Lupe Fiasco’s First-Week Sales Predictions

Lupe Fiasco went through hell to secure the release of his last album, Lasers. Protests, pleas and pop singles later, Lupe’s third album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, selling 204,000 units in its first week. Now, with Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album, Pt. 1, he doesn’t have the mainstream push that he did last time around, but the singles released leading up to the album seemed to satiate his base. Will his dedicated fans come out in the numbers that they did last time around? The XXL staff predicts.

Carl Chery —112,000
