NBA YoungBoy is looking to have another big opening week with his surprise mixtape, Richest Opp.
According to HITS Daily Double, YoungBoy is projected to move 58,000 copies of Richest Opp, a slightly lower number than his last effort, Don’t Try This At Home, which moved 62,000 units and debuted on top of Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop albums chart. The Baton Rouge, Louisiana native’s projections for his new mixtape will have him debut in the top 5.
It won’t be an easy entry for the 23-year-old, though, as he’ll be competing with the Jonas Brothers and their project, The Album, which is projected to move 58,000 units as well.
NBA YoungBoy has continued his prolific run of releases in 2023. In addition to Don’t Try This At Home, YoungBoy opened the year with I Rest My Case, which debuted at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 chart with 29,000 copies moved in the first week.
That album also picked up the fiery pace that YoungBoy left in 2022 with The Last Slimeto, which opened with 114,000 units and debuted at No. 1 and No. 2 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop and 200 charts, respectively.
NBA YoungBoy’s Richest Opp was released by surprise on Friday and comes with 17 tracks. The mixtape has been causing quite the stir on social media as well thanks to the single “F*ck The Industry Pt. 2” where YoungBoy took shots at Drake, J. Cole, Lil Yachty, and Lil Durk.
