Australian Country Singer Keith Urban, topped the Billboard 200 Album Charts, beating Canadian singer The Weeknd, in a tremendously close race.
Billboard reported that 'Fuse' sold 98,000 copies whereas 'Kiss Land' sold an equally impressive 95,000, with 3,000 copies separating the No.1 and No.2 spot, based on Nielson SoundScan data collected from the past week.
This was the smallest margin of victory since January of this year (2013) where the soundtrack to 'Les Miserables' nudged past Mumford &Sons 'Babel' by only 2,000 copies. Rapper 2-Chainz took the No.3 spot with 'B.O.A.T.S II #METIME' selling 63,000 copies which is a huge drop compared to his debut album 'Based on a T.R.U Story' that finished at the top spot, selling more than twice as much with 147,000 copies.

Served with an ample splodge of 'Me Time sauce' - like mayonnaise but more hip-hop.
2 Chainz has enticed his fans to fork out for the deluxe edition of his latest album, B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time, not only with a few extra tracks but with a series of recipes designed to link up with each of the songs.
2 Chainz Reveals His Chef Side.
It's not even like the recipes are compensating for anything: the rapper's second album is still exceptionally produced and showcases the same rich ability for verse as his debut effort from the former Tity Boi, Based on a T.R.U. Story. The album welcomes collaboration from Black Eyed Peas' Fergie, Ma$e and a splash and dash Chrisette Michele and Sunni Patterson.
Music Midtown is growing once again with a new stage and a bigger and better line-up.
It looks like Atlanta's Music Midtown festival is on its way back up as 2013 brings us the biggest line-up since its return from a six year hiatus.
We are back to where we started with Midtown, which takes place on September 10th - 21st at Piedmont Park, as we see a 2 day, 2 stage event just like its debut in 1994. We've still got a long way to go before it's back at its peak with 3 days and 6 stages, but the line-up hasn't far off doubled from last year and another stage has been added too. The excitement when it was announced that Midtown was making its return in 2011 is hard to beat, but we reckon this year's line-up could reel in an even more impressive overall ticket sale.

This year's festival season may have seen its disasters, but Made In America closed the summer of 2013 with a bang!
The Budweiser Made in America Festival 2013 was jampacked with highlights from some of the most iconic artists of the age, as well as some of the best up-and-coming stars and the hidden talent you'd be a fool to have missed.
Taking place over August 31st and September 1st in Philadelphia, the Saturday kicked things off with some impressive acts. Feisty California sisters Haim performed early on in the afternoon with a thoroughly entertaining set, in terms of both music and audience interaction, on the Liberty Stage where other must-see artists such as Deadmau5, 2 Chainz and triple BRIT winning Emeli Sande also thrilled the crowd. The Freedom Stage saw the likes of Rudimental further establish their place in the hearts of a large proportion of festival goers, while the Skate Park Stage saw much smaller bands such as Ohio group Cloud Nothings and New Jersey D&B duo Brick & Mortar get the ultimate chance to showcase their talents. The main Rocky Stage was, of course, the real crowd bringer, with Beyonce headlining and Phoenix and Imagine Dragons delivering the uttermost electrifying rock shows of the night.

2 Chainz: One Of Eleven Tour Bus Arrests.
On Wednesday night (21st Aug), 2 Chainz had performed at Chesapeake Energy Arena with fellow rappers Lil Wayne and T.I. It is not known yet whether the others were with 2 Chainz, AKA Tauheed Epps, when the bus was pulled over just after midnight on Thursday. The officer reportedly suspected that there were illegal drugs on the bus but the driver is said to have locked all the doors and refused police entry with all passengers also refusing to leave the vehicle.

You can see what happened as the rapper got jumped.
Footage has emerged of the men that attempted to rob the rapper 2 Chainz at gun point. You can clearly see the point at which 2 Chainz sees the gunmen and fleas for his life, but he also insists that nothing was stolen from him.
The CCTV footage, obtained by TMZ.com, shows the rapper to be walking down the street when the assailants attack. He was in San Francisco with some friends when the incident occurred, and police told TMZ that he’s had his wallet and his watch stolen – something that the rapper himself denies. “Rule #1 if a rapper gets robbed people usually post items that has been taken. Rings, chains, watch, money etc.” he wrote on Twitter. “Rule #2 if a rapper gets shot he usually go to hospital or dies.” He added to the social networking site, before finishing with “Nobody took Anything from me, i didn't get shot, I'm not in jail, Don't know wut else to tell ya. Sorry if I disappointed anyone, maybe next time. (sic)"

Rapper 2 Chainz was arrested for possession of marijuana this week after a van he and six crew members were traveling in was hauled over by Maryland State Police. Authorities say 2 Chainz had weed on his person and was subsequently arrested, though the rapper formerly known as Tity Boi was processed and released a short time later. However, something pretty interesting happened before he made it back onto the street.
Tweeting shortly after his release, 2 Chainz said, "Locked me up and then Wanted pictures," before linking to an Instagram photograph of himself posing with two officers in what appears to be a police station. The image has been set up and sees the three men smiling back at the camera. When quizzed on the matter, a representative for Maryland State Police told The Urban Daily that he did not know whether 2 Chainz asked the police officers for a photo (unlikely) or vice versa, saying, "We cannot confirm who initiated that at this time."
The rapper and his entourage later got in a Twitter discussion about the arrest, with 2 Chainz seemingly unrepentant, saying, "I work hard and pray even harder, we gone always b good yall...." before adding, "Not to mention my security said it was his and they said, he don't smoke, how da fuk u know? Haha wut a valentines day!!!"

Rapper 2 Chains is set to appear in an upcoming episode of CBS' hit comedy 2 Broke Girls that will air the night after the Grammys on February 11.
The opportunity for humour will be all-over as the world of cupcake making and hip hop come hurtling towards each other in an episode where the rapper will appear as himself, the Hollywood Reporter writes, in an episode that will see the two girls (Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs) getting shipped over to the Grammy's by a record executive that has fallen for Max (Dennings).
The episode will see Max and Caroline rubbing shoulders with the 'Birthday Song' hit-maker as they fly (a first for Max) from east to west coast for the awards show. The show will air on CBS, Monday 11 Feb. at 8/9c.

Kanye West has finally broken his silence over his new mixtape, Cruel Summer. The notoriously media-shy West has, until now, left it up to some of the other stars on the compilation to spread the world about this week’ album release. Now, though, Kanye himself is appearing in a black and white interview clip, hosted on YouTube. Cruel Summer features not only Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music crew, but also the likes of Jay-Z, R. Kelly, 2 Chainz, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah. “This isn't the beginning of the conversation; this isn't the end of the conversation, explains West. It's our offering as a collective of a sonic snapshot of what's happening right now 2012, this Cruel Summer.”
Explaining how the album came together, he explained “we started out getting everyone in the lab together… one track might have thirty people’s opinions on it. It’s not just about a tracklist and a name. It’s about the communal style of work.” He also explained that the artwork to Cruel Summer played a vital part in shaping its sound, He would have the artwork in front of him whilst he recorded the tracks and would ask himself “does this album sound like the artwork looks?”
A few snippets of Cruel Summer had already been leaked before it was even released. And much had been made of some of Kanye’s lyrics, especially those that are about his new girlfriend Kim Kardashian. One choice rhyme from Kanye references Kim’s notorious sex tape: “Eat breakfast at Gucci. My girl a superstar all from a home movie.” Stay classy, yeah Kanye?
