| Lupe Fiasco scores his second straight No. 1 on R&B/Hip-Hop Albums as his "Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1" bows atop the list with 89,000 sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
It's his fourth consecutive top 10 album, and follows last year's "Lasers," which opened at No. 1 with a very strong 204,000. Comparatively, "Food & Liquor II" lacked a lead-up single like Lasers' "The Show Goes On" (No. 9 peak on the Hot 100), which propelled the latter album to its more robust bow.
"Bitch Bad," the first single off the "Food & Liquor II" set, continues to climb R&B/Hip-Hop Songs moving 75-65 in its third chart week.
