Miami’s hometown hero Rick Ross will most likely pop champagne today upon hearing news that his third album, Deeper Than Rap—an effort peppered with chill-out anthems—hit the top of the Billboard 200 at No. 1.

The Slip-N-Slide/Def Jam release shifted 158,000 units in its first week, according to Billboard. The Bawse was about 40,000 shy of topping his last album, 2008’s Trilla, which moved 198,000 copies. His first disc, 2006’s Port of Miami, debuted with 187,000. Deeper Than Rap is Ross’ third consecutive No. 1 album.

Freshman MC Asher Roth didn’t score top accolades, but he did break the charts at No. 5 with his debut effort, Asleep in the Bread Aisle. Thanks to the album’s lead single, “I Love College,” the Pennsylvania native crashed the charts with 65,000 copies.

Bad Boy fivesome Day26’s Forever in a Day slipped six spots to No. 8, while Jadakiss’ The Last Kiss fell four positions to No. 10.
