One of the few eccentricities of Guardians of the Galaxy was its soundtrack, which featured jams from the ’70s and ’80s — the type that would get sampled in hip-hop. The soundtrack debuted at No. 1 on this week’s charts with 103,199 copies sold. It’s the most hip-hop thing that graces the top 15.

PARTYNEXTDOOR 2 and Common’s Nobody’s Smiling completely falls off the chart this week after leading the Hip-Hop/R&B fields in their past two respective debut weeks. The New Classic from former XXL Freshman Iggy Azalea leads at No. 18 with 12, 272 units sold, a 4 percent increase from last week. The New Classic was originally released on April 21.

Most of the other albums experienced a drop: Trey Songz’s Trigga from No. 16 to 22 (10,084), Michael Jackson’s Xscape from No. 28 to No. 34 (7,081), John Legend’s Love in the Future from No. 39 to No. 40 (5,790), Pharrell’s G I R L from No. 40 to 41 (5,781) and August Alsina’s Testimony from No. 48 to out of the Top 50. The Beyhive came through though; Beyonce is back in the Top 50 with 4,814 to land at No. 48.

1. Guardians of the Galaxy Soundtrack, 103,199
18. Iggy Azalea, The New Classic, 12, 272
22. Trey Songz, Trigga, 10,084
34. Michael Jackson, Xscape, 7,081
40. John Legend, Love in the Future, 5,790
41. Pharrell William, G I R L, 5,781
48. Beyonce, Beyonce, 4,814

After serving six years in prison for assault, Remy Ma is now a free woman and ready to get back on her grizzly. She’s wasted no time letting her presence be known by quickly hopping on DJ Khaled’s “They Don’t Love You No More (Remix).” A half a decade on lock down definitely didn’t alter the former Terror Squad MC’s rhyme style as Mrs. Papoose seemed to go straight for the jugular of an unnamed female rapper on the track leaving many to speculate if she was going at either Nicki Minaj or Iggy Azalea. Remy dispelled those rumors in her first post prison interview with Funk Master Flex, saying she would like to work with the current stars of female rap. “Iggy Azalea, and Nicki [Minaj],” she said.

Further elaborating on her stance of working with other female artists instead of playing the bully role, Remy spoke on the difference between how male and female rappers are perceived. “What I think happens with females in this game, they tend to allow other people to pit us against each other,” she said. “I’ve said this before. They make it seem like there can only be one female. It can be a thousand guys that’s putting out music and rapping and doing what they do, but when it comes to females in this hip-hop business, they make it seem like it can only be one, and if there’s more than one then ‘Alright, y’all better be at each other’s throats every chance that you get.’ And any time you say one of those things, they’re like, ‘Oh yeah, she has to be talking about this person when she said that.’ And I just feel like it got really crazy, to the point where I wouldn’t tolerate it.”

Peep the entire interview, below.

Iggy Azalea’s infectious single, “Fancy,” is inescapable. The song pops up with every turn of the radio dial, regardless of station format and according to a report from The Washington Post, that’s exactly how radio station brand managers planned it. The Post revealed today that “Fancy” was a beneficiary of Clear Channel’s “On The Verge Program.”

The program was created to give artists on the verge of a breakthrough more exposure. The process of choosing an artist comes down to Clear Channel brand managers selecting a handful of artists from different genres and presenting them to program directors for a vote on which songs they think will appeal most to their listeners. Once a song is decided on, it is mandatory that each of Clear Channel’s 840 stations play the song at least 150 times. “Fancy” was chosen on April 3—just in time for the summer. The rest is history.

The strength of “Fancy” has propelled Iggy to new heights. She performed the song at last night’s ESPY Awards and, as of yesterday, will be headlining the LA version of “Made In America.”

Public Enemy frontman Chuck D has been on a tear against the current state of hip-hop as of late and took to Twitter yesterday to blast his next person of interest: Iggy Azalea. Chuck caught wind of the picture below of Iggy Azalea with the caption, “Me And Ma Nigga’s<3,” which he took offense to. The legendary MC called out the Australian rapper on Twitter and when he was told that the picture may have been altered to have that caption he was still relentless in his criticism:

a new straight path to slavery Here comes a endorsed sanctioned CORPlantation artist with A line straight out of 1853 pic.twitter.com/OiUZhQ7DUi

True or not the IGGY thing is a reality when you call yourself with the slaveass term that was branded on skin & today marketed, sht happens

Iggy has not responded as of press time.
