I keep tellin people Cali is like a whole different country. Any rapper that got the whole cali's support is goin to win. Theirs not that many mainstream artists there to compete with like NY, ATL, MIA, TX as far as big cities go. That's y the Game was winning for a minute and he's a average rapper.
And to people thats ask y it took so long? U must not kno sh*t about album sales. First this was his debut not to many went plat on their debut. Second not to many of the most popular rappers are breakin platium either in a whole year. And last he did not even comprise his sound to do it. Stop the hatin and d!ck riding. The true definition of d!ck riding.
