Finally, some good news Game would appreciate this week. The Compton, Calif., rhyme-spitter dethroned Jay-Z and Kayne West‘s two-week reign atop of the Billboard 200 album chart with his fourth LP ‘The R.E.D. Album.’

The collection debuted at No. 1 after moving 98,000 copies in its first week of release. This is Game’s third No. 1 album of his career. “[I’m] so f—-n’ happy right now I dont know what the f— 2 do!” Mr. Chuck Taylor tweeted to his fans. “Thank yall again from the bottom of MY HEART! Lamborghinis 4 EVERYBODY lol.”

Cool! We would like a Lamborghini in all yellow, please, and tricked out the rims while you’re at it. Thanks!

Game’s reign at the top may be short-lived as Lil Wayne‘s ‘Tha Carter IV’ is expected to premiere at No. 1 next week with reported sales numbers between 850,000 to 900,000 copies. Wow! If those stats hold up, than Weezy fans really do buy albums.

Despite being bumped down to No. 2, Hov and Yeezy’s ‘Watch the Throne’ album moved 94,000 copies and so far has sold 707,000 units in its third week of release. It shouldn’t be long before the rap kings enter the platinum (1 million) zone.

So far, it has been a very good summer for buying rap music.
