Two Chainz is celebrating a trip to the top of the Billboard 200. Nielsen SoundScan reports the rapper’s debut album “Based on a T.R.U. Story” sold 147-thousand copies last week, which was enough to put him at number one on the album tally. The emcee is the first hip-hop star to bow on top with a debut album since Mac Miller did it last November, and he’s only the third act from any genre to achieve the feat this year.
U.K. pop group One Direction also came in at number one with their first album “Up All Night,” as did Jack White with his solo debut, “Blunderbuss.” As for the rest of this week’s chart, Insane Clown Posse’s latest effort “Mighty Death Pop” arrives at number four with 41-thousand copies sold.
The previous Billboard 200 chart topper, the “Now 43” compilation, falls to number two, while Rick Ross’ “God Forgives, I Don’t” slides down a spot to number three. Maroon 5 rounds out the top five this week with “Overexposed.” The homies over at Crunktastical got all the photos from his recent NYC album release party check out all the photos ….
