As predicted, ScHoolboy Q ‘s major label debut Oxymoron bows at #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, with sales of 139,000 copies this week.

As the South Central L.A. rapper’s first in a joint-venture deal with Interscope Records, the new album is also the first #1 for Top Dawg Entertainment, which previously reached #2 with Kendrick Lamar ‘s good kid, m.A.A.D city in 2012.

The success of Oxymoron instantly gives the rapper his best-selling album, having previously charted with two independently released sets — Setbacks in 2011 and Habits & Contradictions in 2012. They have sold 17,000 and 48,000, respectively.

Oxymoron also serves as the largest debut for a rap album since Eminem ‘s #1 debuting The Marshall Mathers LP 2, which sold 792,000 copies in the week ending November 10, 2013.
