So, how much you think Advocate is going to sell in first week according to soundscan? I think he'll sell 420K. Documentary sold 586K in first week.

How I make a poll in this bitch?

lol @ you thinking he'll sell 420k his first week.

not happening dude.

peep soundscan as of lately and youll see people aint doin' numbers like that anymore.

itll be a miracle if he even sells 200,000 first week.

How ''lately'' do you mean? I'm pretty sure T.I. sold 520,000 his first week, with NO controversy. I think it's possible, just not likely.

I say about 350,000.

ATL grossed 21 mil.. Not bad, not great.

But the shit costed 17 mil to make (I dont know where the fuck the money went into)

LOL @ I'm bout it remake.
I'm bout it was a horrible movie with even worse acting than ATL. ATL at least 'looked' good, as in 'well-made'...

And the ''new'' hot saying is ''beef sells'' that alone could help Game's sales.

Also dont forget T.I. had a way bigger buzz prior to his album release and his album is better and more versatile imo. Game will probaly do about 150k the first week, its not the quality of the music no more that causes major sales remeber that..

200K max, and he'll be lucky if he can make it to 1000K in the end

1000K ?


I think this is easily the most anticipated album of the year, even more so than the Jay-Z album...

I'm thinking somewhere between 300-400K...

I think he'll do 100 or 130 thousand. Rap albums are not doin what they used to do. Plus its a straight west coast record. Alot of the East Coast fans are not goin to buy this album.

Remember this when it comes down to Game vs 50 Cent
50 Cent's two albums sold 20 million combined
Game one album sold 4 million. And alot of that was because 50 Cent was still hot. So people including me and you bought Game because 50's buzz was still large at that time. And Game also appealed to the East Coast markets.

Now that he has dissed the ROC, Joe Buddens (who East Coast people love), 50 Cent (the biggest sellin artist in rap music), and made an album with only two east coast songs. He will not sell as huge as his first album. Plus he has no strong radio singles playin across the country. They play on the west coast but not really no where else. So he will probably go platinum maybe!!! But the first week I expect 100,000 most likely. With a quick drop in sales the following weeks after because of the new Snoop Dogg and Jay-Z albums coming out.

But thats my opinion and observation on the industry!
