Mac Miller’s 2010 mixtape K.I.D.S. (Kickin’ Incredibly Dope Shit) debuts at No. 112 on the Billboard 200 chart (dated May 16) in the first full tracking week after the set’s arrival on streaming services on Wednesday, April 29.

The album debuts via Rostrum Records with 9,000 equivalent album units earned in the tracking week ending May 7, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

The mixtape features some of Miller’s notable early tracks, including “Senior Skip Day,” “Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza” and “Knock Knock,” which reached No. 88 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2012.

Last year, Rostrum Records founder Benjy Grinberg announced that the set would soon be made available on streaming all streaming platforms.

"On this 9th anniversary of the first tape that Mac and Rostrum put out together, I'm excited to announce that K.I.D.S. will be available on all streaming services later this year!" Grinberg wrote on Instagram on K.I.D.S.' ninth anniversary. "After Macadelic came out, Mac asked if we could clear this one next. It has been challenging but we are getting through it. We miss Mac every day and we see our job as making sure his music lives on. We love you, Mac."

Grinberg first signed Miller to Rostrum in 2010, before later signing with Warner Bros. Records in 2014.

Earlier this year, Miller’s sixth studio album and first posthumous release Circles debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 (chart dated Feb. 1) with 164,000 units. The set was Miller’s biggest week for an album, in terms of units, since the chart began ranking by equivalent album units in December 2014. The week Circles debuted, Miller charted 10 of the song’s 12 tracks on the Hot 100.

K.I.D.S. accompanies Miller’s Circles and Swimming on the latest Billboard 200, as those albums stand at Nos. 120 and 153, respectively.
