In case you missed it, Meek Mill dropped his sophomore album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, a day early at the top of the week. The Philly rapper let the project go as the BET Awards were still running and the timing couldn’t have been better by the sounds of it. While a couple other semi-mainstream rappers are coming to terms with lackluster album sales, Meek is on his way to a whole new benchmark and is reportedly in the process of carving out his first #1 debut.
According to Billboard, DWMTM is set to push more than 200,000 album units—which also accounts for streaming and the number of single songs from the album get downloaded—in its first week on shelves. Especially in an industry hemorrhaging sales for the most part, Mill is in good shape considering his last album, 2012’s Dreams and Nightmares, debuted at #2 and started out with 165,000 albums sold in its first week.
