Hurricane Chris, Little Brother and Trae Top This Week’s Hip-Hop Releases

Hurricane Chris stands as this week’s top hip-hop debut on the Billboard 200 album chart with his album 51/50 Ratchet. The Shreveport, La. native, who has been burning up airwaves nationwide with his infectious single “Ay Bay Bay,” will land at No. 24 on the charts this week after moving just over 26,000 copies of his debut. Next up we have underground favorites Little Brother, who have just released their first project since splitting with producer 9th Wonder. Getback, the Raleigh, NC duo’s third studio LP, moved about 9,600 copies during its first week in stores and will land at No. 89 on the charts. Life Goes On, the latest from Houston vet Trae, also hit stores last week. Consumers picked up about 7,500 copies, which will place it at No. 104.

    • Fire

      I thought I was the only one who couldn’t find Little Brother’s album. They didn’t have it at Best Buy or Target. I wonder what the fuck happened, because I wanted to get Getback. I know it leaked, but still.
