    TGJ doesnt know hip hop. they stan for young money which says it all really.
    im excited to buy Azealia’s album, shes doing big things for a 21 year old!

    • PSA (FAF) January 12, 2013

      #Enough said!

      • the real xoxo January 12, 2013

        umm no its calling having an opinion.

      • the real xoxo January 12, 2013

        Azealia’s a flop? She’s only 21 and has already had a major hit and created a big buzz.
        When Nicki was 21 she was skint, working in red lobster, watching Lil Kim’s “Crush on You” video on repeat while eating ice cream.

    • F****** Hairy (Lana & Gaga schoolin’ you) January 12, 2013

      Why you pressed? At least Nicki writes her own ish unlike Riherpes.

  3. COLE January 12, 2013

    So… When Rita hits the top 10, she is PRAISED!!!

    When Nicki hits the top 20, she is PRAISED!!!

    When Azealia hits the top 30, she is PRAISED!!!

    But when Rihanna hits the number 2 position – IT IS A FLOP!!!

    Oh man, SCAMantha anf his DELUSIONS.


    • @Taimiicel January 12, 2013

      oh plz b****** this isn’t where s*** peaked
      its where its sitting looking cute
      and rap charts different to pop hence why Rihanna is compared to queens like Beyonce, Adele and Britney….

      • COLE January 12, 2013

        Oh… Eat my Pet Dogs’ P**** B****!!!

        No-one asked for your funky-ass opinion.

        DUMB H**!!!


    • @Taimiicel January 12, 2013

      you people talk a lot of s***…

      negative b****

      this aint a rih post so why you looking for sympathy

      • PSA (FAF) January 12, 2013

        Thank u @Tamiicel !

        Their delusions are thick !

        they wanna compare Nicki to Rihanna when its convenient FOR THEM ! Then call her a flop, but then still compare her to R****, dont that make her a flop, too?

  4. Monstarebel (HoneyChildPlease Mothered This H**) January 12, 2013

    Angel haze?? is that a drug?

    • LTM January 12, 2013

      That shade is tired sis

  5. Music Soul Harmony January 12, 2013

    Rihanna is an international superstar so I guess that’s why ppl don’t expect average sales from her….where as nicki well maybe it’s a different reaction coming from a rapper when she tops anything…not a lot of the female rappers have really been in her league as of lately.

    • the real xoxo January 12, 2013

      if you are going to class Nicki as a rapper, then why arent you classing ke$ha as a rapper aswell?
      by your logic, “tik tok” is the highest charting female rap single of this decade.

  6. @Taimiicel January 12, 2013

    queen nicki dominating as usual sitting pretty of course…


    • PSA (FAF) January 12, 2013

      QUEEEEEEN ! <3

  7. Kesha’s V***** January 12, 2013

    Sam and her people dislike rihanna so much but still have the time to make post about her

  8. PSA (FAF) January 12, 2013

    Yassssssssss for 3 yr old albums still charting! Get that cheque & those royalties, sis <3 Onika

  9. Chris January 12, 2013

    I cannot with this story… Dead.
    Uk hip hop sells NOTHING. Leona got into the top 200 with like 600 copies….. Angel haze has never charted go figure the maths. Don’t bother stanning for nikki she’s probably selling about 1000 copies a week – its the UK! Awful reporting as usual

    • Truth (Number 1 Nicki Stan) January 12, 2013

      are you charting anywhere b****?

      • WTF January 12, 2013

        Well no because i’m not a singer – i decided to get an education and a job both of which have been very successful. Not everything revolves around popular culture and autotune…then again you wouldn’t understand that being a braindead nicki minaj fan who worships her success instead of carving out your own path. Id give you SOME credit if the music was actually worth it but lets face it the stuff she sings is a heap of money making trash – she knows it, we know it, we all know it! good luck with that “b****”

  10. F****** Hairy (Lana & Gaga schoolin’ you) January 12, 2013

    Good for Nicki and Azealia Banks.
    Love these two.

  11. Music Soul Harmony January 12, 2013

    Because Kesha has not made an impact on the urban community since the beginning of her career nor has she made it a goal to pursue rap seriously as her career even tho she may have some small raps in her music. And I’ve never heard her spit like nicki did back in her mixtapes. How many blacks really like Kesha??? Exactly.

    • LTM January 12, 2013

      You dont need black fans to be hip-hop. Ke$ha’s Sleazy>>>>90% of Nicki’s raps

    • the real xoxo January 12, 2013

      fair enough, but i dont want to see s*** saying “nicki minaj broke female rap records with starships and pound the alarm” because they are no different to ke$has music.

  12. ,. January 12, 2013

    i see you kayne and Nicki.

  13. LTM January 12, 2013

    Congrats to Angel Haze! I hope she catches on in the U.K

  14. Career Ender January 12, 2013

    I’m here for Nicki Minaj’s slayage

  15. Career Ender January 12, 2013

    Before I exits

    @FAF you are my fav Barb!

    Keep dragging!

  16. Nichole January 12, 2013

    I can’t @ Samantha, and co posting these irrelevant chart positions.

    In the meantime, Scream and Shout is currently #1 on the overall UK iTunes chart…y’know…the one that is actually RELEVANT, and people actually CARE about? Stay pressed, girl.

  17. Slayty Perry January 12, 2013

    Wow, Ive been following Miss Haze for awhile now and I never thought I’d see her on the iTunes chart at #23. Congrats to her, the beef with Banks is the best thing thats happened for her. It was more effective than the BET Hip-Hop Awards cypher. Her New York EP slays, I recommend it to anyone looking for fresh new female MC talent. She has potential to be huge

    • WTF January 12, 2013

      Calm down boo its number 23 on the itunes uk hip hop chart, thats like 50 copies sold

  18. QUEEN MINAJ January 12, 2013

    YAS b******
    im slaying and you still think im a flop lol <3

  19. SlayDeleAdkins January 12, 2013

    Dont no why ppl are getting excited about angel haze charting at #23! LOOOL! DEAD! She’ll be of the chart by next week!

  20. Lea January 13, 2013

    Congrats for what? For inventing a beef based on nothing to get a publicity stunt?? She should be ashamed of her self-hating too!
