(Sigh) Not the best week for hip-hop. Not on the charts, anyway. Maybach Music Group’s Self Made, Vol. 1 was bounced from the top ten, falling seven spots from 5 to 12. On the bright side, Eminem continues to dominate music sales, with his collaboration with Royce Da 5’9, Hell: The Sequel earning the top spot on the iTunes Top 10 Rap Albums chart based solely on digital pre-orders. Shady just keeps on rolling. Check out how other rap albums fared below.
