2 Chainz’s debut record “Based On a T.R.U. Story,” in excess of the album’s actual quality rules to No. 1 on the U.S. album chart and also on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 147000 copies in its first week – according to sources.

The one-half of hip hop duo Playaz Circle is the third act this year who puts his debut studio effort at number 1 on the chart. One Direction did so with “Up All Night” in late March, followed by Jack White with “Blunderbuss” in mid-May.

“Now 43″ collection is got down to number 2 with extra 75,000 copies. Whereas, the “God Forgives, I Don’t” by Rick Ross also dropped one position to number 3, selling 43,000 copies.  Meanwhile, Maroon 5’s “Overexposed” sees a 50 per cent rise in the sales, boosted by Amazon MP3. The band’s album now sits at number 5 with 36,000 copies.

The other newcomers in the Top 10 position this week are “Insane Clown Posse” and “Yellowcard”. The greasepaint rap duo’s “The Mighty Death Pop” enters the chart at number 4 place with 41,000 copies, while the veteran pop punk act’s “Southern Air” comes in at number 10 spot with 23,000 copies.
