Contest: Predict the album sales of Young Jeezy's <i>The Recession</i>

Last week, saw the release of The Game's new album LAX. This week's major hip-hop release comes from Young Jeezy, who will release his third album The Recession on September 2.

 

We're slightly switching things up for this contest, in addition to predicting how many copies of The Recession will sell in its debut week, also predict if first week sales of Jeezy's The Recession will be higher than The Game's first week sales for LAX.

 

The prize is a $20 Amazon gift certificate and bragging rights for the week. Please note that only registered users will be in the running.

 

Also, enter the album sales contest for The Game's LAX.

Contest:
  • Predict in the comments if Young Jeezy's new album, The Recession, will sell more album in its first week than The Game's first week sales of LAX.
  • Also predict how many copies of The Recession will be sold during its first week.
  • Predictions after Sunday (September 7, 2008 will be disqualified). 

Prize:
  • $20 gift certificate to Amazon.com

Additional Notes:
*The winner will correctly predict which album between The Recession and LAX will have higher first week sales.

**Whoever is closest to actual sales figures from Soundscan. No Price Is Right rules in effect (i.e. you can still win if your guess is over the actual sales figures.)
***This contest is open to everyone, including Prefix staffers.

1.The Recession will outsell LAX.
2.500,000 IN THE FIRST WEEK

Donta Street

U guys are freaking stupid! Game is almost 10 times platinum with just two albums! Jeezy is tight but he is close to three times platinum with two albums. Game can outsell jeezy just with his name.

jeno

I think there's been a shift and Jeezy's going to sell more this time out.

/site_media/uploads/images/users/daba/me-bermudajpg.jpg Daba

1.) I'll say RECESSION will outsell (as great as I personally think LAX is).

1)he will not out sell the game
2)he will probably sell around 250,000

/site_media/uploads/images/users/prefix/no-user-pic.gif yankeepride456

Game only sold more because he was in g-unit and they were huge at the time. but nice try

first week 300,000

alex

the game second album sold 358,988 its first week

young jeezy second album sold 352,000

now that is not a large margin but will be tough the game album is good but to many features on a cd defeat the purpose of the talent of the artist

young jeezy album is good as well and keep it with least the three features and put out a good single out
so i chose young jeezy with at least 250,000
while the game 200,000.

poetwm

The recession is theone of the kind it will sell 2million with no problems

Booda

it don't matter how much u sell in first week? most of the features on game's album are just for the hooks. come on man game is raw jeezy is wack. recession soundthe same to me man. lax will outsell recession in the end by over 300,000 copies

u know

The Recession will outsell the L.A.X. The lax is just a whole bunch of samples put together with decent lyrics..... nothing more.

BIG-E

L.A.X. is one of the best rap release of the year.

First of all the only reason the game was ever platinum was because of 50,and 50 was huge at the time. The game sucks and his records do too.

1. The Recession will outsell LAX (Due the lack of Excessive Name Dropping) and the fact that it is a superior album without Lil Wayne or T-Pain.

2. The Recession will sell 417,000 first week

1- Recession wont outsell L.A.X
2- 287,869 :D

Amin

Lol you need to read the news more, because Amin not to flame you or anything but with those numbers Recession already beat LAX, LAX(according to Billboard.com) sold 238,382 its first week :D I think it's called LAX because it "LAX" good material...lol. Jeezy will top him hands down, you know who knocked him to #2? Slipknot..(for you who dont know, Slipknot is a masked metal band who has never had a #1 debut album) so if tose metalheads from Iowa can beat "The Game" then you know The Snowman is going to crush his numbers. Case closed. 417,000 and on the way....

Jeezy Hard as hell, i don't care what no one talkin bout. Jeezy is the hardest rapper out right now. No other jezzy is even close to Jeezy.Jeezy been on some of the hottest collabo's between 07-08 so far. Jeezy spit the realest lyrics and is tha realest. I bought the recession and was not disappointed. the whole cd straight fire. Real hood S**t. Plus the Recession out sold more than lax anyway- JUST CHECK THE BILLBOARD CHARTS, JEEZY #1. Jeezy gettin his money. JEEZY THE BEST!
