Roll up, light up and smoke one to celebrate Taylors!
The numbers are in and according to HDD, Wiz Khalifa can celebrate his first #1 album on the charts.
In it’s first week, ‘Blacc Hollywood‘ moved 85,475 units, easily taking the top spot over the Guardians Of The Galaxy soundtrack, which pushed just over 64k copies.
While this is his first #1, the sales for ‘Blacc Hollywood’ are considerably less than what Wiz sold with his first two albums. Previously, Wiz sold 148,000 albums during the opening week with ‘O.N.I.F.C.’ and 197,000 copies of ‘Rolling Papers’ moved during its first week.
With it getting harder to sale albums every year, this is actually a very high sales number for a hiphop album. Sure less were sold, but having a #1 is sooo nice just for the fact you can say “Wiz Khalifa has the #1 album in the country”.
Congrats to Wiz, Atlantic, Rostrum, Taylor Gang and all others involved. Toast to this amazing accomplishment!

Last night, Wiz Khalifa’s ‘Under The Influence’ tour took to the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, CA near San Jose, when tragedy struck.
According to TMZ, a gunman shot and killed an individual backstage at Wiz Khalifa’s show. Reports show that the victim was shot and hit at least 5 times.
An eyewitness tells TMZ that the gunman and victim were arguing backstage before shots were fired. At the time of the tragedy, Wiz was still on stage and his show was coming to a close.
Cops held everyone that was backstage for 3-4 hours where most were interviewed. Police do not believe that the shooter or victim had any connections to Wiz.
The shooter is still on the loose.
