I dont see why everybody gotta turn sh*t into a competition. What does him selling this many records have to do with the whole South winning? LMAO Either way Weezy is a humble dude and I like him. He deserves the sales he's gonna reach in the first week. I hope his joint sells crazy records so we can get off that bullsh*t and get back to Hip Hop running things again. We need more like it.

In Weezy we trust.

The music industry finally has something to shout about.

Thanks to an unprecedented pre-release blitz and the smash single, "Lollipop," Lil Wayne’s eagerly awaited Cash Money/Universal Motown release Tha Carter III is on target to sell more than 900k albums this week, almost twice as much as the previous record-holder, Mariah Carey’s E=MC2, which debuted with 475k last April. That’s based on one-day sales reports from beleaguered music retailers grateful for a little hot fun in the summertime.

With brisk foot traffic across the country this Father’s Day weekend, there's no telling how much highter Tha Carter III could go. Not bad for an album which leaked all over the web last week.

It’s the biggest debut week ever for Sylvia Rhone’s Universal Motown, topping Nelly’s total of 714k back in June ’02.

Slip N Slide/Atlantic Tampa rapper Plies’ Definition of Real, which includes guest appearances from Ne-Yo, J. Holiday, Keyshia Cole, Trey Songz, Jamie Foxx and The-Dream, looks to be in the 225-250k area. The prolific hip-hop artist is reportedly about to drop a second disc by the end of the year.

Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo’s band alter ego (with Shay Haley) N.E.R.D. come out with Seeing Sounds, their first album for Interscope, which will sell about 90k, give or take.

Rock crit and Louisville jam band acolytes My Morning Jacket are receiving big buzz for their latest on ATO, Evil Urges, which could do as much as 50k in first-week sales.

It's all about Lil Wayne this week as The Billboard 200 prepares for the arrival of "Tha Carter III." The rapper's new Cash Money/Universal album will easily bow at No. 1 next week, as it leads Nielsen SoundScan's Building Chart, to be released this afternoon (June 11) at 5 p.m. ET.

Unweighted first-day sales of "Tha Carter III" at nine leading accounts through the close of business yesterday (June 10), stood at 423,000. Sources close to the album project "Carter" could shift between 850,000-950,000 in its first full week. That would easily give Wayne the biggest sales week of the year, and the best since Kanye West's "Graduation" started with 957,000 last year.

To compare, "Graduation" saw a first-day Building number of 437,000 from eight accounts, about 3% more than that posted by "Carter."

Billboard estimates the nine merchants who report to Nielsen SoundScan's Building chart -- Trans World Entertainment, Best Buy, Circuit City, iTunes, Starbucks, Borders, Target, Anderson Merchandisers and Handleman Co. -- comprise about 80% of all U.S. album sales.

Starbucks was not part of the Building Chart panel when West's title came to market last Sept. 11.

Despite Tha Carter III leaking on the Internet over a week ago, New Orleans, Louisiana rapper Lil' Wayne is expected to sell between 850,000 and 950,000 albums in his first week sales.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the album is set to surpass both of 2008's highest-selling first week albums, Mariah Carey's E=MC2 and Usher's Here I Stand which sold 463,000 and 433,000.

Executive VP of sales for Universal Motown Republic Group Pat Monaco explained the unexpected number of albums sold and why the leaking is helping rather than hurting Weezy's prospected totals.

"The sales the first few hours were exceeding the rate that the Kanye album sold a year ago," he said. "[Tha Carter III] was one of these records that, because it was so highly anticipated, with the leaks and everything, it caused more people to go out at eight in the morning to buy the CD."

With first week sales looking to possibly beat both Carey and Usher's albums combined, Monaco also explained the impact bootlegging unfinished recordings on mixtapes and Lil' Wayne's non-stop recording habit had on the album.

"[We] were like putting a traditional set-up and street date on a guy that was just nontraditional," he affirmed. "It changed dates, changed titles, changed songs, changed the people that were working on it. But sonically, the record bears out."

If the reports hold true and Lil' Wayne is able to pass Carey, Tha Carter III will not only be the biggest album of the year but will also regain the top spot for a hip-hop artist since Kanye West last September.

As previously reported by SOHH, Tha Carter III was intentionally leaked by various mixtape djs including DJ Chuck T due to negative statements made against them by Weezy.


WTF??? Now this n*gga gon say hes the GOAT because he can sell. Cant believe this f*g outsold Kanye and Usher. These gotta be shipped projections???
