If projections are accurate, Nas’ album Life Is Good will debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
The feat would place Nas elite company. Eminem, by comparison, has six No. 1 albums, including Curtain Call: The Hits, and Music from and Inspired by the Motion Picture 8 Mile. DMX’s first five solo albums debuted at No. 1, while his sixth, Year of the Dog…Again, dropped at No. 2. Jay-Z leads all emcees in the No. 1 album department, scoring 11 of them, including Unfinished Business with R. Kelly and Watch the Throne with Kanye West.
Billboard.com reported the projection, stating that Life Is Good may be the only title to sell over 100,000 this week, with Zac Brown Band’s Uncaged expected to drop to No. 2.
