Graduating from our Rap and R&B/Pop Charts along with Chainz' cut are records by Far East Movement, Chief Keef and more.
On our Top Rap Chart, the graduation of 2 Chainz' “No Lie” and Chief Keef's “I Don't Like (Remix)” make the jump to our Top Hip Hop and R&B lineup, clearing the way for David Banner's “Amazing” (a new addition) and Nas' “Daughters” (a former Top Pick) to claim the top two. Other new additions come courtesy of Meek Mill and Twista, and joints by DJ Drama, Wale and Big K.R.I.T. reemerge after a period of absence from the chart.
