August 7 [12:00 EDT] -- Bone Thugs-N-Harmony crash Puff Daddy's chart party this week as the rap outfit's "The Art Of War" unseats Puffy's "No Way Out" atop the "Billboard" album chart.
The Thugs' latest effort flew out of record stores in its first week, with more than 390,000 copies of the double CD being sold.
Don't cry for Puffy though... the mogul/producer/rapper slips only one notch to number two, and is still featured on the top two singles in the country ("I'll Be Missing You" with Faith Evans and the Notorious B.I.G.'s "Mo Money Mo Problems").
Puffy continues to be a mainstay at the top of a singles chart that shows virtually no movement next week. The top five spots remain unchanged, and with the only buzz coming from the Spice Girls who enter the chart at number six with "2 Become 1."
The modern rock singles chart is just as dormant, with Sugar Ray ("Fly"), Matchbox 20 ("Push"), and Live ("Turn My Head") holding on to the one, two, and three spots
respectively once again.
