Tyler, The Creator Lands His First Number 1 Album With ‘IGOR’

According to reporting from The New York Times IGOR, Tyler the Creator’s latest album, topped DJ Khaled’s Father of Asahd LP for the coveted no. 1 spot in this week’s Billboard 200 albums chart. Surprisingly or not, this is Tyler the Creator’s first no. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart and his fifth album overall. IGOR had 165,000 equivalent album units to Khaled’s 136,000. Khaled actually edged out Tyler in streaming numbers (123.2 million versus 122.9), but Tyler made up for it in the number of copies sold (74,000 to 34,000).

Both albums’ physical numbers were helped by merchandise bundles Tyler sold the full album alongside t-shirts, stickers, and political signage, while Khaled bundled his with an energy drink.

The rapper himself also achieves a historical accomplishment as the first solo rapper to debut at No. 1 with a self-produced and self-arranged record.

Responding in a pair of tweets, “honestly didnt think people would enjoy this album based on alot of thing, so again, thank you, i mean it. alot alot of effort put into this. not that that should dictate if people like it or not but im happy all that time and attention paid off.”

Other notable albums to appear on the chart were the National’s new album I Am Easy To Find debuted this week at #5, right behind Billie Eilish’s WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? and Khalid’s Free Spirit.

Check out the video below of Tyler receiving the news of his first number one album:

WATCH: Skepta – “Bullet From A Gun” (Music Video)

Fans of UK’s grime king Skepta have been patiently waiting for the follow-up to his critically-acclaimed 2016 album Konnichiwa, and now the three-year wait is officially over as the new project arrives in just a matter of days. To spearhead the promo of his fifth LP, officially titled Ignorance Is Bliss, Skepta unveils the visuals for the album’s first single “Bullet From A Gun.”



The Tottenham MC takes directing into his own hands for this music video, with co-credits going to British filmmaker Duncan Loudon. Camden Town Tube Station makes for the setting, creating a dark underground vibe that only gets more ominous as the nearly three-minute clip commences forward. From a random baby carriage to passing pedestrians, and even a debut of his possible upcoming Nike ShoxTL collab, there’s a lot going on in the foreground that adds to the overall tale. The main focal point happens towards the 2:00 mark, where cops are seen getting extra aggressive with two bystanders. The theme is pretty clear, but it’s up to the viewer to ultimately define the film as to what it all really means.

Watch the music video for “Bullet From A Gun” above, and look out for the Ignorance Is Bliss album by Skepta to drop this Friday (May 31) on all streaming platforms.

WATCH: Casanova – “Block Me” (Music Video)

Since dropping his Free At Last EP back in February, Casanova has been on a steadfast grind to get these fire music videos off. While he took us to Lagos for “2AM” alongside Tory Lanez and Davido earlier this year, then headed in an X-rated route with the Pornhub-premiered “Splash” visuals that arrived last month, the latest brings us a cautionary tale of what happens when three things just don’t quite mix: your relationship, a mansion filled with vixens that are down for whatever, and, unfortunately, your social media account.

The new video for “Block Me” shows Cas figuring out how to handle the situation when your sidechick decides to scroll through your social media when all you’re trying to do is just turn up with the squad and a few bad biddies. As you might guess, the end result isn’t particularly the dream scenario for our Brooklyn-bred homie, but that’s what replacements are for as the Roc Nation emcee does in the end without breaking a sweat. Utilizing that block button will for sure give you a temporary form of relief, but we ultimately see that the real way to get over someone is by simply throwing a huge house party to get your mind off things. Well, something like that.

Watch Casanova’s new music video for “Block Me” above, and then take a look below to peep the short “Making Of” segment posted on his IG:

For the past four years Brooklyn native and G-Unit signee Uncle Murda has brought the heat for the year’s end wrap up, including all of the beefs, statements and overall unforgettable moments for the past 365 days. Even with a little rap-up competition from VA ghostwriter Mad Skillz, Murda’s rendition always tips the scales in terms of content.

Leaving no one out, from Kanye to Young Buck to Cardi B, Murda’s Rap-Up is an entertaining way to remember what went down in 2018.

Australia Artist ChillinIt’s Independent Debut Album Goes #1

Far from an overnight success that he may appear to the casual fan, ChillinIt has been patiently developing and honing his craft for many years into one of the most exciting rappers to emerge out of Australia. Getting somewhat of a breakthrough via the influential Hustle Hard TV YouTube some six years ago, the talented and versatile Sydney rapper has recently released his excellent debut album “Women, Weed & Wordplay” to widespread critical acclaim and success. With an impressive independent 1.5 million-plus streams with no playlist help or distribution deal in the first week alone, the proof is in the numbers for the versatile wordsmith with the album charting at #1. Along with contemporaries Wombat, Nerve, Talakai, Shadow, Huskii, Lil Sknow, Mitchos Da Menace, Triple One, TRYL and Skrub, ChillinIt has led the charge for the new generation of skilled emcees to emerge from down under – aided by the excellent work that the affiliated Body Bag Media platform has been able to develop. Building on the style of the independent foundation created by the likes of Kerser, Fraksha, Fortay, and Alex Jones before him, ChillinIt has certainly emerged in the last year or two with a legion of fans and a strong potential to take his refreshing sound truly global. His music has already organically linked him to the UK, scoring a spot on JDZ Media and a collaboration with English grime emcee Kamakaze. The charismatic ChillinIt oozes star factor and has cultivated a family of fans known as the #420Fam. It is easy to see why he has developed such a rabid following in the recent years, with skills and authenticity on the microphone only matched by his energetic live shows that have many saying are some of the best in the country. There’s no rapping off phones, there’s no stumbling and fumbling his way through live shows just near complete hungry, raw, professionalism. Amassing tens of millions streams/views in the last year or so alone, ChillinIt definitely has the potential to be one of the first rappers from Australia to truly break through to the contemporary American market and has already sparked significant major record label interest. The hungry rapper is keen to showcase his many different styles with lyrical content to match almost any mood. If reaction videos were a gauge of his potential overseas, he may eventually prove to be as fire globally as he is at home. With a strong, consistent work ethic already in the young talented artist, it will be an interesting few coming months to see how ChillinIt is able to negotiate his increasingly new levels of success which only seems to develop by the hour. A truly talented rapper at the core, Australia is proud that such an artist is leading the charge and expect him to level up again soon. Expect to see him on further major Australasian tour support and festival slots by his own accord soon – before taking the world by storm. Check his debut album “Women, Weed & Wordplay” streaming now and catch up on his extensive back catalog before it’s a Chill takeover. #420Family The post Australia Artist ChillinIt’s Independent Debut Album Goes #1 appeared first on The Source.

Dipset Back! The Diplomats Plan to Drop Their New Album ‘Diplomatic Ties’ on Thanksgiving

The boys are back!

Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana, and, yes, even Freeky Zekey — known collectively as legendary Harlem rap clique The Diplomats — are finally dropping a new album together for the first time in 14 years.



Not since 2004’s Koch Records-released Diplomatic Immunity 2 has the group been officially on wax as a collective, but the wait is over as Diplomatic Ties will arrive in just a few weeks via Empire Distribution. The distribution company and record label, home to the likes of Freddie Gibbs, pop sensation Trevor Jackson and the chart-topping viral funnyman Lil Duval, is set to release Dipset’s new project on Thanksgiving Day (November 22), so we’ll have a little something more to celebrate this coming holiday season.

To prepare for the project, the guys are teasing a new song titled “Sauce Boyz” (seen above), in addition to a documentary to be released a week after the album drops and a “Black Friday Concert” at the renowned Apollo Theater located in the heart of their hometown of Harlem.

Cop tickets to The Diplomats’ upcoming concert by clicking here, and stay tuned for the “Sauce Boyz” music video and the full Diplomatic Ties album arriving soon. It’s Dipset — again!
