Despite Pantha Du Prince’s electronica being the highest entry, this was another strong week for hip-hop, with Meek Mill; Mr. Muthafuckin’ Exquire and A$ap Rocky previewing new works, as well as the Wu-Tang Clan getting back together in the soundtrack of RZA‘s first film directorial effort, “The Man With The Iron Fist”.
