    Slow and steady wins the race, or so they say. In an era of immediate consumption and instant gratification, we want something the second it becomes available, if not before. We wait in line overnight so we can be the first in our group of friends to have the newest iPhone, Call of Duty, or retro Jawwdins. Being a first adopter is a pride thing, and some care about it more than others, but nobody...

    Keeping it fresh with his signature, smoked out flow, Curren$y delivers a strong introduction with the title track New Jet City. Backed by a pompous instrumental, Spitta lays it down and lauds about his boss status. From “sittin in the back of his triple black, with picnic tables, twisting up sacks” to making double our life savings, he is clearly on some new boss shit. The triumphant...

    As an actor, Common has definitely been in some major mainstream flicks and get his due recognition for it. As a rapper, Common borders on the underground/conscious scene, although he's not fully immersed in it because he does do double duty acting. Nonetheless, this is often reflected in his album sales-- he's not the kind of artist to do crazy big numbers, although both Be and Finding Forever...

    After Charts Don't Lie took a hiatus last week, we are back again this week just in time to highlight three important debuts on the Billboard 200. YG's My Krazy Life, Kevin Gates' By Any Means and Freddie Gibbs & Madlib's Pinata. It may come as a surprise, but it appears as though Gangsta Gibbs & Madlib had the most underground release of all three-- we say surprise, because Gates'...

    This week we see one new entry below, belonging to October's Very Own's PARTYNEXTDOOR. The r'n'b singer is relatively new, having released his first official mixtape PARTYNEXTDOOR just last summer. Nonetheless, he's already developed quite the loyal following, undoubtedly due (in part) to his affiliation with Drizzy. The Toronto singer has been able to move a solid 15k, almost 16k, since his...

    Last week we saw PARTYNEXTDOOR make a relatively strong debut on the Billboard 200, however he has not maintained his ranking this week, having fallen below Billboard's top 100. We've got one new entry this week, coming from the underground crew signed to Tech N9ne's Strange Music, Ces Cru. They were able to sell just over 6k, making a debut at #40. Apart from that we see Childish Gambino make a...

    This week we're seeing how Honest and The New Classic are holding up after spending two weeks on the Billboard 200. Despite lagging behind in the first week the albums were on shelves, Iggy Azalea has now surpassed Future sales-wise and she sits atop the charts at #5. We'll have to see how these two play out in the long run-- Iggy definitely has more of a mainstream appeal, especially with that...
