Gangsta music is alive and well.
Industry forecasters told the site that the new album could push between 150,000 to 160,000 copies by the end of the week. That’s a pretty phenomenal number for the Los Angeles-rapper. It, however, pales in comparison to the first week numbers of Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city album, which sold 240k in its first week.
Behind ScHoolboy is our guy Kid Cudi, who dropped his surprise iTunes-only album Satellite Flight on Tuesday. The project is projected to sell around 90,000 copies. Not too shabby.
Other notable high debuts include Romeo Santos and his Formula, Vol. 2 (which is hovering in the 90,000 sales) and Beck’s Morning Phase, which is at 65k.
Congratz to the homie ScHoolboy Q. Ab-Soul, you up next.
