Nas’ “NASIR” album debuts at 5 on this week’s Billboard 200.

One of the tracks meanwhile earns a spot on the Billboard Hot 100. Two other start on the Bubbling Under Hot 100.

“Cops Shot The Kid (featuring Kanye West),” the top performer, earns #96 on this week’s edition of the Billboard Hot 100.

“Not For Radio (featuring Puff Daddy & 070 Shake)” and “Adam & Eve (featuring The-Dream)” debut on the Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100. The former takes #5, while the latter takes #18.

The Bubbling Under Hot 100 ranks the Top 25 songs that have yet to appear on the Hot 100.

Both charts rank songs based on activity from sales, streams and radio airplay. In the case of the “NASIR” songs, streams are the driving force.
