Thanks to Roshan for putting this together.

Hip-Hop Music Round-UpThis week's top 5 albums in Rap and R&B, respectively, according to Billboard.com:

Rap:
1. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - The Heist
2. Kendrick Lamar - good Kid, m.A.A.d. City
3. Flo Rida - Wild Ones
4. ASAP Rocky - LongLiveASAP
5. T.I. - Trouble Man

R&B:
1. Rihanna - Unapologetic
2. Alicia Keys - Girl on Fire
3. Michael Bolton - A Tribute to Hittsville USA
4. Charlie Wilson - Love, Charlie
5. Jennifer Lopez - Greatest Hits

(Billboard has separated Rap and R&B, but clearly with the addition of Flo Rida under "Rap," and Michael Bolton under "R&B," they have failed)

5. Drake
4. Nas
