Joey Bada$$’s debut is slated to sell between 50,000 and 55,000 units according to Hits Daily Double.
Additional considerations for streaming and single song sales brings the Cinematic Music Group rapper’s total album equivalency projection up to 60,000 units.
Meanwhile, Lupe Fiasco’s fifth album is projected to sell between 30,000 and 35,000 units with a sales plus streaming count of up to 40,000.
Either album holds the possibility of becoming the best first-week Hip Hop seller of 2015.
Earlier this month, Rae Sremmurd debuted at #5 with 34,403 albums sold. Nicki Minaj’s Pinkprint was the best selling Hip Hop album of last week with just over 30,000 albums sold.
