Poor T-Pain, the dude really does get the short end of the stick when it comes to this hip-hop sh*t. But this new track “Make That Shit Work”, produced by DJ Mustard and featuring Juicy J makes a strong argument for Pain’s relevancy in the 2010s. Judging by the sound of “Make That Sh*t Work” Pain definitely may be sitting on some radio/club gold here. Listen after the jump and be the judge yourself.

It’s been a good minute since we’ve heard anything from Yung Joc. The once striving Bad Boy artist seemed to have reached his creative peek back in 2007 with the Hustlenomics album. And it’s interesting to note that during Joc’s time on top he had a hit single with one T-Pain entitled “Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin’)” which brings us 2014 and Joc has reunited with T-Pain for “Features”. Is this a hint that Joc is looking to regain his throne? We’re not entirely too sure about that but peep the video after the jump to decide for yourselves.

Yes, I know it’s not a hip-hop album, but it is worth mentioning that The Black Keys moved over 207,000 copies of their 7th studio album, El Camino. For those wondering, the Keys took second place on this week’s top 200 falling short of Michael Buble who has now sold an impressive 1.5 million copies of his Christmas album. The late Amy Winehouse also debuted on the charts this week with her posthumous album, Lioness: Hidden Treasures, which sold an estimated 114,000 copies. Despite critical acclaim, The Roots missed the top 10 with their latest gem, undun, as did T-Pain with his latest release rEVOLVEr. In other news, Mistah F.A.B. may be scrapping his backpack, as his latest installment pushed a meager 260 copies. For what it’s worth, the album sounds like some of his best work to date, but I guess most prefer his lyrics watered down. Check back next week for the results on Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa’s collaborative effort as well as the numbers on the debut from unlikely duo of Gucci Mane & V-Nasty.
