Lil’ Wayne On Track To Sell 850k In First Week?

Despite an early leak, industry forecasters are reporting that hip hop heavyweight Lil’ Wayne’s ‘Tha Carter IV’ is still set to have an impressive debut on next week’s Billboard 200 -boasting sales of 700-850k.  If such is the case, the numbers would easily give him the highest tally of any solo male artist this year, and second overall (under Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’).

The forecasted numbers best that of fellow hip-hop heavyweights Jay-Z & Kanye West (who interestingly managed to release their album unleaked).  Regardless, ‘IV’ will mark Wayne’s 3rd no. 1 album and second highest first week sales behind ‘Tha Carter III’ (which sold a whopping 1 million its first week in 2008).

Birdman Confirms Lil’ Wayne/Drake Album

That Grape Juice asked readers yesterday to weigh the impact of Kanye West and Jay-Z‘s joint effort ‘Watch the Throne’.  Now, reports have surfaced indicating two of hip hop’s other heavyweights have already put those wheels in motion – Lil’ Wayne and Drake.  Revealed by Cash Money founder/rapper Birdman to our friends at XXL, the Young Money duo is preparing a joint release after their respective ‘Tha Carter IV’ (August 29th) and ‘Take Care’ (October 24) albums.

Birdman stated:

“It’s older versus younger.  I listened to a few songs [off Watch The Throne] and it feels like an older feel to me. I think with Drake and Wayne, they young. They young cats. You got 23 and 28. Then you got Jay-Z and them, who are older and really on their way out the game. Then you got Wayne and Drake and them, who are still youthful to the game. So, it’s two different types of music all the way across the board.”

No title or tentative release date has been confirmed.
