— — — Rapper Nas’ new album, Life Is Good, is being projected to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The album would give Nas his sixth number one album. That puts the Queens-born legend in company that includes Eminem and Jay-Z.
1996’s It Was Written, 1997’s The Firm with Foxy Brown, AZ, and Nature, 1999’s I Am, 2007’s Hip Hop Is Dead and 2008’s “Untitled” all hit number one on the charts.
Life Is Good could possibly be the only title that will sell over 100,000 this week, Billboard reports.
