sucks donkey balls for game
Cause I don't care where I belong no more
What we share or not I will ignore
And I won't waste my time fitting in
Cause I don't think contrast is a sin
No, it's not a sin

This must be wrong. Ain't no way 18 artists gonna sell more than 100 K this week. Normally about 5 or 6 artists are selling that much.

That did strike me, but it's a pretty reliable site that posted this (hitsdailydouble).

The numbers overall are up because it is the holiday season. The majority of artists that drop in November and December do good numbers.

Well I think The Game would have liked to stay withen 200K. None the less, he has already done gold numbers, and will probably go platinum.

who cares if he sells way more than banks... banks ain't shit ... he sells way more than ICP, does that make it great? no, it doesnt.

well lloyd banks is supposed to be a big artist thats the only reason im comparing it.... if a "big" artist like banks did those numbers his first week.... comes to show something that game is selling really well...

but we will see at the end of the day it really doesnt matter because he dropped heat on this cd... which is all that matters... the only reason i want to see him sell well is so he can continue to drop big production cds in the future...

Yeah he needs to put that single out ASAP. Its funny that Strip Club is finally starting to hit the billgboard charts and FINALLY getting showed on 106 and Park and TRL, but I think its too late. I would just put out Wouldnt Get Far before he falls to deep

Too bad for Game, but he's already rich as fuck anyways, and he's probably laughing his ass off at all the groupies that bought 8 albums

i found a website that shows sales for game's album world wide.
but its last week's sales.

http://www.geocities.com/inthitlists/albums.htm

debuts at no.1 on the world charts, selling 433 600 copies

selling 378,000 in the U.S. & around 55,000 in the rest of the world.

Now we will see how much Geffen and Game promote and back the album. If they drop multiple singles and are smart about it, they will see good sales.

Snoop is doing his thing. Almost 300k with a dead in the water 1st single and another that only has been out a couple of weeks is good. But he also is Snoop Dogg and he had a good media blitz around him.

The 2pac situation is finally starting to catch up. I think people are growing tired of the remixed albums but it will be interesting to see the shelf life of this album. Gotta drop another single. Playa Cardz Right Male and Female combined into 1 video would blow up IMO. Have it like Luda & Keisha Cole are having a conversation about relationships and have Pac be the friend trying to keep it together. The shit would work.

But 3 west coast albums in the top 20 of the charts is still damn good.

  • The movement is Suckaa Free.
Game needs a nakid picture of Mya inside his cover.


but yea, i think phillyboy is somewhere laughin right now.  Game really needs to push a good single...which i just dont see, IMO.


Pick up 2 gats like Riley with a full 16 clip, on some sick shit like Lynch, while rippin a bitch's clit with beyonce's mouth on the tip of my dick.

Dangerous Crew Beeyatch!

i can't believe jay sold 700,000+ records...that shit is fucking ridiculous :o what makes me fuckin pissed is that all his sales were based on straight hype of his comeback. 80% of the tracks on his album fucking suck. people really irk me sometimes. they'll go out and support a lying multi-millionaire by buying his "comeback" cd when there is plenty of fresh talent out there that is hungry as fuck. why not bootleg jay and buy albums from cats that actually deserve it? shit makes me mad...

Just two years ago banks was a 1.5 million cd in sales cat, but you say now he aint nothin. get the fuck out of here wit that shit. Plus outside of songwriting banks is killin fif and everyone else in bitch unit.  I would like to see boo boo curtis with out the backing of the white boy and his trl fan base he brings wit him. you damn well know what kind of numbers he would have put up on his first to albums. if game had of stayed wit bitch unit he would have bricked just like lloyd, mobb deep, yayo and what the rest are going to do.  the only one that will sale in g-unit is boo boo, and his numbers are not going to be as good as his last two.
