Game de-thrones Jay-Z and Kanye West, "R.E.D." takes Top Spot

Throughout his career, Game has been taking shots at Jay-Z. His reasons for going at Jay-Z usually vary. However, Game has been more focused than ever to top Jay-Z. Recently, Game admitted he was a big fan of Jay-Z, but not fond of his attitude.

Jay-Z made a quick return to the rap game, when he and Kanye West teamed up for Watch the Throne. Early this month, the much-discussed album was released. As expected, Watch the Throne topped the charts and became a major success.

Now, in its third week, sales have slowed down a bit. At the same time, Game's long-awaited fourth studio album, The R.E.D. Album, was released. The album recently replaced Watch the Throne as the number one album on Billboard. This is Game's first number one album since his debut, The Documentary, released in 2005.

Game needs a miracle to stay on top of the charts, as Lil Wayne's Tha Carter IV is expected to sell between 700,000 and 850,000 copies in its first week. The R.E.D. Album has sold a little over 97,000 copies in its first week.
