The Numbers Are In! Find Out How Much Young Thug’s ‘Barter 6′ Sold The First Week!

Billboard

Though Young Thug touted the controversial Barter 6 as just a mixtape, it was still made for sale on iTunes like Drake’s If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late – but unlike Drake, Thugger’s did not sell very well.

After one week, Barter 6 debuts at a measly 26 on the Billboard 200, with just under 19,000 sold. In comparison, last week’s other semi-surprise release – Tyler, The Creator’s Cherry Bomb – sold 58k and debuted at number 4. Hopefully Thugger’s official debut fares a little better.

Billboard’s Top 10 Album Sales, Week Ending 4/12/15 … Furious 7 Soundtrack Races To #1

Billboard

Currently on its fourth week in stores, the Furious 7 soundtrack has sped up to number one on the Billboard 200 this week, moving another 111,000 units. The project is being fueled by the mega success of its lead single – Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again” with Charlie Puth. The song plays during the final scene in the movie, and sold 464,000 downloads for the past week. Wiz also recently premiered the video, as well as performed it on NBC’s The Voice, both of which also helped immensely.

Elsewhere on the chart, Kendrick and Drake still remain comfortably in the top 10. Meanwhile, last week’s number one album, Wale’s The Album About Nothing, falls to number 11 in its second week with 33,000 units sold.

Hood Sh*t: DMX’s Backstage Rider For Los Angeles Concert Revealed

DMX

Despite dealing with some very harsh legal allegations recently, DMX put on quite the show in Los Angeles at the Belasco Theater on Wednesday night. However, every artist usually has a list of demands that they NEED in order to perform to their full potential. DMX’s full backstage rider has been revealed, and we can’t help but laugh at his demands! The Yonkers-native had special requests for both backstage and his hotel room comprising of:

1) Three bottles of Hennessy
2) Two boxes of condoms for the hotel room (smart, play it safe)
3) A carton of Newport cigar
4) A wide assortment of fried chicken
5) An assortment of candy including Now & Laters, Oreos, Sunkist, Starburst and Skittles.

Usually we hear wild things like an all-gold toilet seat with diamonds in it but leave it up to good ol’ X to keep it hood and take it back to the basics.

Forbes Hip-Hop Cash Princes 2015 List

Forbes

Every year, Forbes releases a Hip-Hop Cash Kings list that includes the biggest money-earners in the genre, but last year, they began doing a Hip-Hop Cash Princes list as well. This list has less to do with the actual amount they’ve earned thus far, but more so focuses on predicting who will soon make their way into the Kings category. It’s kind of like the XXL Freshmen list for money-making, in a sense. Any hip-hop act under age 30 as of March 31st, 2015 is eligible for the list, as long as he or she hasn’t appeared on a previous Cash Kings or Princes list.

Curated by DJ Khaled, Tyga, Peter Rosenberg and Forbes staff writers Natalie Robehmed and Zack O’Malley Greenburg this year, the Class of 2015 is made up of 12 artists – 2 singers, 3 producers (one of which is also a rapper) and 7 rappers…and only one girl made the cut. Can you guess who? Hit the gallery to find out who made the Forbes Hip-Hop Cash Princes 2015 list!
