wiz-khalifa-blacc-hollywood640With his 5th studio album, Wiz Khalifa has taken the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 with Blacc Hollywood. This is his first album to rank in the #1 spot. His debut, Show and Prove (2006), didn’t rank on any charts and his sophomore album Deal or No Deal (2009) debuted at #25 on Top R&B Hip/Hop Albums and #10 on Top Rap Albums. His first taste of global commercial success came with the success of Rolling Papers (2011) which debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 selling 197,000 copies in its first week and spawned hits: ‘Black and Yellow’, ‘Roll Up’, ‘On My Level’, and No Sleep’. His last album, O.N.I.F.C. (2012) became his second album to rank #2 on the Billboard 200 selling 148,000 in its first week.
