After a day's worth of album sales to calculate, more accurate first week projections for Kanye West, J. Cole, and Mac Miller are in.
Yeezus is expected to land somewhere between 375-400k, while Born Sinner will hit around 290-315k. One of the most popular independent MC's at the moment, Miller's Watching Movies with the Sound Off will likely break the 100k mark.
Regardless of the eventual Billboard tally come next Wednesday, June 18 was a great day for hip-hop, even if J. Cole isn't too fond of the projections.
