Sales Predictions: Fabolous’s Loso’s Way

We’ve sure seen some interesting numbers this year. Jadakiss managed to sell 134k without a big single, Ross who seemingly had the Def Jam building behind him and the album of his career couldn’t eclipse his previous first week numbers and Maxwell came out of his cave to do career numbers.

So what is a guy like Fabolous likely to sell. I personally like “Throw It In The Bag” (although the remix is better), but I think I may be alone in that department. People are aware that Loso’s Way is coming out, but is he actually buzzing. We’ll know in a week when the first week numbers come out. As always, XXL staffers tried predicting first week sales. Read below.

Jackpot: 95k
Jesse: 100k
Travis: 80k
JFK: 110k
Clovito: 30k
Rob the Music Ed: 85k
Matt Barone: 85k
Miss One: 60k
MikeD: 75k
Vanessa: 74k

      I FOUND THIS IN AN ARTICLE…I BELIEVE IT WAS POSTED A FEW DAYS AGO

      The federal government decided to raise the minimum wage, and it supersedes Florida’s old rate. So beginning today, the minimum wage in the Sunshine State rises four cents. That’s a total of $7.25 an hour.

      If you work 40 hours a week for 50 weeks a year, that increase comes out to an even $80 a year. Which means you can afford the first two seasons of Flava Of Love on DVD or a complete extra remote for your Wii. Every little cent helps though.

      BLLLOOOOOCCCKKKKKKK BIIITTTCCCHHHHHH!!!!!!

        Looking for a man who’s looking for me? Nigga, please AGAIN.

        Lets clear the air. Gas station is the side hustle and I get $12.55/hr, fool. Main hustle is tutoring, nigga. Thats right, I’m 22 and a nigga tutor.

        Block, if you ever get the chance to taste pussy and make the mistake of making a baby (I’m pretty sure ya sperm count is lower a hamster’s IQ), when he grows up to be the retard the doctors told you it’d be, maybe you can send his slow ass over to me for a private session. Granted there aint no real money in NC, I’ll discount you and only take half your Food Stamps…

        $yk, whats good, homey? I see it only takes one verbal beatdown to gain respect from niggaz. COMMISSION!!!

          Ranga what up! It’s sooooo hot I’m in the water! Over here it gets hotter like 4-6 pm, not like the east where noon to 2 is the hottest.

          What up, $yk?

          Again to, *BLOCK*… let me say this where you can understand. Those hella hours I put in are only on the weekends which are the only days I work because AS a tutor, my policy is to let these kids have their weekends to themselves before I grind it out with them for the week.

          As far as better things, pimpin, thats why I attend college. My degree is for a Bachelor’s in Information Technology & Networking @ Kaplan University (that online shit, I hate campuses), but since I’ve only been in school since December the tutoring and Shell shit is what I do. Far as Shell, I dont gotta work there… I just like working there, killin time, eating and drinking EVERYTHING and fuckin with customers and flirtin wit hoes.

          Now, man to man, I aint gotta problem with you, but NC or SC, I stand by what I said about no money being out there. Just my opinion…

          Anyways, being from Miami and shit, we can crack jokes AAAAALLLL DAY. Cuz I am sure, there ain’t no problems… Chuuuch.

    “I bet Rosa Parks wud sit ha azz in this backseat” LMAOOO dat line still crack me up. I looked at the tracklisting for this album and Fab only has 5 solo songs out of 17 tracks?? If only his albums were like his mixtapes. But I know hes tryna move units so i say 90k for his 1st wk sells. Im coppin it jus off dat Rosa Parks line lol

    • BIGNAT

      that is why i don’t like fab albums he always got everybody on it. it is hard to make a classic with help unless you have a group. fab no more that what jada did no less that 80k.

    How fabulous eats won’t make me shit.

    Give me good music and fuck their sales and their couch.

    • sb

      lol!!!!!!!

  • nicholasdelorejo

    I’m willing to say fab is going to do around 175-200K. And that’s without the so called purchases from Def Jam. Remember folks fab might be one of the best rappers in making banging tracks on an album. Also fab’s fan base is made up primarily of consumers that don’t give a shit about street cred or what hype campaign that he has for this album. Having a female fan base isn’t actually a bad thing just as long as you make tracks to satify their interest. They won’t leave you if somebody calls out some bullshit you were selling (no Ricky Ross). Like Chris Rock said, as long as the beat is banging women don’t give a fuck about the rapper’s status in hip hop.

    Also right now Fab might be the only rapper out that the ladies can turn thanks to the Oprah lobbyist calling Nelly out for the Tip drill vid, wayne stuck on becoming a rock star, and Chris Brown (I know he’s not a rapper but based on his music and style he’s in the same category as a rapper-singing T-pain) becoming our genration’s Ike Turner. So I don’t think fab’s in any danger of flopping. Hell he might even reach gold in a month or so. It’s still better than a lot of other rappers. Damn this post is long.
