The Recession is Young Jeezy's third album
US rapper Young Jeezy has topped the US Billboard 200 album chart with his new record The Recession, keeping New Kids on the Block from the top spot.
It is the second time Jeezy has scored a number one after topping the chart in 2006 with The Inspiration.
For the first time in 14 years, the newly reunited New Kids entered the chart with The Block, which made its debut at number two.
The group's last album, Face the Music, peaked at number 37 in 1994.
The Block has given New Kids their best week in the US chart since Step by Step climbed to number one in 1990.
Last week's number two, The Game's Lax, slipped one place and Kid Rock's Rock N Roll Jesus fell to fourth place.
Slipknot's Roadrunner album All Hope Is Gone is at number five in the new chart, followed by The Jonas Brothers' A Little Bit Longer.
