Several projects were released December 4 and it was tough competition for album sales. G-Eazy comes out as the top Rap album with Rick Ross close behind. J. Cole and Dreamville, Curren$y and Jeremih all make their first appearances on this week’s Billboard Top 200 chart.

G-Eazy’s Sophomore Album Soars

G-Eazy’s debut LP, These Things Happen, was the #3 project upon its release, beating out Ab-Soul’s These Days.

Rick Ross’s Black Market Puts Up Numbers
