First Week Sales For Playboi Carti's Self-Titled Debut Project

By Kevin Goddard

According to HitsDoubleDaily, Playboi Carti, which features A$AP Rocky, Lil Uzi Vert, & Leven Kali, sold 28,051 units in the opening week, with 7K of those being pure sales. While some might think those numbers are terrible, it really isn’t all too bad considering the project surfaced with barely any promotion. And after all, it is his "debut" effort.

But now with the single “WokeUpLikeThis” & “New Choppa” both picking up momentum, the project should only continue to get more attention moving forward and deservingly so. Stream the project here if you've been sleeping on it and be sure to show your support on iTunes. (Read More)

Lil Yachtys Says 'Teenage Emotions' Is Dropping Within The Next Month

By Kevin Goddard

To promote his new singles “Peek A Boo” with Migos & "Harley,” Lil Yachty made his way by The Breakfast Club yesterday and chopped it up with the DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne The God for a 30-minute conversation.

During his time there, Yachty addressed the recent incident with his heckler at SXSW, making “It Takes Two” for Target, shots Vic Mensa took at home recently, what his upcoming plans are, & more. But what also caught our attention at the end of the interview was Yachty’s mention of Teenage Emotions release date.

When asked “When the album dropping?” Yachty almost slipped up and revealed he couldn't put it out yet. But when Angela Yee tried to get out of him, she asked “is it soon? like within the next month?” and Yachty quickly replied “yes” with no hesitation. He also added that it wouldn't be a surprise release either, it’s just they’re wanting everything to be perfect. So don't be surprised if the release date surfaces in the next week or so.

Rae Sremmurd & Gucci Mane's 'Black Beatles' Is Certified 5X Platinum

By Angus Walker

Congrats to the "Black Beatles" -- aka the Rae Sremmurd bros, Gucci Mane, and Mike Will Made-It -- for selling 5 million singles.

Who knew the song would be such a smash? "Black Beatles" appeared on Rae Sremmurd's SremmLife 2 and was released as a single a month after the album. The historic music video dropped a week later. Then came the social media phenomenon known as the Mannequin Challenge, which often used "Black Beatles" as its soundtrack. One of those to participate in the stunt was one of two living members of The Fab Four. "Love those Black Beatles," tweeted Sir Paul McCartney.

"Black Beatles" rose to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 -- becoming both Rae Sremmurd and Gucci Mane's first No. 1 single -- at the end of November. The song would go on to spend 7 nonconsecutive weeks with the No. 1 spot.

Guwop shared a picture of himself holding the 5x platinum plaque, standing next to Mike -- his day-one producer. Mike Will Made-It, Gucci Mane slayed it. (Read More)
