Flop or is that okay considering the fact the album had no buzz or radio play?  Actually these numbers are higher then I expected.  I was thinking 60k, I think Game needs to pop out a greatest hits (but does he have enough good tracks for that) and bounce from interscope and try to re-establish himself somewhere else.  Maybe e1 or some indy and take what little star power he has left and start putting out these BWS acts...

That's pretty good. Around what I expected. The album should crawl to a Gold plaque after a few months.

I was thinking it would be in the 60k to but 90-95K i dont think is anything to be ashamed of but how do digital downloads factor into it?

Not surprising. He has star power as far as people knowing who he is, but he isn't "in" anymore

Everybody needs to stop lowering their standards.

If Game wants to be in the same class as Eminem, Kanye, Jay-Z, Lil Wayne & Drake, as far as being poppin' in the game, he needs to be putting up their numbers.

I know sales don't mean anything, but pretty funny how Jay Rock sells 5,000, people are saying that's good & Game, supposedly one of the biggest names in Hip Hop & he's barely even touching 100K.

I never expected this album to even sell well and sales dont mean hes a bad rapper last I checked Nas is in class with rappers you stated and he doesnt sell that great any more. Im not defending people saying these numbers are good but being a good rapper doesnt require you to sell a lot.
Oh never mind I didnt read the poppin the game part ignore what I said.

Game is not in the same class as Kanye, Jay or Wayne in terms in popularity or sales.  But hes about to sell more than anyone on the westcoast, so hes still doing it big and holding it down.  I dont see the problem with 90k....Pretty fucking good IMO and way more units than 90 percent of the rest of rap releases.

nobody is sellin shit anymore besides the very big names in music  in general ( I mean artists who are known outside the kind of music they belong to) ... tell me which rapper outside the 5 rappers you named (plus TI and 50) has gone platinum ... won't surprised me if you have to go back to 2006 for that
Snoop doesn't even reach the gold certification if you add the numbers of his 2 latest albums

There is no problem with 90K, I mean it is what it is. I'm talking about how Game refers to himself & how his fans speak about him. He should be doing 250K first week, no problem.
