Jadakiss and Fabolous finally released their long-awaited collaborative project Friday On Elm Street (originally titled Freddy Vs. Jason) on November 24. The 12-track album has entered the Billboard 200 at #10 with 33,037 total album equivalent units sold (17,917 in pure album sales and a streaming count of 20,590,451).

No Shame In His Game

Hopsin’s new album, No Shame, also hit the chart this week, landing at #42. With 14,921 total album equivalent units sold (8,912 in pure albums and a streaming count of 7,733,454), it was just enough to crack the Top 50. No Shame serves as the 300 Entertainment rapper’s fifth studio album and the follow-up to 2015’s Pound Syndrome, which debuted at #17. So far, Pound Syndrome is his highest-charting album.

After settling in #43 last week, Kodak Black’s Project Baby 2 mixtape has made a 116 percent jump in sales to land at #12. The Pompano Beach, Florida rapper, who seems to be in the headlines more for his legal woes than his music, sold 31,607 total album equivalent units (1,330 in pure albums and collected a streaming count of 41,343,095) thanks in part to the new deluxe version of the project.

The 20-year-old rapper’s inaugural studio album, Painting Pictures — released in March — peaked at #3. It has since been certified gold by the RIAA.
