After taking over the Billboard Top 200 last Wednesday (April 6), hip-hop seemed to have lost its presence in the upper echelon of the album charts this week. The only two rap discs to make it in that category were Wiz Khalifa and Jim Jones
Following up an impressive first-week of almost 200,000 units, Wiz’s Rolling Papers LP slipped 70 percent in the last seven days, moving only 59,300, according to the Nielsen SoundScan report. This made him slide from his position at No. 2 to No. 5. Overall he has a total sales figure of 257,500.
