“Racks In The Middle” marked the last single Nipsey released while he was living. Its leap on the chart is largely due to streaming numbers which increased by 44% this week. Additionally, it jumped from 14 to 7 on the Rap Streaming Songs chart.
What’s even more impressive is that “Racks” has leaped into the top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song is currently sitting at #26 after sitting at #44. It’s also in the top 10 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop songs.
While the song’s been doing well on the charts, his debut studio album, Victory Lap has maintained a position in the top 10 of the Billboard 200. The rapper’s album is currently sitting at #3 after moving 63K units that week. Following the rapper’s death, Victory Lap re-entered the Billboard 200 at #2 while four other projects of his — Slauson Boy, Crenshaw, The Marathon, and Mailbox Money — made their way on the chart for the first time ever.
