Young Money rapper Tyga is enjoying a top five debut on the Billboard 200.
The emcee’s first studio album, “Careless World: Rise of the Last King,” starts at number four on this week’s chart with first-week sales of 61-thousand.
“Careless World” got off to a rather rough start, as copies of the record had to be re-shipped when it was discovered that a sample of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech hadn’t been cleared.
As a result, the majority of the album’s sales during its first few days were downloads.
“Careless World” features Tyga’s hit single “Rack City,” as well as appearances from Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, T-Pain and Lil Wayne. READ MORE

Trey Songz put an interviewer in check after he was asked a question referring to Chris Brown’s supposed Rihanna assault joke Taletela reports.
Trey Songz was recently interviewed by Wild 94.9 when he was asked for his favourite pick-up line.
The interviewer first made reference to the chat-up line Breezy was supposed to be using:
“Hey, can I get your number? I promise I won’t beat you.”
Trey then refused to answer the question saying: “I’m not cool with that question. I’m not cool with this, right there, that’s my homie, we’re not gonna talk like that.”
Chris denied that he was using that line at parties to pick up women, referring to his assault on Rihanna in 2009.
