When Nipsey Hussle's only studio album Victory Lap dropped in February of last year it did 53K sales plus streaming in its first week.
It just did 66K SPS in the week following Nip's death, 2,244 percent increase over its previous week's performance. That places him second on the Billboard 200 to Billie Eilish's smash debut When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go, which surprised with 313K SPS.
Nipsey Hussle is the latest artist to see his sales explode in the wake of his death. Do you think this increased interest in his music will elevate Nip's legacy to that of a GOAT-type rapper?
