The year starts off with Kendrick Lamar's "good kid, m.A.A.d city" leading the pack for Hip Hop on the charts, with T.I. not far behind.

T.I. and Kendrick Lamar set off 2013 by going back-to-back on the charts. After Tip's Trouble Man: Heavy is the Head had an impressively strong debut on the charts two weeks ago, he is edged out only by Kendrick Lamar on this week's SoundScan, with good kid, m.A.A.d city pulling ahead by one spot at No. 14.

Further down the chart, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' collaborative debut The Heist continues to post numbers following the success of their breakout single "Thrift Shop," which was certified platinum this week. Wiz Khalifa's O.N.F.I.C. slipped further down the charts, dropping from No. 22 to 33, while 2 Chainz's Based on a T.R.U. Story bumped up from No. 47 to 39.

The first week of the New Year wasn't as strong for Hip Hop as usual, mostly due to the fact that there haven't been any major releases in the past few weeks. Check below to see where this week's albums sit.

Kendrick Lamar Perseveres With good kid, m.A.A.d city

Even leading into the New Year, Kendrick Lamar's success story proves to be one of music's greatest products of 2012. After initially bowing at No. 2 with 242,000 copies sold following its release on October 22nd, good kid, m.A.A.d city leads the pack for Hip Hop releases on this week's chart, moving up from No. 17 to 14 with 36,000 copies sold. It was just hundreds of copies ahead of Tip's Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head, which is gradually heading towards gold certification. K. Dot's bump on the charts could have something to do with the recent release of his music video for "Backseat Freestyle," which was inexplicably removed from YouTube after less than 24 hours on the web.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Hijack The Charts With The Heist

While Kendrick Lamar could be considered 2012's greatest success story, Seattle's Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are looking to be 2013's. The pair independently released their collaborative full-length debut The Heist back in October, making a strong bow at No. 2 with 78,000 copies sold. Based on the success of their now platinum-certified lead single "Thrift Shop," the guys continue to reign on the charts, surging from No. 46 to 21, even though they sold 23,000 copies - only 1,000 more than last week. Still, the duo's accomplishments show that major label backing may not be the way to go for artists on the rise.

I def see it going Plat. He hasn't even released Poetic Justice yet, and once that single is released and pushed, the women will eat it up and they're the main demographic that buys cd's.
