Both The Weeknd and 2 Chainz delivered new albums yesterday, September 10th, and today we have the projections for either project.
This is 2 Chainz sophomore effort, following a very well-received debut, Based On A T.R.U. Story. Will Tity Boi's second installment live up to the first? By the looks of things, sales are not. The Hair Weave Killa is on course to sell only 55,000 - 65,000 --...

Wayne played in the flag football...
Last week we saw several independent rappers make their debut on the charts (sort of-- some of them didn't sell enough to actually chart, yet), but this week we return to the big guns, like Drake and DJ Khaled. Khaled is an interesting case, because while he is definitely considered among the 'big guns' aka mainstream stars, he didn't move mainstream numbers. Although Suffering From Success was...

Childish Gambino is the latest rapper to sit down with Zane Lowe, and much like Jay Z, Eminem, and Kanye West before him, he tells some very intriguing stories during the sit-down. One tidbit that stood out was the fact that the hook for Gambino's R&B-tinged "3005" was originally written over Drake's "Trophies" beat.
Apparently, Hit-Boy had shopped the beat to 'Bino before Drake, and the...
There isn't much info with the pic, but it definitely offers up excitement for fans of Drake. A photo was posted on Instagram of Drizzy in the studio with hit-making producer Hit-Boy.

It seems like no matter how hard he tries, Kanye West will never live down the infamous 2009 MTV VMAs.

The audio confirms what 'Ye basically said in a recent profile by the New York Times-- he wasn't sorry at all for interrupting Taylor Swift.
Kanye West previously apologized to T...

Hov will remain on top this week, selling...
