Lil Wayne‘s latest mixtape, Tha Fix Before Tha VI, sold 19,000 album-equivalent units in its first week of release, according to HitsDailyDouble. The project was released as a prelude to his forthcoming album, Tha Carter VI.
“Tha Carter VI,” Wayne’s 14th studio album, has been a hot topic since 2022. In a video shared on social media, Wayne expressed his gratitude to his fans and casually dropped the news, saying, “I’m not sure if you heard, but Carter VI is on the way.”
Thoughts on the Sales
The sales numbers for “Tha Fix Before Tha VI” are certainly lower than what Lil Wayne is used to selling, but they’re still respectable for a mixtape, especially one that was released with no promotion. It’s also important to remember that hip hop album sales are down by estimated 40% this year. We expect Lil Wayne to record higher streaming numbers when Tha Carter VI officially arrives.
“Tha Fix Before Tha VI” features 10-tracks, including guest appearances from Fousheé, Euro and Jon Batiste.
