Earlier reports of stating that The Game’s album L.A.X. was the best selling album in the country have turned out to be incorrect, due to an error in Neilsens Soundscan reports.
According to a representative for SoundScan, the companys original sales figures were off, due to the Labor Day holiday weekend, which caused a delay in sales data, which was posted online.
Metal group SlipKnots album All Hope Is Gone actually took the #1 spot on Billboards Top 200 Albums chart, selling 239,516 copies.
The Games third album L.A.X. sold 238,382 copies and was beaten out by only 1,134 units.
Although he scored a controversial #2 chart position on The Game still landed a #1 chart debut for a third time, topping the Hip-Hop/R&B Chart.
Adamant to fans and media alike this will be his last album, Game feel assured that this album is a fitting end to his legacy as a solo artist and quiets critics who questioned his songwriting ability.
Being #1 for the third time makes me feel good, especially since I put my all into this album, a proud Game explained to AllHipHop.com. There should be no doubt by the critics if a label, producer or hook singer can stagger my ability to make songs or an album. I hope my fans enjoy this one more than others, because this one defines me, my life, and my place in Hip-Hop.
On iTunes alone, the album sold 130, 000 copies the first day of release.
L.A.X. features a staggering guest list of todays top Hip-Hop and R&B stars: Lil Wayne, Nas, Ice Cube, DMX, Ludacris, Common Raekwon, Chrisette Michele, Raheem DeVaughn, Bilal, Ne-Yo, LaToya Williams, and Keyshia Cole.
