This week in sales proves the power of R&B and the fading of some of Hip-hop powerhouses. Ne-Yo’s Year of the Gentleman debuts at #2, moving an impressive 250,600 units this week. Nelly made his return with Brass Knuckles debuting at #3 selling 83,715 albums, a far cry from his first week numbers for Sweat and Suit, his last two albums. DJ Khaled’s We Global debuted in the Top 10 this week landing at #7 selling 49,570 copies.

Crooner T-Pain has been making a run this year that’s been very reminiscent of last year’s – he’s been on several hit singles and is starting to make his own waves with his single. Now, his album Thr33 Ringz is just a few weeks away, and Pain wants his fans excited, so he dropped a mixtape today called Pree Ringz with DJ Lil Boy. Check out the mixtape, which features Young Cash, Gorilla Zoe, and a whole lot of DJ Khaled production. Tracklist and Download link below.

The Second Annual Rick Ross Be Out Day was halted yesterday after gunfire broke out when CO Ross hit the stage. What I want to know is why people even feel the need to bring guns to an event such as this which is to encourage the local kids to go back to school taking place in the middle of the day in the middle of a public place. People attending the event ran for cover as as of yet no injuries have been reported.
Rick Ross Be Out day is sponsored by the rapper himself and local companies who provide kids with clothing and the essentials in order for their return to school to be an easy one and coast effective one for the impoverished families in the area. However in other Rick Ross news, DJ Khaled has gone on the record explaining that there is no beef between him and the rapper like people had implied. Good to know that all is as it should be in Miami.
Check out the King of Dade’s brand-new video. Got to give it to him – he sure does have a knack for recruiting a whole slew of hot artists for his tracks. Let us know what you think of his most recent onslaught of hip-pop. Greenscreen + a whole lot of dancing + T-Pain in a top-hat + mediocre rap = “We Out Here Grindin”?
