This week saw a considerable amount of releases in the hip-hop realm, from Eminem's highly anticipated ninth studio album Revival and G-Eazy's third studio album The Beautiful & Damned, to Jeezy's Pressure. Though we still have a bit of time before the official numbers come in, HITS Daily Double has released its projections for what those numbers will look like.
Unsurprisingly, Eminem is projected to take the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Charts with an estimated 280-300k total units moved.
G-Eazy's The Beautiful & Damned isn't too far behind with 135-155k. Jeezy's Pressure, which is stacked with features from Diddy , 2 Chainz, Tory Lanez, Rick Ross, Kodak Black, Trey Songz, Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole and more, is projected to move 55-65k while the soundtrack for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which is also dominating the box office, comes in fourth on the list with 38-44k.
G-Eazy will head on the road beginning in February to support his newly released album. The tour, in which he will be accompanied by Trippie Redd, Phora, and Anthony Russo, will kick off in Houston. Check out dates below.
