The album re-entered the chart with 66,000 equivalent album units, according to Billboard. The album peaked at no. 4 when it debuted last March.

It was recently announced that Hussle's memorial service will be held this Thursday at the Staples Center.

Eric Holder, the man accused of shooting the rapper and two others in front of The Marathon Clothing Store, has been charged with one count of murder and two counts of attempted murder. He pleaded not guilty during a court appearance on Thursday.
