Story” sold 147-thousand copies last week, which was enough to put him at number one on the album tally.

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony fans can mark their calendars. AllHipHop reports the rap group has announced plans to officially release its new album, “Art of War III,” on November 27th. The record marks the first new music from BTNH since 2010’s “Uni5: The World’s Enemy,” and the first since original members Krazie Bone and Wish Bone left the group and then returned this summer. But Bone Thugs-N-Harmony have reportedly said “Art of War III” will be the last album to feature all five original members.
For now, however, the group is still going strong. They performed at Rock the Bells in San Bernardino, California, last weekend, and are slated to take the stage again when the festival moves to Mountain View, California, this weekend.

Yesterday, Trey Songz released ‘Chapter V’ the singer’s fifth studio album and it has already made an impact on the R&B/Hip-Hop charts. “Chapter V” has delivered three hits thus far: “Dive In,” “Heart Attack,” and “2 Reasons,” featuring T.I. Trey released his fourth single, “Hail Mary,” featuring Lil’ Wayne and Young Jeezy.
In a recent interview with BillBoard, Trey SongzÂ spoke about his Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy 4th single, “Hail Mary,” which coincidentally was the last track to make the cut. “I was in the studio and the album was supposed to be turned in already and I was just in there doing extra songs for mixtape records, etc. And the record was so crazy I said, ‘Let me call Wayne, see if he like it. Maybe he can use it for his project.'” he said. “He put a verse on it. He said he loved it. It was crazy. He sent me the verse back. I started to like the record a little more. And I said, ‘Let me call my homie Jeezy and see if he like it.’ He got on it and the record turned out to be great. We actually held the album up probably a week and a half for that record.”
