Nipsey Hussle continues to make moves on the Billboard charts following his tragic death. The last single he released while alive, "Racks In The Middle," has secured a spot in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot Rap Songs, according to Billboard. The single, which features Roddy Ricch and Hit-Boy, is Nipsey's first single to enter the top 10 on the Billboard Hot Rap Songs chart. The song jumped six positions from #15 to #9. "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 Laphas maintained a position in the top 10 of the Billboard 200. The rapper's album is currently sitting at #3 after moving 63Kunits 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.
