Offset released his first solo project this past weekend.
Friday was a pretty great day for hip-hop releases as it was highlighted by entries such as Offset's Father of 4, Gunna's Drip or Drown 2, and Lil Pump's Harverd Dropout. All three albums were expected to be amongst the week's top-selling projects and it seems as though that's going to be the case thanks to the first week projections, courtesy of Complex.
As you would probably expect, Offset is leading the pack and is expected to sell between 77,000 to 82,000 copies. Although, only 3,000 of those copies are album sales. Meanwhile, Gunna, who is quickly rising to prominence, isn't far behind Offset as he is projected to sell between 75,000 and 80,000 copies. It's a pretty good effort for Gunna who wasn't expected to perform so closely with Offset.
As for Lil Pump, he is expected to do between 40,000 to 45,000 in sales. Pump's album features a handful of already released songs including "Butterfly Doors" and "Multi Millionaire" which features Lil Uzi Vert.
One interesting thing to note about the releases this weekend is that none of them are expected to hit the top spot on the Billboard charts. Instead, it appears as though Ariana Grande's project Thank U, Next will ultimately take the top spot.
