ScHoolboy Q Slated To Debut No. 1 On Billboard, KiD CuDi At No. 2

blame it on Meka February 26, 2014

According to Billboard, Puffy’s major label debut is expected to top the charts, selling between 150,000 and 160,000 copies of OXYMORON.

Following in Beyoncé’s footsteps and surprise-dropping his new album Satellite Flight: The Journey To Mother Moon, KiD CuDi is expected to follow right behind Q and sell approximately 90,000 copies of the album.

All of this comes a week before both Rick Ross (Mastermind) and Pharrell (G I R L) release their own respective albums. Maybe hip-hop can run the charts for two straight weeks? We shall see.

  • Feat. God

    honestly surprised Cudi is gonna move that many units, I guess this style of rollout leads to a lot of impulse purchases

    • Cam TexasBoy Perry

      he got a nice loyal fanbase. he can drop anything and it will sell 70k to 100k. he doesn’t even really need a label

    • Dave

      His fans aint no joke. Niggas will take a bullet for him

  • quas

    kid cudi’s album came straight outa left field and is definitely his best work in a long time. As of now it has more plays than oxymoron..

    • Enjoyer of Music

      saying that this is CuDi’s best work in awhile doesn’t really say much tho.

    • disqus_xpmwx1oUV3

      Honestly that is you’re opinion, but that album was not a garbage project all the way but more of: “I could care less if I never hear it again type of project from him”.

  • Tino

    Super suprised Cudi sold that much because his album sucked in my opinion. Congrats to Groovy Q tho, Oxymoron is dope as hell.

    • Dave

      Dont diss Cudi

  • thatrandomguy

    Who you think is going to sell more between Rick Ross and Pharrell?

    • MiguelGutierrez


      • TheRealPaperKut

        Nah, white people love Pharrell.

        • But white people love rozay…

          • MusicHead

            Not as much as Pharrell tho lol

        • MiguelGutierrez

          You’ll see my friend.

        • disqus_xpmwx1oUV3

          It is sad that we have to rely on what White people like in the first place tho LOL.

      • Josh

        Pharrell…and it won’t be close. Pharrell has the #1 single in America and featured on two of the four biggest hits of last year. He’s got way more buzz and interest than Ross does atm. Pharrell will outsell Ross 2-to-1. Bet.

  • MiguelGutierrez

    God bless TDE!! Congrats to Grovy Q and Cudder.

  • i was kinda disappointed in OXYMORON..

    • sineng

      at first i was disappointed too but it was kind of a mixture between heard too many tracks off it already and then waiting too long (although q never had a real release date) and finally getting caught up in all the “its going to be better than gkmc” hype. i was expecting too much. now that i sat with this for a week i can honestly say i think this is a great album! not gkmc level but still very very good. ordered the deluxe off amazon too. i dont know, maybe we gotta stop listening to leaked tracks off albums before they drop and not have the highest expectations every time. but then again, this is tde, they are all about raising expectations. i tell to myself everytime that i wont listen to any leaks and never worked out haha. but i fucks with oxymoron and tde is the best thing happening in music right now. i hope your opinion on the album changes over time too.

      • thatrandomguy

        “… heard too many tracks off it already”. This.

        • sineng

          every single time breh. i swear.

  • HeruthaGod (Original N-G-R)

    I remember about a month ago niggas came at me foul for saying Q could possibly do 175K+ first week & told me he was more likely to do 70-85K lol

    • Mike Deezy

      that was like last week.

      • HeruthaGod (Original N-G-R)

        nah it was a month

    • Pizza Steve

      Haha I think remember that, niggas always wrong

      • HeruthaGod (Original N-G-R)

        Right lol

    • jordan

      well if his own camp wont buy like 20k+ albums for promotion and free give aways he will sell around 100k.

    • disqus_xpmwx1oUV3

      It just goes to show you how much niggas got faith in their own genre, brotha good shit tho, you was speaking truth.

      • HeruthaGod (Original N-G-R)

        Thanks bruh

    • Johnny Said

      That’s because every person on this site thinks they’re an A&R lol

  • Chris Brown

    ball so hard

  • 2dope4nope

    Congratulations. Well deserved next up for #1 album Soulo and Rock, might be stretching it but can just hope right, and props to Top Dawg Ent thanks for the music to my ears!

  • Guest

    Anyone else notice that it says “Puffy’s Major Label Debut”?

    • Mac Dre

      Yeah, that’s what Oxymoron is lol. So?

    • BounceB

      clearly youre not a big TDE stan its cool lol..but one of Q’s nicknames is Puffy he refers to himself as that and has been for awhile even diddy gave him permission lol

  • Beard Gawd

    I’m honestly kind of surprised with these numbers considering Q hasn’t had any of his singles do any damage on the charts but I wonder if any singles will catch on the way ‘Swimming Pools’ did for K. Dot after GKMC dropped.

    Anyways, ‘Oxymoron’ was solid. Soul’s probably my favourite from TDE so I hope his upcoming project will be fuckin’ fire.

  • xastey

    Congrats Q.

  • Exhibit C

    Happy for Q, he earned it, it’s a great album. I hope Soulo and Rock can do those numbers too but more importantly keep the streak of great albums coming. Since the days of Follow Me Home, Section.80, Control System, Habits and Contradictions everything from these guys has been great. I would even call all four of those albums personal classics. I remember the exact time in my life when all four of those albums came out and I played them all for like a month straight each one.

    • MusicHead

      Yea that streak of 4 albums.. WAS GOLDEN.

  • disqus_xpmwx1oUV3

    Great album from Q, not so fond of Cudi, but if it is good for hip-hop who the fuck cares. As a hip-hop fan, I want to see my genre represent on the charts hard.

  • Charlie Van Horn

    Wow, must have been a slow week. Good for Q…album is ok at best, lol. Best songs are the ones released before the album dropped. KiD CuDi’s is HORRIBLE. Hip Hop is slowly heading down the drain due to mainstream Hip Pop garbage clogging up the airways.

  • Chris Brown

    cudi’s fall from epicness is also epic

  • Isaiah

    Once you people realize that Cudi is not a hip hop artist you will be able to view his music in the correct aspect. There is actually only one song where Cudi raps on the album. Stop critiquing his music as hip hop. He is indie-alternative artist. Cudi ha repeated this several times yet people review his music as rap. Hip Hop is not good to me anymore. Most artist just follow trends.

    • MusicHead

      That’s prolly why I think his music so trash now.

  • disqus_pyrGXaSTDx

    not bad for Q, didnt asap sell similar without being in the same crew as the worlds current favourite rapper and less music out and leaking a month early.. just an observation.. I rock with both.

  • Joe Dirt

    cudders album is absolute trash

    • MusicHead


  • ded red

    Pharrell is gonna crap on all 3 of their numbers combined.

  • Dave

    If Cudi promoted like Q i bet you my last dollar he would be number 1 and not Q. But im happy for them both. Congrats
