The Game’s latest body of work may not have landed in the top spot on the Billboard 200 like three of his previous projects, but the new collection did make a major mark on several other charts.
1992 debuted at #1 on the Independent Albums Chart, the Rap/Hip Hop Albums chart, and the Rap Albums chart.
Game’s eighth studio LP opened at #2 on Top Album Sales chart behind Kings Of Leon’s Walls.
As far as the Billboard 200, Game arrives at #4 with 32,000 album-equivalent units and 24,000 traditional sales.
“I’m most appreciative to my Real fans who are the ones that have been pushing me through for the past decade,” says the Compton rapper in a statement. “1992 was inspired by my childhood when I was 12 years old coming into my teenage years in a city that was plagued by gang activity and a nation that was racially divided. To understand my life, you have to understand how I survived.”
The Game is set to start the European leg of his “Block Wars Tour” in November.
