(J. Cole on Born Sinner's success)
By Brenna Ehrlich
J. Cole, Wale, Kanye West and Mac Miller have a lot to celebrate, having all released chart-topping records this summer. Friday (July 12), however, they can pop some bottles and clap each other on the backs, as their combined success has made history. Yup, this week marks the first time in the Billboard 200 chart history that rap albums have scored the top three spots for three successive weeks.
Billboard reports that J. Cole's Born Sinner came in at number one this week, closely followed by Wale's The Gifted and Kanye West's Yeezus. Cole climbed up a notch this week with his record, which dropped on June 18. The previous week he came in at number 2, with Wale holding down number 1 and West at number 3.
West was riding high the week before that at number 1, and Mac Miller was hanging in there at number three with Watching Movies With the Sound Off. Cole sat pretty at number 2.
This is the first time three rap album
