How Many Units Will Jeezy Sell In His First Week?

Was anybody else surprised by Game‘s first week numbers?

The Compton MC sold 238, 382 copies according to Nielsen’s Soundscan. As previously reported, reports initially had him in the top spot until an adjustment put him no.2 behind rock outfit Slipknot. Well, there probably won’t be any mix up with Young Jeezy. Dude will most likely take the no.1 spot and most XXL staffers are willing to bet on it. No, really! We took turns placing bets on The Recession‘s first week numbers. See for yourself.

Nessa: Hey guys! Lots of talk about this week’s Game sales and next week’s Jeezy sales. Wanna make some bets? How much is Jeezy gonna sell next week? And what do we bet? $1 each. Is that cheap? Is this legal?

Light: Ha ha ha! I’ma say 210K.

Trav: Ok that’s it guys. Datwon sets the bet at $210,000.

Rob The Music Ed: I’ma say 300k. I think people are into Jeezy way more than the Game.

Mike D: I’m in on that! 380K (that includes all the albums Def Jam buys)

Light:Fuck talking about the Recession/shit’s depressin‘”- Jay-Z

Rob The Music Ed: I wanted to give Jay a Step Ya Rap Game Up so bad for that one!

SuperFunkalicious Andrea: Who cares if it’s legal, unless someone is an undercover cop. Is anyone?! I say Jeezy wins with 444,000 copies.

Nessa: $1 is the bet not $210,000. Gimme a number.

Gangstarr Girl: Jeezy, 600.

Nessa: When u see me, make it rain, or just hand me ur dollar. We gotta have the winners get something!

Béchamel: Yeah, I was thinking something similar. Jeezy (600K). Jeezy + Game = Lil Wayne

Nessa: Béchamel, want 601k since Starr took 600k?

Chope: I’ll say 550,000.

Trav: I got 555K on Jeezy. “She wants me to get the room, man this bitch cheap (what?)But she role the weed good and she a big freak.”

J-Rod: I’m down for 420,000.

Jackpot: Put me down for 415k.

Here’s a complete list of staff projections.
Rob:  300,000
Light:  210,000
Mike D: 380,000
SuperFunkalicious Andrea: 444,000
Gang Starr Girl: 600,000
Béchamel: 601,000
Chope: 550,000
Trav: 555,000
Nessa: 289,000
Nakedwithsockson.com (PAUSE²): 283,000
Davina: 350,000
Red: 385,000

      • http://www.asdf.com Hey

        The album is garbage, but Jizzy is not THAT bad of a rapper.

        • ko

          He’s not a bad rapper? Then why is his album hot garbage? The standards have become so low in hip hop today.

        • http://xxlmag.com Tre Trilla

          “Man” I dont know what album yall talking bout but that new Jeezy off the Chain, He so hood, and he keep it 100 in the album. Yall like that snap ya finger shit… Go dance then bitches but that good hood street cred music that got all 6 12″ woofers bangin this is it… Game still trying to find hisself that’s whay he keep changing Tats but thats who yall like.

  • DETROIT

    300000, same as plies

    • King B

      Same as plies??? what fucking album are you talkin about??? yo these muthafuckas are over doing it with the 300k 400k and even 500k lol c’mon man that nigga jeezy has a hot song but the album isn’t better than the LAX I say 150,000 first week

      • Rob The Music Ed

        Did we all listen to the same Jeezy album?

        • Pierzy

          Yeah, and it’s not like we’re listening to “The Chronic.” Let’s have some perspective here…

        • EReal

          @Rob

          Does it really matter? I mean really, quality wise, does it matter?

          Exacctttlllyyy…

          Wayne sold a Mili. Garbage goes man.

          400K

        • Rob The Music Ed

          @ Pierzy:
          Of course we arent comparing it to “The Chronic” – that album came out 16 years ago and was one of the greatest albums of all time. And tell me who is making albums of that caliber in 2008?!?

          @ EReal:
          Was Wayne’s album really “garbage?” we just gonna throw that word around huh? Gotta give the dude some credit, he put together a dope project man!

        • Pierzy

          Rob, I understand your point but it’s sort-of what I’m saying too. It’s not on that caliber so asking “Did we all listen to the same Jeezy album?” is interesting to me. It’s not like when you first heard a certified classic.

          Or maybe I’m just getting older and thinking hip-hop is (almost) dead.

      • DETROIT

        his album isn’t better than game’s, but he’s more popular than the game. he was one of the only people to go plat last year, when the game couldn’t.

        • detroit detroit

          yeah true indeed but shit changed since den homie popularity don’t = sales in this case though jeezy should go plat again cuz bullshit sales in this environment i heard it and da flow changed 2 something fresh and funky(is these words still in use) but all at once nah dog shit won’t work but his song wordplay will get played more den any LAX track in da glove game going win a grammy when u listen 2 LAX well me personally it actually felt like i just Landed

    • niggafrommemphis

      FUCK PLIES! Plies wish he was jeezy.All in all,jeezy gonna be close to gold or atleast 400,000.

      • NAWLEDGE

        @niggafrommemphis

        Yeah, I agree. Plies does suck the cock when it comes to lyrics, but hey. The dude is popular

        @Pizery

        I see your point. I dont think Jeezy would ever do an album of that calibur.

        @Rob

        300,000? I dont know fam. Maybe like 13-15,000 less. Gas is expensive nowadays…

  • chad bro chill

    im gonna say 205,000 and 2nd week will be huge drop off maybe 50k

    he has no talent rhymes one syllable words

  • http://AHH Ruste_Juxx

  • Oneofthemyo’s

    Yall niggas bugging talking bout 600,000(this nigga aint doing 50#’s) or even 444,000(he aint doing TIP #’s either)jeezy is a platinum artist, straight he gonna get there as always but I dont see him doing that much better than game I give him between 270,000 and 320,000.

  • http://1290wmcs.com “The Party Killa”

    Im thinking somewhere around 210,000….The T.I’s aren’t going to ship all those like they did Weezy Goldberg! (I dont even listen to that album anymore)

    • Tony Grand$

      ^^^LOL!! That nigga called Wayne “Weezy Goldberg”. Yeah, it does look like she gave birth to that ugmo ass dude.

    • A yow

  • grp03

    then again, i predicted 400k for LAX and was way high. if anything this might be too low though.

  • duubbzz

    Yall have to fire this bum

  • http://freshnessandabove.blogspot.com Malakidagod

    IDK YA IF THE GAME BARELY SQUEEZED THE TOP 10 WITH 200,000 SOMETHING UNITS MAYBE JEEZY WILL DO THE SAME CUZ I THINK BOTH GAME AND JEEZY HAVE GOOD ALBUMS AND BOTH DESERVED 500 K 1ST WEEK ATLEAST BUT THERES A RECESSION REMEMBER? PPL NEED TO STOP LEAKING ALBUMS AND BUY EVEN THO SOMETIMES I DONT MIND DOWNLOADING ALBUMS THAT I FEEL NO EXCITMENT ABOUT

  • http://xxlmag santana

    the recession best album of this yr hands down..i feel he should do waynes numbers.a mill…or 750,000,plus…if u aint got the recession please get it.to hott not to have it=)~

  • http://www.incilin.blogspot.com Incilin

    This reminds me of Snoop (another West coast rapper) dropping the same week as Rick Ross, and Ross surprising us all and outselling Uncle Snoop. I’m guessing if Game can do 250, and Wayne can do a mille, then Jeezy has got to be at like 400,000. Mainly because, as Bol would say, southerners will buy anything.

  • youngjeezy

    Half Mill In 1st week

  • marc

    2 flat

  • gman

    EVEN IF JEEZY SELLS MORE RECORDS THE GAME ALBUM WILL BE BETTER JEZZY CANT FUCK WITH GIZ AME

    • og bobby j

      Giz? like Jiz? Thats does sound about right when talking about the Gayme

  • KLETEWOOD

    I predicted 666,000 for Lil Wayne and I was under.

    I predicted 420,000 for TOS and I was way off.

    I predicted 330,000 for NAS and was almost on.

    I said 300,000 for LAX and I was over.

    I said 75,000 for Ice Cube and was on.

    I predict 222,000 for Young Jeezy.

    Lets ROLL the dice.

  • SOUTHSIDE A-TOWN

    i’ll give my nigga jeezy 350k. he got a pretty strong fanbase. THAAATS RIIIIGHT!

  • x

    is you crazy?

  • http://myspace.com/marko4aoc Marko-V

    This is stupid. Buyin into the notion that 1st week sales are all that matter in a rapper’s career.

  • beezyboy

    It’s scary that the folks from XXL are that out of touch with today’s record industry. Many of them thinkin’ 600K (…!)I love Jeezy, his new album is cool, but his two other records are better. I think he’s gonna do between 200-300.

  • balaramesh

    jeezy has a pretty strong fanbase. he should sell about 300k.

    whether the cd is good or not is the only think that matters.

  • avenger xxl

    Who gives a damn?

    I mean I want the joint to sell a lot so he can get his gwap and all. Cause everyone needs to eat and Jeezy is a cool dude. But should we be discussing sales here. I mean who gives a damn how much he sales. you ass pirates at XXL need to work on telling me if the record sounds good so I am tempted to go buy it and increase sales. Not act like little bitches at a Jonah brothers concert. This pub has severly lost it’s way just as the sauce before it. Step yo game up and stop highering so many posers.
