Let’s give it up for Future Hendrix. It feels like his plan was to get an early lead and put his stamp on 2016. After having a great 2015, he dropped the Purple Reign mixtape in January and he came back in February and dropped Evol. Speaking of Evol, we need to make up a new category for mixtapes that you can’t download for free and are only sold on iTunes. Either way, it sold around 133,000 copies and that was enough to grab the #1 spot on the charts. Compare that withDS2 and What a Time to Be Alive (with Drake), and everybody can see that Future is on a roll. *holds cup of purple stuff up in the air*
Am I the only one who totally forgot that Wiz Khalifa dropped an album last week? Is it because I really don’t fuck with Wiz’s music anymore like Kanye said? *shurgs* His 6th album Khalifa lands at #6 and sells roughly 64,000 units. While this is his lowest debut on the charts, don’t feel bad for Wiz. He’s still the first rapper to have a billion views on YouTube and “See You Again” almost made me cry at the end of Furious 7. Plus, he let Amber trap him and I wish just one of my baby mothers looked like that.
The way Young Thug releases music is just as confusing as.. uh, Young Thug’s clothing choices? I’m Up is on sale on iTunes but it was also for the free on DatPiff. I guess this is cool for people that are not old as hell like me, but it feels like stuff like this has kept him from making an impact on the charts. I’m Up sold around 22,000 copies and landed at #22.
