Contest: Predict the album sales of Kanye’s 808s & Heartbreak

    Can Kanye top the sales of Graduation? Is he the biggest star in hip-hop right now? If he moves over one million units the first week that 808s & Heartbreak is released, will his ego get even bigger? These are just some of the questions that could be answered next week.


    It’s a monster week of releases this week and we’re holding album sales contests for four of the biggest albums (Day & Age, 808s & Heartbreak, Theater of the Mind, Chinese Democracy) hitting the store shelves.


    The prize is a $20 Amazon gift certificate and bragging rights for the week. Please note that only registered users will be in the running.



    • Predict in the comments where Kanye West’s new album, 808s & Heartbreak, will chart.
    • Also predict how many copies of 808s & Heartbreak will be sold during its first week.
    • Predictions after Sunday (November 30, 2008 will be disqualified).
