    The Grammys had a positive effect in terms of album sales, as those nominated and those who won both received a boost in the past seven days. Despite Kendrick Lamar's good kid, m.A.A.d city not taking home a Grammy, the rapper still saw a spike in his sales and an almost twenty-spot jump up the charts. Of course, four-time Grammy winners Macklemore & Ryan Lewis also benefited this past week,...

    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. Now we see how good advertising and promo can really effect sales--yes, Rihanna was a superstar in her own right prior to the album drop, but she...

    Soon Jay-Z is going to be on the charts, undoubtedly dominating the top spot, which belonged to J. Cole this week.

    This week was obviously a memorable one for hip-hop, with Big Sean's "Control" dropping and a Kendrick Lamar frenzy ensuing.

We will have to wait and see how long this lasts, but in the meantime it's just making...
