There will be some debuts, however, headed by Interscope 50 Cent posse G-Unit, which should finish just behind the big three with a one-week total of 110k for its new album, T.O.S. (Terminate on Sight), their first in five years.

Sales is all relative, compared to how much it cost to actually make the album. No features, no big name producers, little promotion. They'll probably make a profit if this thing sells 200-300k.

the risk is so high right now, not even with huge promotion anymore do albums sell.... so why risk it? less money to get back for everyone

they developed a fan base... this shit is really fucked right now, big names like these guys cant even sell albums, back in the days albums could be garbage but still push alot of units if it was a big name

2 singles with videos before album comes out is pretty good promotion imo.

yeah and once that single flopped, they quickly rushed out that gay ass "Rider Pt. 2" video and that didn't even get them much play, lol... don't get it twisted, I love that song, but that video was too much and looked extremely gay...

not surprised by the sales either... album was average

once The Game outsells G-Unit the excuse will be "Oh it's not fair competition, it's a solo artist VS a group, he needs to outsell 50"

That's completely true. When Game outsells 50, and Game out sells G-Unit with BWS, is the ONLY way Game can say he won. Both those will probably never happen. You can't compare 50 and Game. 50's a business man and manages a record label, puts out albums. Game has a shitty label, and hasn't release any albums on it (other then his own). 50's in a much better place in music these days, and so are the people around him.

Game's record also probably cost maybe triple or more to make. All those features and producers cost a lot of money, not to mention the huge promotion it'll get.

Promotion isn't about singles or videos, it's about advertising, magazines, and all that other crap. Any artist can make a video, but promoting an album costs more then the album costs to make.

Hey 50 has no problem letting people know how many records he sells so each time out it's put up or shut up for me. Game too. They all run around acting like they cracked the Matrix into how to make consumers buy their product. Ok, so now what will be the reason.

 being a business man is cool, but lets remember that this is about putting out the best product for the consumer to buy.  This shitty album/mixtape was the first mistake.   The lack of promotion(which if it was good would have been good for the consumers,  which i feel was preety good( just as good as games if not better)  Hell they were all over the radio whether it was an interview, Curtis all over the radio talking about how he gon push game shit back, the tape convo which was huge promotion, or the controversial ti diss which ringed across the country through every dj around.  Not to mention being on 106 and park twice in one week and  the making of their video being on bet twice.   The consumer wants quality music and they did not deliver for some reason. That reason is if they floped :o which they knew was in the making they can blame it on how raw and gutta the music is, which this cd is not any more raw than say a fat joe album (kitty cat, close to me, like the way she do it, chase da cat and party aint over, ETC) far from gutta

HA HA HA i told you this nigga was a G-Unit stan!

First of all if GAME (solo artist) outsells a GROUP..HOW IN THE FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK CAN U SAY THAT GAME IS NOT WINNING? ARE U FUCKIN SERIOUS WHITEBOY??

SECOND OF ALL. Game did not pay for any of the artist on the album...on Doctors Advocate he only payed 2-3 artist which was Busta Rhymes and someone more. He said it and Snoop, Dogg Pound said it

Not on this album either. He only pays for some of the artist.

*waits for dude to say "When did Game become credible wit anythng he says* lmao like theres a reason to lie about that

This nigga stays with G-Units dick in their mouth

If i fight with 3 niggaz and i know..how the fuck can u not say that I WIN? Ure fucking stupid as fuck u dumb ass muthafucka

And who the fuck cares about WHO MAKES THE SPEND THE MOST FROM THE BUDGET???

The fact is if Game outsells them he wins..he's 1 fucking artist thats gone against 4 G-Unit members + the sidekicks like Spider Loc, MOP and Mobb Deep!
