Lil Pump's 'Lil Pump' In Contention For #1 Spot On Album Chart

Other Hip Hop acts are also competing for that top position on the upcoming tally.

(AllHipHop News) It's too early to call a winner in the race for the pole position on next week's album chart. According to HDD, newcomer Lil Pump and music legend Tom Petty are in stiff competition for the #1 spot.

Pump's self-titled project and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers' Greatest Hits are both currently looking to collect between 45,000 and 50,000 units. Petty has seen a resurgence in sales after his death on October 2.

NF's Perception, Post Malone's Stoney, Lil Uzi Vert's Luv Is Rage 2, and A Boogie With Da Hoodie's The Bigger Artist are all apparently in contention for #1 as well. So far, 2017 has seen 10 Hip Hop albums reach the pinnacle of the Billboard 200 chart.
