Now that Eminem’s has released his highly-anticipated album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2the rapper is expected to dominate the Billboard 200 albums chart next week.

According to the publication, Slim Shady’s latest project is projected to sell an estimated 700,000 to 750,000 units in its first seven days in stores, marking the second-largest sales week of the year and ensuring a #1 debut.  Drake’s Nothing Was the Same currently occupies the #2 position, with 658,000 units sold.

While it’s unlikely Eminem will surpass debut sales of Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience, which opened with 968,000 units sold, The Marshall Mathers LP 2 will mark the rapper’s seventh consecutive chart-topper.  Em, who’s currently tied with Nas and Kanye West for the second-most #1 albums, stands alongside Lil Wayne as being the only rappers since 2008 who have sold more than 700,000 copies in a week.  Eminem’s last album, 2010’s Recovery, sold 741,000 copies, while Weezy’s Tha Carter III sold 1.01 million its first week out in 2008, followed by Wayne’s Tha Carter IV in 2011, which sold 964,000 units.
