2 Chainz Projected For No. 1 Debut On Billboard 200

    Having released his debut studio album this week, 2 Chainz is on path to his first No. 1 record. Based On a T.R.U. Story is projected to sell upwards of 130,000 copies by Sunday, Aug. 19; it seems, though, that the rapper–who’s got two No. 1 songs (“No Lie,” “Mercy”) already under his belt–has little preventing him from meeting the prediction. For perspective, the Insane Clown Posse is slated to hit the runner-up spot, selling 35,000+ albums, with their new album The Mighty Death Pop! So, yeah…2 CHAAIINNZZ! [Billboard]
