    Fans at the mtvU Woodie awards were impressed by a stage move Macklemore broke out the show, which found him performing an act similar to crowd surfing, but instead walking across the audience as they held him by his feet. It seems that Wu-Tang rapper Method Man was not impressed by the feat, mainly because he's been doing it himself for some time.

    The Grammys finally go down this weekend, on Sunday January 27th, so there's plenty of Grammy discussion going down these past few days both rap-related and not.  In the rap sphere, the competition is stiff, mainly divided between Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Jay Z. Of course, Kanye West and J. Cole, among other rappers, also received nods this year.

     Macklemore continues to pile up the accomplishments. Next up on his list is the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. The Seattle rapper took to his twitter a little while ago to reveal the cover. Alongside the picture, Mac wrote #Sharkfacegang. Coincidental that Shark Week just ended, but I do kind of see what he's saying there. Make sure to pick up a copy of the issue when it hits newsstands at the end of the month. Check out the cover in the gallery above.

    For hip-hop aficionados, out of all the glorious things it has done, the Internet has most importantly allowed the entire music industry to change. Instead of waiting for labels to promote the hottest new artist and go through painstaking processes to find them, Tweets, Facebook shares, YouTube videos allow every musician, big or small, to be heard. This has allowed rappers to rise rapidly to prominence on the back of a few songs showcasing their potential.

    Macklemore and Ryan Lewis had a huge 2013, despite releasing no new music. The duo's debut project, The Heist was released in 2012, but it made the majority of its impact throughout the following year, earning the two collaborators some Grammy nominations in the process. It seems that the rapper/producer team is finally through pushing their breakthrough project, as Mack announced via Instagram that he and Lewis are back in the studio together, captioning a photo of his creative partner with "Very happy to be back in the lab with this guy.... @ryanlewis".

    This week we see a new chart-topper arrive, the New York rapper who takes on that southern style, A$AP Rocky. Rocky's debut album, Long.Live.A$AP did surprisingly well. We see albums leak all the time-- usually it's just a week prior to the album's release though. In Rocky's case, we saw it leak a month early. However, Rocky continued doing promo and dropping singles, not worrying about the album leak or bumping his release date up. And it worked out well for him, he still sold a large amount of copies, and landed #1 on the Billboard 200.

    French Montana joins Charts Don't Lie this week, with his debut album Excuse My French. French, Diddy and the whole Bad Boy team went hard with promo for this one, rounded up the biggest features in the game, but the album wasn't able to move more than 50k opening week. With the decrease of hip-hop album sales forever waning, this isn't horrible, but it isn't the "classic" numbers French may have been expecting.

    As the past few months have been slow all-around when it comes to music, we are not seeing many, if any, new hip-hop entries on the charts. However this shortage of music is coming to a close; the past week or two have seen many big songs drop, and a mixtape or three. We'll definitely begin to see some new names on Charts Don't Lie as early as next week, with Justin Timberlake's 20/20 Experience dropping on March 19th. Nonetheless, album-wise, we aren't seeing anything new this week. Instead, we have T.I.
