The marathon continues.
Nipsey Hussle‘s music is currently climbing the charts following his untimely death.
The rapper was shot and killed on March 31 in Los Angeles, roughly a month after he released his debut album, Victory Lap.
Released on February 16, 2018 through All Money In No Money Out and Atlantic Records, Victory Lap has now soared to no. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart.
The project, which features Kendrick Lamar, YG, Buddy, Diddy, CeeLo Green, Dom Kennedy, The-Dream, and more, originally debuted at no. 4 on the chart, selling roughly 53,000 total album equivalent units in its opening week.
Hussle’s music sales had jumped across the board on streaming services also as early as April 1st— the day after his death. His past mixtapes — Crenshaw, The Marathon, Mailbox Money and Slauson Boy 2 — have also re-entered the chart.
