Tyga’s First-Week Sales Predictions

Young Money/Cash Money soldier, Tyga’s sophomore LP Careless World: Rise of the Last King, officially hit stores yesterday (February 20). Despite reports that it was recalled due to an uncleared sample, everything has since been taken care. The XL rated disc features super star appearances from Nas, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Drake, Wale, Chris Brown, Robin Thicke, J. Cole and much, much more. The question is, will the popularity of his hit, “Rack City,” his YMCMB affiliation and the LP’s all-star lineup translate into sales? The XXL staff weighs in with their first-week sales projections. Stay tuned to XXLMag.com next Wednesday (February 29) for the official Nielsen SoundScan results.—XXL Staff (@XXLStaff)

      Do you expect anything huge? I only know one person who even knows who Tyga is, and that’s because I have thrown a song or two of his on CDS before.
