Game Reps Say 50 Won't Stop 'L.A.X.'

A representative from Compton-based MC The Game has come forward to deny reports that the rapper’s forthcoming album may be pushed back from its original release date of June 24.

The buzz is fueled by G-Unit frontman 50 Cent, who threatened to block the release of The Game’s L.A.X., should the album be released at the same time as G-Unit’s upcoming release Terminate On Site.

Despite the claims, the label representative stated that The Game will indeed have something to offer fans this summer.

“We have no intentions to move our album date of June 24,” a representative for The Game told AllHipHop.com. “If we do move it, it will be 50 Cent and G-Unit’s lucky day, but I doubt if The Game is into answering G-Unit’s prayers.”

In a recent interview with MTV, 50 Cent stated that he believed G-Unit’s new album Terminate on Sight will easily triumph over Game’s L.A.X., should the two factions square off on the same day in stores.

“I’ma wait a little, then I’m just gonna push his album back,” the rapper told MTV.com. “I don’t think there’s anyone that would legitimately look at him like it’s a competition, him versus G-Unit. It just doesn’t make sense. I make money every time he releases an album. He signed a five-album deal. He’s only on album three.”

50 Cent’s conflict with The Game isn’t the first time the New York native has gone one on one with a fellow rapper in the battle for SoundScan supremacy.

Just last year, 50 Cent and Kanye West squared off by releasing albums on the same day.

West’s Graduation ultimately won the battle by selling 957,000 copies over 50 Cent’s Curtis, which moved 691,000 units in the first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan figures.

Both albums were released on Sept. 11, 2007.
