The Game's The Documentary 2 beat its opening projections.
But not by enough to grab number one.
Hits Daily Double is reporting the much anticipated sequel album will do 94,529 sales plus streaming it its first week, after being projected to move between 80 and 85K. It lands second on the album charts, following Selena Gomez's Revival, which did 117,374.
It was a big week for Hip Hop overall. Boasted by his SNL appearance, The Weeknd's Beauty Behind The Madness saw a 42 percent jump from last week, finishing third at 84,493.
Fetty Wap's self-titled debut was fourth with 54,995 followed by Drake and Future's WATTBA with 53,206.
The Game gets another chance for a big opening this week with The Documentary 2.5.
