of, although G-Eazy was able to re-enter with These Things Happen. Cadillactica, on the other hand, experienced a steep drop from its top 5 debut. Nonetheless, we're anticipating quite a few new albums that will enter the Billboard 200 in the coming weeks, Eminem's Shady XV will most likely top them all...

    Jay Z stays breaking records, literally. The rap superstar is not only seeing plenty of success with his single off Magna Carta Holy Grail, but he is also making Billboard history with the album. This week a few records were made by Hov, including the title of the most #1s in Billboard history-- and the rest you can read about below. So Hov really reps what he preaches, he really is all about the...

    This week we're finding several new entries in the Billboard 200, although nothing took over the #1 spot. Keyshia Cole actually comes out on top this week, debuting at #9, moving 25,000 copies opening week. Her album dropped around the same time she got in the news for assaulting a Cash Money employee, which leads us to ask, publicity stunt or nah?. Tinashe competed with Keyshia, although she...
