Congrats to my mothaf*ckin’ BOY Dave East, who cracked the Billboard 200 Top 10 for the very first time with the release of his EP, Paranoia: A True Story. (Mind you, this isn’t even the official full-length album debut!) Paranoia sold a solid 26k units, securing the number 9 slot. Previously, Dave hit the chart with Kairi Chanel in 2016, which debuted and peaked at number 38.
Kodak Black had an even bigger debut with his mixtape Project Baby Two, coming in at number 2 with 50k. Earlier this year, his debut album Painting Pictures started at number 3 with 71k. Elsewhere on the chart, A$AP Ferg‘s Still Striving just missed the top 10, coming in at number 12 with 24k.
Looking ahead to next week, Lil Uzi Vert, XXXTENTACION and A$AP Mob will all debut on the Billboard 200. Uzi‘s Luv Is Rage 2 is looking at a number one debut with around 110-120k, while XXX’s 17 is looking at 65-70k (likely a number two debut) and the Mob’s Cozy Tapes Vol. 2: Too Cozy is looking at around 30-35k.
