*Both of last week's front-runners, Big Sean's "Fire" and Drake's "All Me," graduate to our Top Hip Hop and R&B Chart this week. Taking their place on top are Rockie Fresh's "Kush Do" (formerly sixth) and Jay Z's "Picasso Baby" (a new feature).

*Debuting along with Hova's joint, Stalley's "NineteenEighty7," claims 10th.

*Previously "Next Up," 2 Chainz' "Where U Been?" enters the chart in ninth.

*Nas' "Made Nas Proud" and ScHoolboy Q's "Collard Greens" drop from our Top Picks, landing in seventh and 11th.

*J. Cole's "New York Times" and Ludacris' "Helluva Night" make their exit from our charts.

*Future's "Honest," Vado's "Straight for the Summer" and Tyga's "Hit'em Up" narrowly miss appearing on the chart. Your feedback and ratings will determine whether they make the cut next week!
