Since its debut last month, CLB has sat atop the Billboard 200 chart for three weeks, but is presently just below it.
Kentrell is currently at No. 2 in its fourth week. Doja Cat’s, Morgan Wallen’s, The Kid Laroi’s, Billie Eilish’s, and Rod Wave’s albums are also in the top ten.
The rapper is currently in prison for possession of a firearm and possessing a firearm that was not registered to him. His legion of fans and memes of “YoungBoy better” have been circulating on social media, helping his new album achieve chart success despite the lack of promotion prior to its release.

Justin Bieber x Palms Premium
The Justin Bieber x Palms pre-rolls drop today! Justin Bieber has officially made his entrance into the cannabis sector. The California-based company Palms is co-founded by Noah Annes and Tyler Breton. The pre-rolled joints are now available for $50 USD at dispensaries across four states: California, Nevada, Massachusetts, and Florida.
Bloomberg reports (as per a statement by Bieber),
“I’m a fan of Palms and what they are doing by making cannabis approachable and helping to destigmatize it –- especially for the many people who find it helpful for their mental health.”
The new, limited-edition line of pre-rolled joints is inspired by Bieber’s hit song “Peaches.”
“He Smokes Blunts”
The singer opens up in an episode of last year’s YouTube docuseries Seasons about his own substance use. Page Six reports Bieber as spending over $1,000 during a visit to Wonderbrett’s Los Angeles flagship store in July. Wonderbrett co-founder Brett Feldman says,
“He was very interested in cannabis and how beneficial it is. Loves how the stigma is changing. And he smokes blunts.”
Feldman’s comments appear to reference Bieber’s interest in the cannabis industry; which has culminated in his relationship with Palms.
Each pack includes a complimentary PEACHES BIC lighter. The Last Prisoner Project and Veterans Walk and Talk will also receive a portion of the revenue. Veterans Walk and Talk advocates for cannabis as a form of natural medicine. The Last Prisoner Project focuses on cannabis criminal justice reform by supporting individuals and families impacted by cannabis convictions.
A post on Palms’ Instagram states,
Introducing Peaches Pre-Rolls🍑🌴🍑Our collaboration with @justinbieber! This limited edition line of single strain, indoor flower pre-rolls is rolling out in CA, NV, MA & FL. Our goal is to make cannabis more approachable and help destigmatize its use. Peaches is proud to support some great causes including @lastprisonerproject, @veteranswalkandtalk and @eazeMomentum Accelerator. #peachesbypalms
Seven 0.5 gramme PEACHES pre-rolls make up the limited-edition product. The product echoes Justin Bieber’s recent hit song “Peaches,” which he co-wrote with Giveon and Daniel Caesar.

The track is set to appear on Wale’s seventh full-length album, “Folarin II”. Set for release on October 22, it includes 16 tracks, including “Down South,” a duet with Maxo Kream and Yella Beezy.
Dr. Martens x Herschel Supply Co.
Herschel Supply is releasing a brand new collaboration with Dr. Martens. The Combs II boot and Reeder shoe have been reworked and its true English subculture meets Pacific Northwest.
The Combs II Herschel boot and Reeder Herschel shoe both include characteristic black eyelets and Dr. Martens’ iconic yellow welt stitching are the result.
Both pairs appear in black, with a weather-resistant CORDURA Ballistic nylon and WP leather top. For added comfort, they include fluorescent tongue webbing, brushed silver lace hooks, black and white braided laces and smoke tract outsoles.
The pairs also feature a red AirWair heel loop and black Herschel tab. Both pairs feature co-branded insoles, arriving in a custom box which features Herschel Supply’s signature red and navy branding.
