Early first week sales projections for Big Sean's "Hall Of Fame", and Juicy J's "Stay Trippy" albums are in.
According to early projections from HDD, Big Sean's new Hall Of Fame album is projected to sell only about 75-85k units this first week. Whereas, Juicy J's new album, Stay Trippy, is looking at moving about 60-65k units. The G.O.O.D. Music rapper struggled with getting a single to blow up, and even though "Beware" is doing pretty well, the campaign was affected in their first week album sales. Sean's numbers look to be similar to his debut album Finally Famous, which moved 87k units.
We'll keep you updated when the officials numbers come in next week. Make sure to cop the albums.
