Rapper Big Sean blocks Kid Rock path to this weeks no.1 album.

Rapper Big Sean topped the weekly U.S. Billboard 200 album chart on Wednesday for the first time, beating out rocker Kid Rock.
Big Sean's "Dark Sky Paradise" sold 139,000 album copies, 218,000 songs and was streamed more than 17 million times, tallying 172,000 total units in its debut on the chart, according to figures from Nielsen SoundScan.

The only other new entry in the top ten of the Billboard 200 chart, which tallies album sales, song sales (10 songs equal one album) and streaming activity (1,500 streams equal one album), was "Fan of a Fan: The Album," by rappers Chris Brown and Tyga at No. 7, selling 67,000 units.
Last week's chart-toppers, alt-rockers Imagine Dragons' "Smoke + Mirrors," dropped to No. 9 this week.

Kid Rock too busy worrying about Beyonce when he should've been more focused on selling his flop music! I hate hypocrites, how's he gonna call out someone for not having any classic songs when he himself has NO recognizable songs period! I couldn't name a kid rock song even if my life depended on it
