Rap Music Chart - August 5, 2013


*Last week's front-runners, Kanye West's "BLKKK SKKKN HEAD" and Big K.R.I.T.'s "MULTI," graduate to our Top Hip Hop and R&B Chart. Two new features, Big Sean's "Fire" and Drake's "All Me," debut in their place.

*Also new this week, Action Bronson's "Water Sports" and Rick Ross' "I Wonder Why" enter the chart in third and 16th.

*Previously "Next Up," E-40's "All My N**gas" and Vado's "Straight for the Summer" claim 14th and 20th.

*Pusha T's "Who I Am," J. Cole's "Crooked Smile" and Drake's "Jodeci [Freestyle]" tumble from our Top Picks, landing in fifth, eighth and 10th.

*J. Cole's "N**gaz Know," Kid Ink's "Money & Power," Wale's "Bad (Remix)," 2 Chainz' "Feds Watching," Action Bronson's "The Rockers" and Big K.R.I.T.'s "What You Know About It" make their exit from our charts.

*2 Chainz' "Where U Been?," A$AP Ferg's "Hood Pope" and Black Hippy's "U.O.E.N.O. (Remix)" narrowly miss appearing on the chart. Your feedback and ratings will determine whether they make the cut next week!
