OFWGKTA’s macabre maestro delivers a project that’s as solid and compelling as it is conflicted.
Isn't it crazy how some rappers just refuse to retire? Take Jay Z for example, he retired about a decade ago and that lasted all of no time at all. It's hard to put down something you truly love, and even though rap is a young man's sport, this list is dedicated to those who hardly age.

We see two new entries when it comes to hip-hop on Charts Don't Lie this week. They belong to Odd Future's Earl Sweatshirt and A$AP Mob's A$AP Ferg. While both rappers moved respectable amounts, it gives us a moment to think about the whole ideas of crews in hip-hop, and how no matter what, there is always one rap leader who has to make an impression on the audience first.
It's been a minute since we've heard about a Rick Ross run-in with the police, mainly, we hear about him through various lawsuits these days. Nonetheless, the rapper was arrested this afternoon on a marijuana charge.
