Hip Hop star Kanye West has scored his eighth consecutive number one album on the Billboard 200 chart with his latest album “Ye,” even after many critics said his open support of Donald Trump would have a negative effect on his album sales.
According to Billboard West “ties Eminem for the second-most No. 1 albums among hip-hop acts in the history of the chart.”
“Only JAY-Z is ahead of them, as he owns 14 chart-toppers,” Billboard explained, adding that, “Among all acts, The Beatles have the most No. 1s, with 19.”

Television host Dr. Phil accused West of empowering “white supremacists,” while actress Rosie O’Donnell called the Grammy-winner a “fucking moron.”
Rapper Snoop Dogg claimed West had turned “all white,” while Marvel Studios director James Gunn, musician John Legend, actor Samuel Jackson, and director Jordan Peele also attacked West.
“Obama was in office for eight years and nothing in Chicago changed,” declared West on Twitter in April, before later adding, “Obama was our opioids. It made us feel like everything was good.”
