Gucci Mane — HipHopDX’s Hardest Working Artists 2017 — has joined an elite Billboard club thanks to his latest chart feat.
According to Billboard, with the debut El Gato: The Human Glacier at #9 on the Top Rap Albums chart, Gucci landed his 18th Top 10 on that specific chart, tying The East Atlanta Santa with E-40 and Tech N9ne.
Guwop’s Trap House LP, released in 2005, was the first album from the rapper to enter into Top 10 territory on the Top Rap Albums chart.
In 2009, Gucci landed the #1 spot on the Top Rap Albums chart with The State vs. Radric Davis.
Although Gucci, Tech and E-40 are all tied with 18 Top 10 albums, several other rappers are only a handful albums away from making the cut.
JAY-Z is the closest with 12 Top 10 albums on the Top Rap Albums chart. Boosie BadAzz, DJ Khaled, Pitbull and The Game all come in closely behind at 11.
