Kendrick Lamar crosses the million-mark with "good kid, m.A.A.d city," Jay Z and Robin Thicke hold steady and K. Michelle, Hoodie Allen, Stevie Stone and Aubrey O'Day debut into the Top 200.

This week saw several additions to the Top 200 album sales charts. K. Michelle's first effort, Rebellious Soul, had a Top 3 debut. As a result, the "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star earned a spot at #2 in the Top 200 with her Atlantic Records debut, following a late 2000s tenure with Jive.

Another strong addition to the charts came by way of Long Island, New York native Hoodie Allen. His latest release, Americoustic EP, landed at #28 in the Top 200. Hoodie has had some chart success in the past with his 2012 All American EP, which reached at #10 on Billboard's Top Albums. Strange Music's Stevie Stone also entered the charts this week, landing at #76 with 2 Birds 1 Stone. Additionally, onetime Danity Kane member and Bad Boy Records artist Aubrey O'Day broke through the Top 200 with Between Two Evils, her latest effort which reached #131.

The week also found stars holding strong or making gains. Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines held steady in the #4. While Jay Z slipped from #4 to #6, Magna Carta Holy Grail remained in the Top 10 after six weeks on the charts. Kendrick Lamar made gains with good kid, m.A.A.d. city, moving up from #52 to #36, as well as crossing a major benchmark, in the week that also saw him as a prominent figure in Hip Hop conversations after his much-discussed verse on Big Sean's "Control (HOF)" was leaked.
Kendrick Lamar's "Control" Verse Helps Him Control The Charts

Kendrick Lamar's "Control" verse may have had had an impact on his sales. Since his verse on the Big Sean track leaked, the TDE rapper saw an increase in sales that catapulted his critically-acclaimed 2012 album, good kid, m.A.A.d. city, back into the Top 40. The jump from #52 to #36 came on a week that had Lamar as the center of discussions within the genre. He was also the main focus of several rappers' response tracks after he said he was the "King of New York" and the "King of the Coast." Rapper responses came from a slew of artists, including Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, Lupe Fiasco, Papoose and Cassidy. All of the chatter around Lamar and the verse appears to have allowed him to also control the charts as good kid, m.A.A.d. city broke the million mark to be certified platinum. This is Aftermath Entertainment's first platinum album since 2010's Eminem's Recovery (interestingly, their last release), and a first for Top Dawg Entertainment, K.Dot's longtime backer.
Stevie Stone Rocks The Charts With 2 Birds 1 Stone

Following Tech N9ne's Top 5 debut with Something Else, Strange Music has another Missouri emcee break into the charts with Stevie Stone. Stone's 2 Bird 1 Stone debuted at #76 this week with an album that Stone has described as personal. “I was taking the elements of my life,” he said in a press release about the album. “In the business aspect, I’m always on the road. Then there’s the personal, with my family, my kids. There’s all these things I have to accomplish and get done and those are the two biggest birds and there’s one me.” Strange Music's roster can be found throughout the album, with appearances from Rittz, Kutt Calhoun, Brotha Lynch Hung, Ces Cru and Prozak and Tech N9ne, on the single "The Baptism."
