The Game Pleased with R.E.D. Album Sales

The Game was in reminiscing mode as he took a look back at his summer 2011 release R.E.D. Album, and spoke on the LP not reaching platinum status as of yet. 

Regardless of not hitting a million sales, the Compton native says he's content with the numbers the LP has put up so far.

"We about to put out the last video for The R.E.D. Album. The R.E.D. Album exceeded my expectations and did well. No matter what an album comes out and sells the first week, it'll end up catching platinum in the long run, 'cause I definitely have a million fans out there somewhere. I don't know what they be doing the first week, but my albums always have legs. But just for that album to come out and be No. 1, that's all I wanted. So I got what I wanted. And we shot the last video with Kendrick Lamar to "The City."

When the album hit retailers in August of 2011, it went on to sell close to 100,000 copies in its first week and debuted at number one on the charts. 

"West Coast rapper Game's The R.E.D. Album debuted this week at No. 1. According to Nielsen SoundScan, the rapper's fourth solo LP has sold 97,900 units to date. Jay-Z and Kanye West's Watch the Throne moved 94,200 records in its third week."

Up until this point, the album is said to have hit just over 200,000 copies.

The Game is also preparing his next project titled F.I.V.E.: Fear Is Victory's Evolution, which he says could be his last album through Interscope Records.

"You know Interscope/Aftermath, that's my label and I'ma hold it down for them forever. I've been there for four albums, and I've got one more album before I'm a free agent. We're gonna try and turn that one around real quick, then I'll make the executive decision on what I'll do with the rest of my career. I might get into acting, I might go over to Cash Money. You never know."

The album currently has no release date as of yet.
