Nothing too big transpired on the charts this week when it comes to hip-hop. That's not to say there weren't hip-hop releases-- there most definitely were, however, none could top Drake's Nothing Was The Same at #4 on the Billboard 200.
This week everyone's favorite dope boy Pusha T finally made his Charts debut, with My Name Is My Name. The album, which has been praised highly by most, managed a #4 debut, selling on the lower-end of the projected amount, with 75k.
This week's numbers are in, some more impressive than others. Pusha T's long-awaited debut, My Name Is My Name came in just under expectations, but still managed to put some "Numbers On The Boards" with 74,610 units, though unfortunately not enough to edge Drake out of the number 3 spot.
Pusha T said in an interview that he had the best album of the year. On top of that he said that he had the best production. The audience rating on our site's review of this album at an outstanding 93%.
The projections have arrived for Pusha T's new album My Name Is My Name. Pusha estimated in a previous interview he'd do 100k, although he said he wouldn't be disappointed if he did less-- which is a good thing 'cause it looks like he won't quite reach 100,000.
With Pusha T's new album My Name Is My Name finally on shelves and the internet, the rapper visited the Breakfast Club on Power 105.1 to continue promoting the LP. Pusha has been saying for awhile now that he has the best album of the year, and during his interview he talks about the bold claim.
Pusha T is gearing up for a big week, with the official release of My Name Is My Name tomorrow. The rapper's debut solo effort has been a long time in the making, from the first announcement that the album was coming, to the many delays that the fans experienced.
Pusha T's album My Name Is My Name officially drops next week, but fans have already been able to hear the "rap album of the year" because Pusha let go an album stream a few days ago. As we initially reported, Pusha T let go the stream following an interaction with a Twitter user who threatened to leak the LP.
Pusha T isn't delaying his album My Name Is My Name anymore, with a release date of October 8th set. The rapper is setting high expectations for the solo debut, calling MNIMN the album of the year in many interviews.
Anyone who has followed Pusha T's career knows that the man has a knack for drug dealing metaphors and similes. His latest track "King Push," is no different, and while Push is confident he's the best one doing his particular brand of street rap, he's also careful to dodge certain labels.
