I think some of ya'll are in denial......30,000 first week is not good......and please don't give me it dropped on Koch(Indy) so it's good..NO... because it still takes money to make a CD....and believe me(Puffy, David Banner, and Paul Wall didn't work for free) it does take money to pay for beats, Manufature the CD's, Shoot Videos, Distribute the records... etc...etc.......I am a fan...but the reality is the dogg pound is no longer relevant in Hip-Hop...it pretty much went unnoticed....Mobb Deep sold more there first week and people called it a flop....
Thank you. Cube pushed over 140K independtly after spending 6 years away from rap, so don't tell me 30K is good because they are independent. Snoop Dogg is a bigger name in the rap game today then Ice Cube is. You guys are in denial. At this point... Cali Iz Inactive. And don't call me a hater either, because I really wanted "Cali Iz Active" to succeed.

On Point, the album was horrendous but now that I think about it 30k is pretty weak

I doubt there'll be a second single, especially doubt a second video.  213 only had one video as far as I'm aware.  Dogg Pound are basically the same situation.  I bet right after 4th of July Snoop started turning his attention to Blue Carpet Treatment just as he did for R&G immediately after Tha Hard Way dropped.  I still think 213 should've spent SOMETHING on a second video for "Joystick," because Nate's hook was catchy as a fly trap and the "ride my joystick" catchphrase would've blown up with immature frat boys and the like.
"Detox" is a myth -- Bigfoot, Loch Ness Monster, Area 51, Iraq having WMD, Detox...you get it now?  It was invented by the Aftermath marketing department to maintain the fans' attention.  Notice how everytime a new Aftermath album is ready to come out, they always mention Detox is next up?  Because they are using the invention of "Detox" as a way to market other albums.  The sooner you realize that Detox is NOT REAL, the sooner you'll feel liberated.  Oh yeah, f.u. Aftermath for fooling us fans.

I bet DPG will sell more than Mobb Deep.  The thing is that they don't get a lot of play and that is what is wrong with the radio because Cali Iz Active is good music.  The other shit isn't.  It isn't on Hot 97 or Kube 93's (Seattle) playlist.  Wackness.
lol at DPG selling more than Mobb Deep, Kurupt & Daz will be lucky if they sell another 20 000 copies.

LOL @ this shit going triple macaroni
lmao at macaroni
