The album, distributed by Central South and Infinity Music Distribution, immediately shot to #1 on iTunes’ Hip-Hop Chart, and held court at #8 on the Top Albums Chart for the first week of release, sharing the Top 10 with albums from such chart-topping artists as Adele, Big Time Rush and Bruce Springsteen.
