worldwide sales: Snoop Dogg     Ego Trippin    556980

That's a weak ass score considering who Snoop Dogg is

Ego Trippin didn't deserve to move units, the album sucked. 
i agree. its terrible.
if snoop made his old signature westcoast gfunk albums from the 90's, he would always do atleast platinum.
snoop's 1999 top dogg & 2000 tha last meal albums both went more than double platinum.

snoop switched up his style on the paid tha coast album, and the consequences of that is that it only went 1.2 platinum.
thats a big drop from the sales that he was doing before. my question is why did he have to change his style if it doesnt sell as good as his older music?....

people buy snoop records to hear gangsta records, and not some pop bubblegum shyt.

i can only wish that snoop has changed his mind, and that his next solo album will be on some westcoast gfunk shyt like from 2000 and before then. but i wont hold my breath.
my guess is he will make an even more gay pop record to sell instead of doing the type of music which made snoop a legendary rapstar.

no, its because the album sucked.
the economy was very strong in 2006.

the financial crisis only happened in the 2nd half of 2008

 I also remember Kurupt on his first solo "kuruption" album, laughin at rappers that only sell 100,000, 200,000 copies. lol.
 i didnt realise that snoops album flopped like that though, that actually really suprises me. I thought that "sensual seduction" actually did well in some places?
 His other singles seemed to go by un noticed though.
 I guess it has been a long time since he ghad a hit single, not since R&G? He dont seem to be featuring on that many big hits anymore either.
 Like what Raskass talking about on his latest album, if you aint big at the time no more features lol..
 Hopefully Snoops next album will be better, he should see that "Ego Trippin" could've been really dope, there were really dope songs on there, but it was just TOO soft, thats not what his fans want, and they dont want country rock. That shit is cool, to experiment, but do that on mix tapes.

Lol @ alll you people thinking if snoop put out a g funk album it would go platinum.  G FUNK IS DEAD!  When will all of you realize that lol?  Snoop is threw, its only going to get worse.  He had a pretty long and successful career but dude is a wrap, nobody is trying to hear dude anymore.  Its time for him to sit down get the fuck out the way or help some of these new cats get to his status.

it probably wasn't enough. i heard a few folks talkin about 'life of of da party' tho.
"thats that" from BCT did pretty good, it wasnt a hit, but it got a nice response.
