I believe it’s safe to say we’re definitely experiencing a hip hop reign of sorts on the Gospel sales chart. This week we see hip hop heavyweight Da’ T.R.U.T.H. land at #2 with his new LP, “Love, Hope & War“! Big congrats to him! While Lecrae‘s latest LP, “Gravity” sits pretty at #5! The christian hip hop genre continues to win!
