Thanks to Lil Uzi Vert, the great rap sales drought of 2023 is over.
Vert’s Pink Tape is projected to do between 220K and 250K first week.

That will make it the first number one rap album of the year, as it will be enough to deny Morgan Wallen a 16th week in the top spot.
It will also be close to the 288K Uzi’s last album Eternal Atake did first week in 2020.
Is Uzi now the biggest rapper in the game whose name isn’t Drake?
