In less than a week, Get Rich or Die Tryin' has turned 50 Cent into a cash cow for his record label.

Get Rich or Die Tryin' will be the top-selling album on next week's Billboard albums chart, moving in excess of 872,000 copies, according to SoundScan figures released Wednesday (February 12). With the tremendous total, the LP is the best-selling debut album since SoundScan started its tracking system in May 1991. Only Snoop Dogg's 1993 debut, Doggystyle, comes close, with more than 802,000 copies sold in its first week.


Congratulations 50 and G-Unit

what an investment 1 million and he pushes more units than most major heavy weights can. remember when master p signed snoop he paid 10 million for a part share of him with deathrow.


iraq would just get annexed by iran


That would be a great solution.  If Iran and the majority of Iraqi's are pleased with it, then why shouldn't they do it?

He's definitely not worth all this fame...but thanks to everyone riding Eminem's nuts (well, at least he's talented), this guy is now up there with Snoop, B.I.G. & 2Pac for highest selling debut by a black artist. Listen, no matter how much you like 50 Cent, you really gotta be ridin his dick to tell me that his name belongs up there with B.I.G., Snoop, whatever... damn, I can't believe this bullshit rapper is so popular. I know a lot of you might disagree, but just answer me honestly, is he REALLY worth becoming the most successful black artist with his debut album?

BIG and Pac's debuts did not sell a lot in their first week out.

I do agree with everything else you said and I thought of that clown before I went to sleep.

His debut Power, wasn't officially released so I guess that's why they consider this his debut.

my mistake... I mistook the B.I.G. (Life After Death) & 2Pac (Makaveli) first week sales for debut albums, since these two albums sold about 700-750K in their first week.

oh yeah, I hope the clown messed with your head... just a little bit  ;D

Yup. Major label debut is probably what they mean.
I bought both "Power of the dollar" & "Guess who's back" in Norwegian record-stores..

In comparison they did not have "Ghetto Heisman" and Nate Dogg's "Music & Me" came several months after the release.
Jayo Felony albums is out of the question..

congrats to 50 cent but he still hasn't REALLY beaten snoops first weeks sales. Not every store had soundscan back when doggystyle came out and it still sold 803,000 in it's first week which is FUCKEN UNVELIEVABLE, but yes he did do it. jsut read the following document and u will see that even though it may say 50 sold more than doggystyle first week, he reallly most likely didn't.

N'Sync and Eminem have both benefited from Soundscan by becoming the number one and two biggest selling first week sales in history.  N'Sync holds the record at 2.4 million copies and Eminem at 1.76 million.  Because these sales received so much media attention, it also became a way of promoting the album.  Also, this helps artist know how many units are sold so they can determine what they should get paid.
    With something that sounds so good as Soundscan may seem, there will always be a few problems.  Not all retail stores are not linked to the Soundscan database.  What about the neighborhood retailers that cannot afford or do not sell enough copies, or do not need Soundscan to count their sales.  They also may not have all the resources as a chain store.  There are quite a few artist that may get the RIAA certification because of the shipments of units, but what about sales figures?  Many products have seen strong sales at local shops in many different cities.  How will Soundscan give an accurate number of copies sold if they miss these stores? It is a problem that may hurt the credibility of many products.

Two albums that have missed are Dr. Dre's "Chronic" and Snoop Doggy Dogg's debut "Doggystyle".  These are two albums that experienced huge success in the "mom and pop" establishments.  It seems like every rap fan owns these albums, but they are certified at 3 million(Chronic) and 5 million(Doggystyle), low for two blockbuster albums in the era they were released. It is rumored that Dr. Dre has sold over 8 million copies of Chronic. Snoop Dogg was the highest selling rap album for the first week( before Eminem), but only the Soundscan stores were counted in the 800,000 copies counted.  This was without the stores without Soundscan.  Being released in 1993, there were many stores that have Soundscan now that did not back then.
