Rick Ross - Mastermind

Rick Ross’ “Mastermind” Is Projected To Be The #1 Album Next Week

(AllHipHop News) Through all the setback and false starts, Rick Ross is expected to score his fifth #1 album next Tuesday.

According to Hits Daily Double, Ross’ sixth studio album, Mastermind is projected to sell between 145,000-160,000. That would be a 70,000-55,000 drop from the first week sales of his previous album, 2012’s God Forgives, I Don’t and potentially the lowest first week sales of his entire career.

Pharrrell as well experienced disappointing sales as his new album G I R L is expected to sell between 85,000-95,000 in its first week. Pharrell’s last solo album, 2006’s In My Mind sold over 140,000 copies in its first week.

These projections are subject to change and will be updated as more information is made available.

  • Charismatic eNegro Jef Vinson

    They’ll brag about it being the #1 album but unless they go out and buy up the album this is a flop.

  • i’mreloaded!

    Mastermind is dope. I don’t care who hates on it. Good album.

    • Jayson C Williams

      My man is a rapper we both don’t like Ross and he was like yo homie did his thing so ima support Ross and listen too it entirely

      • justmathoughts

        not a big ross fan either but id be lying if i said the album wasnt good at its worst

      • i’mreloaded!

        Fo sho. You won’t be disappointed bro.

  • Live Well

    I gotta kinda tip my hat to Rick Ross. He broke every code in Hip Hop and got rewarded for it.

    • andone

      u can thank diddy and bey z for that, SMH!

      • Live Well

        No doubt.

    • Ralph Diaz

      That’s why he gets so much hate but the game has changed so so we got to accept that!

      • Live Well

        They need to come up with a new name for that kinda game. It surely ain’t Hip Hop.

  • SOHO

    Basically Ross has been all over the radio, collaborations like crazy, controversy with 50 and his Travon lyrics, squashed the beef with Jeezy, All over TV just to sell as many records as Schoolboy Q? lmbo he flopped

    • Notmyname

      Why are you giving out the secret .Now everyone will do it..

    ^^^this is proof AHH was paid for the ft. now thats mastermind lol

  • Dadon850

    He releases albums when there is no competition. That’s the slick way to be number one. Fat Willie just cannot sell albums but he has been forced down our throats for years.

    • Darrell ‘gluv’ Glover

      well pharrell sounds like competition to me, especially how large the song “happy” is. but i am more surprised by his sales thou.

  • Notmyname

    Rick Ross makes great music .Most of you talking negative are just sheep who want to believe in something .Believe in yourself and stop jacking off to 50

  • Ralph Diaz

    Rick has other people make great music for him. The beats and the feat. make Mastermind good but the lyrics are the same old.

  • moneyman

    Mastermind is a good album so I can’t hate on Ross for this one.
