The bad news: there’s not a single rap title in the Top 10 of this week’s Billboard 200. Adele’s excellent sophomore album, 21, is sitting pretty at numero uno with 153,030. She moved more units in one week than the 10 top selling rap albums combined. The good news? Lupe is inching closer to gold, which means he’ll live to see another album.

Here’s a breakdown of this week’s biggest movers. The STD numbers are parentheses.
