Nipsey Hussle’s Grammy-nominated album, ‘Victory Lap,’ re-enters the Billbaord 200 charts, and comes in heavy at No. 2. Since his passing, fans worldwide have been streaming his music and paying their respects to the late rapper and his legacy.
Back in April, when ‘Victory Lap’ first debuted, the album earned 66,000 album units in the U.S. during the week it was released, earning a spot at No. 4.
The ‘Victory Lap’ album was Nip’s first studio, although he had released several mixtapes prior. Four of his previous projects even debuted on new Billboard 200 as well. According to Billboard, “2013’s Crenshaw bows at No. 63 with 11,000 units, 2016’s Slauson Boy 2 starts at No. 109 with 8,000 units, 2010’s The Marathon enters at No. 179 with 6,000 units, and 2014’s Mailbox Moneydebuts at No. 192 with nearly 6,000 units. All four albums registered negligible unit sums in the previous tracking week.”
Los Angeles and all of his fans worldwide are not only giving back to his family, but keeping his legacy alive, by streaming his music.
LONG LIVE NIPSEY HUSSLE.
