The Game Barely Misses Top Of Billboard Album Charts With L.A.X.

[Editor's Note: SoundScan numbers were adjusted this afternoon resulting in Game's album landing at number 2. The rapper sold 238,382 copies, but rockers Slipknot pushed 239, 516 copies to debut at the top spot. XXLmag.com will have more on this as it develops.]

The Game said his latest album, L.A.X., will be his last and if so, what a way to go out.

The California rapper’s third album landed atop of the Billboard 200 charts its first week out. The LP sold just over 230,00 copies to best rock outfit Slipknot by less than ten scanned albums.

This is the third time The Game has made a debut at number one. His 2005 album The Documentary and 2006′s The Doctor’s Advocate also topped the charts.

In related news, Chuck Taylor also hopes to come out on top during his Madden video game challenge with Bow Wow. The two rappers have been swamping insults recently via interviews and YouTube posts. Now a date for their challenge has been set.

Game and Bow will face off this Friday, September 5 at an undisclosed location.

Details have also emerged regarding their battle: The two will play five-minute quarters, All-Madden level, and there will be no skunk rule.

While Bow Wow has gone as far to release a dis track about the challenged aimed at Game, it turns out Chuck Taylor is actually quite the video game player.

According to MTV News, Game has a Madden record of 171-30, placing him at the sixth-ranked player in the world.—Anthony Thomas

  • KILLA IZ WASSUP

    WOPZ that album was WACK…and boring..ICE CUBES cd was 10 TIMES BETTER

    • Wopz

      Ice Cube’s flow is played out and I know dude is a legend but gimme a break; he’s a suburban icon with disney-type movies under hsi belt. And Game’s a complicated kid; I’m not vouching for his behaviour but the beats are fire and flow is better than average and compared to the rest of the garbage lately; he’s on point artistically.

      FIRST OFF I like game but I didn’t think he could put out a classic album. I think L.A.X if not a classic pretty damn close
      SECOND when did first week sales mean you don’t have a dope ass album the carter 3 sold a mill. and it was garbage what u just said is why hip hop is dying now you might not be a real hip hop fan but I appreciate him keeping hip hop alive fuck his first week sales

      • EReal

        If you think Game = Hiphop

        or that L.A.X. = Classic

        You should off yourself.

        Do some history, faggot. Game is a similie name drop weak ass lame. If you think ANY of his albums could stand next to The Firm, OBFCL, Supreme Clientel, Liquid Swords, or ANY Soundbombing compilation you’d be JOKING.

        Dont talk hiphop, if you dont even know what it is.

        “Internet Bully” dont you have some more knuckle shuffling to do before your mammy gets home and kisses you on the cheek with the lips she just milked my cow with? You are a lame to the umpteenth degree and we all laugh at you. Fuckin jagoff.

    LAX is a good album. 3 #1 Albums isnt bad at all. But how did he manage to be ranked 6th in the world in Madden? That explains why he didnt cut off the PS2 at 12:49.

    • ee-city

      read the editors sidenote, the game came in at #2
      speaking of #2 he might do down to # 3 because young jeezy’s album is a problem with only 4 features on it.

      • yo

        the young jeezy album is hot garbage homie…that album sounds like one long wack song

      • Cinsere

        Oh, gee, ee-city…super job calling me out on that…maybe I should’ve looked in my crystal ball and known the numbers would later be adjusted. One can only aspire to be as smart as you. Hey, maybe they’ll adjust those G-Unit numbers too! Wait…no…still a flop.

  • roger

    you dumb fucks don’t get it do you?
    all these sales are going to pay for all the guests on the album, then Dre and 50 get a cut, plus taxes. Game will be lucky to make more than a few hundred thousand. Pay attention to week 2. he’ll drop off 70%.
    That’s why Dre and 50 are millionaires and Game’s playing video games with Bow Wow. You faggots know this is the truth.

    • og bobby j

      co sign son….the ignorant people forget about the label, the budget, the advance and how he is owned under 2 additional contract (aftermath/G-unit). He might get enough money to get a new 64 impala to continually rap about…or a new face tattoo.

        Wow, at least I know two heads at XXLmag dot com that arent up their own asses. lol.

  • LEO

    I call Sabotage!!! GAME debuted at #2 after those motherflowers SLIPKNOT…still a great album tho…I wish we would stop worrying about niggas debuting on the charts and just worry about the albums being good or not…just cause it sells…doesnt mean its great (see The Carter 3)…and just cause it doesnt sell doesnt mean it aint…(see um…eveyrthing else?)

  • brick

    Oh yeah, one more thing. You think 50 really cares what Gayme sales? If Gayme’s albums sell well, that good business for both 50 and Dre, cause they both get 25% from the sales. If his albums don’t do well, well you get the picture.

  • Pingback: The Game's LAX album debuts at No. 1 on Billboard Charts. - Page 3 - Rap GodFathers Community

  • Nate

    Game’s debut is higher than probably the debut of 80% of all other rap artists albums in 2008. And that’s 35 weeks so far. If we went back and checked probably on 4-5 weeks have had a rapper debut higher. Lil Wayne isn’t a real RAPPER so he doesn’t really count… So to say Game sucks or should sell more is a idiotic way to think. He already outsold most everyone else this year on debut week. BTW-sales #’s are going to get worse before they get better. You can thank the music A&R’s and radio dj ho’s for that..

    Game has a good 3 album (major label) archive now so for a long drive you can bump those 3 albums and you are good. And that’s good production without overdoing it within just a 4 year period.

    • Tha Gr8est

      Gotz 2 disagree witcha. I ain’t sayin Lil Wayne no str8 up-and-down street nigga, but he go hard enough 2 make us get out there and cop it or burn it off tha net. Yeah, lil blood seems 2 b a real “Hot Boy”(remember that?). And for years I wouldn’t even listen 2 him. Until Money On My Mind and I don’t know which “The Carter” it came from. Nonetheless, I think he killed Hello Brooklyn. Killed it! And the boy ain’t slowed down yet. Remember: the best RAPPER alive since the rapper retired. And his old ass need to “Get Off the Corner”(Jay-Z).

    yo now i know people don’t know good music anymore. First Terminate On Sight which was a street album sold only 180,000 which is terrible as far as album sales goes. and now a solo album by The Game only pushes 238,832! This album had so much supporters and also a lot of good songs (just like T.O.S.) and it still goes really short of Gold let alone platinum status. Like the Carter III went platinum in 1 week. i understand lil wayne can spit hot bars but yo i bet u most people copped it just cuz they waz on the whole Weezy bandwagon. I mean is this what its all about in Rap/Hip Hop these days, people and what crew they support? like i’m guessing there were only a good 100.000 BWS riders on this one? and then the other 160,000 or so were fans of true good music, and vice versa for the T.O.S. album? damn if thats what its come to then its just really sad. like Soulja Boy’s shit went platinum and that album ain’t even rap. Like for real songs like Shawty Say are at the top of the charts these days! come on guys be real and buy the RAP albums like LAX and TOS. like im done talkin now, i have it figured out. i just feel bad for Jadakiss when he releases Kiss My Ass cuz thats probably only gonna sell like 80,000 first week and probably 300.000 overall. Damnn… i guess hip hop is dead

The fact is LAX was a good album, had great songs, and the only reason you wouldn’t like the album was if you rode 50′s dick. I’m gonna go out on a limb and say it was better than his first The Documentary. And you fags can hate all you want cuz I don’t give a shit bout a bunch of white boys on stupid computers acting all hard. If you like it then cool, if you don’t then you didn’t think it was that great. Simple as that. Quit getting caught up in stupid beefs.

    over 200,000 is good because not alot of rap artist could even sell that much but for game damn i mean the first album did over 500,000 units in the first week and now this nigga at he 200,000 mark…..but his album wasnt promoted right cause i didnt even know his album came until the day it came out, plus shit got pushed back and that shit with keyshia cole was solid but it shouldnt have been a first single to move units.

    50 Cent
    GRODT-12 million- Average rating 5/5
    The Massacre-10 million- Average rating 3/5
    Curtis-3 million- Average rating 2.5/5

    The Game
    The Documentary- 5 million Average rating 4.5/5
    Doctors Advocate- 1.5 million 4/5
    LAX-280000 first week, Average rating 4.5/5

    Say what you want about sells, but sells don’t mean shit. Game still has more quality albums than anything 50 cent put out. Soulja Boy sells more than someone like Joe Buddens or Crooked I, but it doesn’t mean that he’s a better rapper. Game haters are still trying to live in the G-Unit era which finally died when they got rid of Buck. Plus the only reason 50 Cent sold that much the first week on Curtis was because he was challenging Kanye (actually a smart business move by 50). Guranteed if 50 didn’t come out the same day as Kanye, his album sells less. Why didn’t TOS even come close to Curtis’ numbers?

    I wonder why dumb niggas come in here and blog about how much money another nigga is making? Who gives a flying fuck?! The Game’s album was decent, but, let’s be real the rap game is a joke. People actually think Lil Wayne is a rap legend and The Carter 3 was actually hot. I understand why oldheads dog the culture now, they’re right. I’m only 23 and I’m disgusted at how lame rap is becoming.
