Nicki Minaj “Pink Friday” To Sell 400k+ & De-Thrown Lauryn Hill???

Also gunning for a big entrance next week is Nicki Minaj‘s debut effort, “Pink Friday,” which is on target to begin with more than 400,000. It could mark the best sales week for a female hip-hop artist since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991. Currently, that record is held by rapper/singer Lauryn Hill‘s “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill,” which launched with 423,000 in 1998. (The best week for a straight-ahead female emcee was earned by Missy Elliott‘s “Under Construction,” when it bowed with 259,000 in 2002.)

Nicki is the ONLY GIRL in HipHop right now or at least that’s what 50 Cent had to say of Young Money’s first lady in a recent interview. I’m inclined to agree, her album could possibly de-thrown the iconic “Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” (from a sales standpoint at least). This would be a HUGE triumph for her and Lil Wayne, her mentor. “Pink Friday” is one of the best albums I’ve reviewed in a while. That dungeon dragon is on a mission!!! COP IT IMMEDIATELY!!!
