Continuing their Decoding series, Life+Times gets Schoolboy Q to break down his single Hoover Street. You can find this hot joint on his recent released album Oxymoron.
A lot of good albums have been released within the past two weeks but are the sales numbers as high as the artists hoped for? Last week, Schoolboy Q released his debut album Oxymoron and Kid Cudi released his 4th studio album Satellite Flight. As expected, Schoolboy Q sold more copies and landed himself at the #1 spot on the Billboard charts with 138,517 copies sold. Meanwhile, Cudi came in at #4 with 85,860 copies of the LP sold.
Who had the better album in your opinion? Stay tuned for next week’s sales numbers from Rick Ross and Pharrell.
Far East Movement‘s The Illest single is currently doing well on charts and today they decide to drop the official remix for the track. It now features new verses from Schoolboy Q and B.o.B.
