West Coast label, Top Dawg Entertainment, added a number one album to its growing list of accomplishments with ScHoolboy Q’s debut, Oxymoron. This news should be no surprise, as world that the South Central rapper’s LP would nab the top spot on Billboard began circulating last week.

ScHoolboy sold an estimated 138,517 copies of the 15-track project, which features the Kendrick Lamar-assisted “Collard Greens” and “Man of the Year.” That’s a major look for the former XXL Freshman, since his first major label opus released later than expected and none of the aforementioned singles had a major impact.

Early reports had KiD CuDi’s Satellite Flight at number two, but it could drop as low as the four spot behind the Frozen Official Soundtrack and Romeo Santos’ new body of work.

Despite the first week success of K. Dot’s good kid, m.A.A.d city, the critically acclaimed album couldn’t compete with Taylor Swift’s Red.
