Gucci Mane Projected to Sell 65K in First Week

It seems that Gucci Mane’s latest project, The Appeal: Georgia’s Most Wanted, will be the third highest debut on the charts next week.

According to predictions by HITS Daily Double, the disc, which dropped on September 28, will move between 60,000 and 65,000 units in its first week on shelves. Earlier this week, we reported predictions that Lil Wayne would sell 90,000 digital copies of I Am Not A Human Being, and HDD projects that those numbers could even reach 100,000. Those sales would land Weezy as the second highest debut, behind country act the Zac Brown Band.

Ice Cube’s I Am The West and Lil Boosie’s Incarcerated are each expected to debut on the charts, as well.

The Appeal is Gucci’s third solo album and follows up 2009’s The State vs. Radric Davis. —Adam Fleischer

    Lets see his retard fans explain away this flop, last year it was “Uhhhh, he was locked up, it would have sold more if he was free”

      • blade

        IM A NEW YORK DUDE AND I DON’T WANT TO HEAR AN ALBUM FROM PAPOOSE..BUT GUCCI IS NOT ALL THAT GOOD. IS HIS MUSIC TIMELESS??? NOPE IT’S NOT…PEOPLE ARE BECOMMING STARS OFF OF WHO THEY KNOW NOW AND NOT BECAUSE THEY HAVE TALENT..THAT GOES FOR NORTH AND SOUTH ARTIST.

        • htowns own

          One thing about the south is we don’t give a f*ck about wahy NY thinks about our music. Like Scarface said, NY ain’t never F*ck wit us so you can have “Hip Hop”, the south support the South and that’s all that matters. Southern artist will forever make money in the south, we go to their shows and we buy their sh*t no matter.

    im from the midwest(Minneapolis,MN) and gucci is straight man,we fuck wit gucci hard in the sota.. but my only problem with gucci is that wacka flocka’s buzz is on fire!!! im pretty sure that wacka will sell more than 65,000…how the fuck can you let your artist sell more than all 3 of yours CDs and you the CEO? but look, at the end of the day wacka flocka is gettin gucci more richer because if your artist go gold or platnum,the CEO gets extra money for that.soooo SouthCide Minneapolis minnesota

    poop my fart or fart my poop?

  • swype-matic

    I’m not even a Gucci Mane fan, but was there even buzz for this album??? Wasted, Lemonade, and Spotlight were at least catchy, and had radio play all day everyday. It’s Gucci Time literally sounds like shit, and I haven’t even heard it multiple times a day.

    Oh, Waka Flocka is NOT gonna go gold or platinum, don’t know where that came from.

  • The Decatur Dictator

    65,000 ? That’s 64,999 to many! Dude needs to go to sleep. Dayum!

  • BeerGangsta

    Wack Fucker!! He couldn’t catch a Catfish in a Coffee Cup!! This shit won’t sell more than 10k. Remember Cube and Wayne come out sameday!!

  • shat

    i see a slow return of “real hiphop” or lyrical content, not that strip club music. look who on deck banks, kanye, etc and who just dropped albums that sold EM, DRAKE, even though i dont like the fraud but atleast he can spit a bar.niki is in the same lane as gucci, waka, plies, soulja etc. but soulja will sell more due to his fan base.
    these dude should only make club singles and stay away from albums that is dead, get single deals

    LMFAO!!!!THAT SHIT IS CLASSIC. I ACTUALLY GOT LOVE FOR A FEW NY ARTIST, BUT U MOTHERFUCKERS START TALKING DOWN ON THE SOUTH, THEN i GOT A PROBLEM. WHEN U NIGGAS STOP SUCKIN 50′S DICK SIDEWAYS, AND ACTUALLY PRODUCE ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL NY ARTIST, THEN YALL CAN TALK THAT SHIT. THE FUNNY THING IS, NIGGAS TALKIN BOUT BANKS AND SHIT, AND HIS BEAT FOR BEEMERS, BENZ AND BENTLEY SOUNDS LIKE A SOUTHERN BEAT. GUCCI AND WAKA FLOCKA ARE NOT THE ONLY NIGGAS IN THE SOUTH, SO NIGGAS HATIN CAN SUCK A DICK AND STAY ON THE SOAP BOX. THESE COUNTRY RAP TUNES BITCH!!!WE DON’T WANNA B DOWN WIT YOU FUCK NIGGAS (PIMP C VOICE!!!)

  • August Martian

    Gucci Mane first week numbers will be in the same range as Plies as well as the Nas/Damien Marley album and the new Roots/John Legend album meaning that no one region or style has any domination over the next. Look at your current top rappers and where they’re from: Eminem (Detroit), Kanye West (Chicago), Lil Wayne (New Orleans, Jay-Z (New York), Drake (Toronto), Ross (Miami), Nicki Minaj (New York), T.I. (Atlanta), Ludacris (Atlanta), 50 Cent (New York), Game (LA), B.O.B. (Atlanta). Looks like a pretty diversified breakdown if you ask me.

    The real issue is that Hip Hop is dead in the mainstream, and I mean the hip hop sound not some rapper spitting over pop/alternative rock music. Time to rebuild from the bottom again and get back to the basics

  • freshyboi

    you wont catch me buying an album with a dudes talking about how rich they are and how much money they have, apparently they dont need any more

  • King of Henry County

    Well busters I’m from N.Y.C. and they ain’t saying shet nowadays they are disgusting.New York rappers are now riding dirty south nuts ex,Diddy and 50.The south is doing it big now so give respect.

  • newyawka631

    MIDWEST SIDE IN THIS MUCKA FUCKA. FUCK ALL YALL, THE MIDWEST GOT THE BEST RAPPERS BYATCH. BY THE WAY GUCCI MAN AND SOULJA BOY ARE THE BEST RAPPERS FROM THE SOUTH.

  • Coolest

    I’m not a big Gucci fan, but this album besides his first is the best he has put out. He even admits he’s not the best rapper, but he grinds harder than these other cats. You have to respect his hustle. The lyrics have gotten better and the beats bang as usual. His music is usually for his base, which include a bunch of hood cats and rats. But this time he has stepped it up with Swiss, and Pharrel. Check out the album before you diss. Don’t hate on someone because they don’t talk and act like you.

  • Coolest

    BTW, people said the same thing about Master P, now he’s worth $618 million. That’s more than Jay, 50, and Diddy. Don’t hate another mans hustle, worry about getting yours. If you don’t like it, cool. But WTF are you doing with your life. Take notes from Gucci, on how to get money and stop hating on the next black man.

    • Caine

      A lotta niggaz should peeped P’s blueprint…

    • ignorance spotter

      @Coolest: relax homey master p is not worth more than diddy and definately not Jayz lol…maybe 10 years ago.

  • LEEK

    Gucci is not on Atlantic anymore, he’s back to being on Asylum and they operate like an independant. The projected numbers are not bad considering it’s in the ballpark of some artist that put out forward thinking music (The Roots/John Legend, Nas/Damian Marley, Big Boi)that are on majors.

    Hip hop is definately in a wierd place in the mainstream market, it makes Jay Rock’s move to Strange Music look like the greatest thing ever.

    dumb fucks lil wayne sold 90 thousand and gucci mane sold 65 thousand how is that a flop thats number three on the chart stupid fucks
