Drake & Lil Wayne Remain Only Rappers in Top 40 of Billboard 200 Charts

YMCMB is represented well on the charts.

Drake and Lil Wayne are the only rappers present in the top 40 of the Billboard 200 album chart this week.

Drake’s Take Care holds down the No. 4 spot for the second straight week, powered by selling 90,200 more copies. In its third week in stores, Drake’s sophomore effort has now tallied 894,400 units.

In addition to Take Care, Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV remains in the top 40 despite dropping 19 spots, from No. 15 to No. 34. Pushing out 23,200 more discs in its fourteenth week has brought Tha Carter IV total to 1,775,600.

The collaborative soundtrack Mac + Devin Go to High School: Music from and Inspired By the Movie by Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa could impact the charts with their release next week.

Stay tuned to XXLMag.com next Wednesday to see if Drizzy and Weezy go for another week as the lone two MCs atop within top 40. –Christopher Minaya
