DMX‘s third compilation album, The Best of DMX, is projected to enter the Billboard 200 top 10 following the rapper’s death on April 9.

According to HITS Daily Double, the greatest hits record is looking to earn somewhere between a total of 30,000 to 50,000 in equivalent album units. This estimate will depend on the album’s activity in the coming days but if forecasts are correct, the project will see a new chart high as it jumps from its current peak of No. 102 logged in 2016.

The Best of DMX was released 11 years ago in January 2010 and follows the two compilation albums The Definition of X: The Pick of the Litter and Playlist Your Way. The 21-track project features a selection of favorite cuts from the likes of It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot, Flesh of My Blood, Blood of My Blood, ….And Then There Was X, The Great Depression, Grand Champ and the soundtrack albums of his films, Belly and Cradle 2 the Grave.

The family of DMX announced his death on April 9 after a slew of misinformation about his condition. In a statement, his family revealed that he died at White Plains Hospital in New York “with his family by his side.”

Elsewhere on the chart, Taylor Swift’s re-recorded version of Fearless is set to debut at No. 1 with over 300,000 in total activity while BROCKHAMPTON‘s ROADRUNNER: NEW LIGHT, NEW MACHINE will open with at least 28,000 units.

In related news, DMX reportedly finished his album before his death.
