With 100,000 units sold, Wale's The Album About Nothing comes in at No. 1 on this week's Billboard 200 chart. The album is Wale's second straight No. 1 project, following 2013's The Gifted. The Jerry Seinfeld-inspired album has been received well by critics and fans and is the fourth hip-hop project to go No. 1 in 2015 joining Drake's If You're Reading This, It's Too Late, Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp a Butterfly and the soundtrack to Fox's hit TV show Empire.

Coming in at No. 2 on the chart with 74,000 sold is the Furious 7 soundtrack that features the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Kid Ink, Tyga, YG, Wale, T.I., Young Thug, Juicy J and Kevin Gates. After debuting at No.17 last week, the soundtrack jumped 15 spots to No. 2 as  sales increased by 202 percent thanks to the release of the film and the success of songs like Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again."

Ludacris' Ludaversal sold 73,000 in its first week. The follow up to 2010's Battle of the Sexes, which debuted at No. 1 with 137,000 sold, marks Luda's eighth top 10 debuting album. All in all, it was a successful week for hip-hop as four of the top five albums were rap projects.
