(AllHipHop News) Rick Ross’ opening week sales of his latest album Mastermind were enough to give the MMG rapper his fifth number one album in his career. According to HitsDailyDouble, after coming out the gate with around 180,000 copies sold, Mastermind‘s second week numbers are predicted to be between 40,000 and 50,000 units.
The most high-profile rap album debuting this week is Young Money’s Rise of an Empire. The compilation LP featuring the label’s stars like Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Drake, and Tyga is looking at first week sales around 27,000 – 30,000. Those numbers will likely place Rise in the 7th spot on the album chart.
Pharrell’s G I R L is on pace for the fourth position with sales around 40,000, and Schoolboy Q’s Oxymoron is looking at another 15 – 17 thousand units sold this week to remain in the top 20.
