Rvssian on Billboard album chart
Producer Tarik 'Rvssian' Johnston is featured on the number-two album in America, the debut from rapper Kevin Gates' 'Islah'.
Johnson produced The Truth, released as the third single from the album late last year.
Islah debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 album chart, number two on the R&B Hip Hop album chart, and number one on the Rap Album chart. The album posted first-week sales of more than 112, 000 copies.
"I take it as a great accomplishment, as a Jamaican and also as a music producer, because it is out of my box as far as the genre is concerned," Rvssian said.
The album debuted right behind ANTI from Barbados-born singer Rihanna. Islah contains 15 tracks including Billboard charting singles Really Really and 2 Phones.
The album is a joint release by Bread Winners Association/Dead Game Records. It is distributed by Atlantic Records.
Rvssian recently signed Belizean singer King Ko$a to his Head Concussion label. His first single, Type of Girl featuring Gates, is to be released today. The music video will premiere on worldstarhiphop.com
