The estimated first week sales figures will likely earn him a spot at No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200 on Wednesday, November 17. Last year, the 2009 XXL Freshman entered the charts at the No. 4 position after pushing out 103,900 units of his first album Man on the Moon: The End of Day.

Other artists expected to hit the SoundScan rundown next week include Cee Lo Green and Twista. The Goodie Mob crooner’s third solo LP, The Lady Killer, is on it’s way to sell around 30,000 to 35,000 while Twista’s The Perfect Storm is believed to rack up around 19,000 to 22,000.

The projections for Joe Budden’s Mood Muzik 4: A Turn for the Worst, which also dropped two days ago, has not been revealed.
