MediaTakeOut.com just caught wind that G-Unit's new album Terminate On Sight is going to sell far more the execs over at Interscope imagined. According to the record label's projections Terminate On Sight could sell more than 700,000 units. We say "could sell" because it's not clear that the label even produced 700,000 units to be sold.
How can MediaTakeOut.com be so sure of what we're saying .... well because an email was sent out last week from a Interscope exec who said exactly that. Here's the email in its entirety:

Guys we understand u are pissed, all we can say is 2nd week #s will be out of here.
We acknowledge we SIGNIFICANTLY underestimated the G unit fan base and online awareness. Therefore we have ordered an immediate increase in production, effective 9am today. Early first week estimates stand at around 700K to 800K US.... We are working to rectify the international shortcomings and put product in place by early next week. Don will be in touch.
We don't understand. 50 Cent and G-Unit are among the most popular hip hop artists in the world. How can someone at the label underestimate their sales? 50 has the right to spazz out and bust somebody in the head....
Our advice to all you G-Unit fans - go out and get a copy of the album FAST ... while supplies last ....
Lol, nevermind 3rd. And G-Unit aint been hot around here in years
Album is fire!
f-these ***!ggaz man.
g unit fell off already..50 need to stick to his other hustles
that ish gonna be lame
*** E X T !
THAT BOY, 50 DOING IT, *** BUCK!!!
This is ma publicity stunt to get people to run out and "get their copy". I have to give it to them, it's creative marketing
They are not selling 700K in the first week even if Universal shipped 20 million units UNLESS 50 Cent bought 600K of them.
HA! God don't like Ugly N*GGaz Named FIDDY- u fool!
I VE HAD IT SINCE FRIDAY...BEEN BANGIN IT ALL WEEKEND...ITS AIGHT...SHOULD B MORE 5TH ON IT BUT I KNO HE'S TRYIN 2BLOW BANKS AND YAYO UP MORE...HIP HOP MAY BE BACK ALIVE CONSIDERING WAYNE AND THE UNIT'S SUCCESS...ITS THAT RINGTONE RAP THAT WAS KILLIN IT...AND IT STARTED IN THE SOUTH...NORFEAST HOMIE...ALL DAY...ALL NITE
DONT BELIEVE THAT ***..THIS ABLUM IS GAHBAGE!
SOUNDS LIKE MTO IS WORKING WIT G UNIT . I DONT BELIEVE THEY GON SELL 700 ***... GO OUT AND GET THE ALBUM QUICK ?? GTFOH
The only way G-Unit could do those numbers is buying the CD's themselves. . .and 50 would be to embarrassed to flop so of course they'll do at least 400k.
THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN, LOOK AROUND. . .IT'S OVER!
I'VE HEARD THE ALBUM...& I THINK ITS PRETTY GOOD QUALITY...COMPARED TO OTHER G-UNIT ALBUMS...IT ACTUALLY SOUNDS MORE LIKE ONE OF THERE FIRE A $ $ MIXTAPES THEY USE TO COME OUT WITH BEFORE THEY HIT IT BIG!
but that would be a huge dissappointment if the retailers didn't have enough copies of the music in order to feed the supply & demand...i dont know whats up with these label's nowadays..there ill equipped to actually propelling people's careers where they need to be...its all about that one hit wonder sh-it we live in a "MICROWAVEABLE SOCIETY"!
FOR SOME REASON MTO I DONT BELIEVE YALL BUT IF THEY DID YAYYY ;)
ANYWAY IM GOING TO WAIT FOR HITSDAILY REPORT THEY USUALLY ON POINT ANYWAY NEXT...
IS IT JUST ME CUZ 50 LOOKS SWEET IN THIS PIC...LIKE A SISSY THAT GOT DUMPED BY HIS MAN
Who is buying all these records? If almost everyone here said they dont want it, how are they selling so well? Somebody lying! You dont have to be scared to be a G-unit fan. You have to be *** but not scared.

DMV AREA=DC/MD/VA=The BEST!

FREE LLoyd Banks from G-Unit
This album is fire... now i can't wait for the Nas!
OH F*CK THAT *** ALBUM TIRED OF G UNIT ALREADY ALL OF THESE *** WATERED DOWN RAPPERS
Oh darn, I was so excited to get a copy...
Please, I wouldn't buy this mess if my life depended on it.
Something about the way he's standing screams(((I'm ***)))
OH BOO HOO!
G-Unit is trash and the album is gonna be trash, you don't have to worry about me standing in line, that's for dam sure! They will probably sell out in everywhere BUT the hood.
COOL PIC LOL 50 LOOKS MAD ;)
ANYWAY IM ABOUT TO GO COP IT AND WAYNE ALBUM ;)
ITS TIME FOR 50 TO GET HIS WEIGHT BACK UP NOW ;)
I will get a free bootleg from my brother. 50 doesn't need any of my money. If it's fire, I will I will be first to congratulate the East on finally coming back hard. I will give it a review.
this is great marketing... "Everyone go get a copy before they sell out!!" .... mmmmhmm..
I HEARD THE ALBUM BANGING...........MYSPACE.COM/DOLOMITE
Wow that's not cool if true. Wow what are they doing at these labels nowadays.
I Dont See How They're Running Out! The Album Is G-G-G-Garbage!
*** YEA RIGHT.
THEY AINT SELLIN THAT MANY. LOL. ***. THIS IS JUST ANOTHER PLOY TO SELL ALBUMS.
I GOT ONE WORD, LOL
GIVE IT UP. I WOULDNT EVEN DOWNLOAD THAT ***.
The album is better than the mess they are playing on the radio...At least they are talking about something...can't hate on them...sorry people. I have the album...it is a banger!
WHO IS BUYING THAT ISH... HE'LL BE LUCKY IF I SPEND 2.50 ON THE BOOTLEGG... NICCCAAA
I seriosly doubt they could push 700k...even with total sales, i don't think they could see that.
They don't have much to talk about but i'll support, i fux w/ 50....don't know why...probably b/c of who he was
WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOAWHOAWHOA.....lol
& 50 lookin a tad slim in this pic
That's crazy! 50 don't get no bump in the hood anymore, but every album he drops still goes platinum. You got to understand that 50 and G-Unit have a very loyal fan base (the white people, lmao!) And as long as u got them on your side your album is going to sell. Am I the only one that is confused about how the hell 50 has all this power in the industry that he does?
Ummmm... G Unit fans?
BTW, looks like Lloyd's been eating all of 50's meals...
All I gotta say is *** 50
i was mad @ 50 for that bucc tape *** but then i thought about it,bucc said *** g unit first so i would of did the same,bucc *** of said *** g unit,he took the first *** so wtf did he expect,but yea go get the album
GET THAT NEW G-UNIT ALBUM AT DJ-NOTORIOUS-SAM.BLOGSPOT.COM GIVE ME A *** ON MY WEBPAGE
While yall Hatin Im Bangin this new T.O.S album ***!
Just bought 2 and i cant fron the lp is hot!
dont hate! especially yall *** in the south,sorry but this lp contains NO dance moves to any of the songs! just real rap
50 and his team are smart this is just another way 50 gains momentum to leave the company when the album doesn't sell he can blame interscope once again ,the singles for the album aren't even on the radio like that and he knows it will flop so he put it out there ahead of the reports how does a e-mail like that get leaked? they send hundreds of those daily but this 1 some how got out there ,they believe in the power of the rumor mill
ain't no way in hell they sold 700 *** legitimately...the buzz for this *** wasn't even close to the Carter 3 release...all i gotta say is, pay attention to the 2nd week sells...and its funny, cuz 50 stay talkin bout how *** be buyin they own *** and yet he doin the same lol...and like charmcity said, only folks he did buy that *** in masses was white folks...so then again they might have legitimately sold that, u know those lil white kids love dat fake gangsta ***
big up, to all. i'm going to try to stay natural here i'm not for or against 50, i'm going to review the album and report to you guys if it's buyable. i'm listening to it now i'll give you my review of it sometime later today.
Sorry badboy i beat you to it. i listen to the album and i must say it ok, not the best that could have put forward some of the beats were good but not the kind that's a hit(sorry 50) so i give it a 3 stars. it may sell but we aren't going to buy , i'm a big 50 cent fan and tried my best to like it but it's a average album. i highly doubt it will sell that much. so until next Tuesday see you my peeps.
take out defintly working wit 50 *** the crew,come on my peeps, labels dont be messin up like this,its all 4 the paper$$ its funny tho how 50 gots money and he still wanna be greedy and do what he gotta do 2 get more,YOUNG BUCK,U GOTS TO BE SICK ,BEIN PART OF THE LIVEST CREW ,AND NOW SITTIN BACK WATCHIN,THATS A SUICIDE MISSION IF U ASK ME..............
PUBLICITY STUNT... ya'll let 50 Cents fool yall if you want, this dude is praying he even sells half a million...
1. He's not hot like Lil Wayne (who sold 1 million) or Kanye (who outsold him in the battle).
2. Lately his name has been in repeated drama...Young Buck, his babymama, Fat Joe, etc... this is a way to maintain controversy or in other words, keep his name in people's mouths...great marketing strategy...
50 is not hot! Lil Wayne and Kanye are!!! GUNIT is washed up!
50, stop sending MTO emails and ***... you know you wrong for this one... This type of email should never be leaked out to the public....
fake email... mto stop makin' *** up.
50 cent look like a skinny *** 13 year old in this picture...ha ha
this album gonna flop. these lamers aint ben hot for a minute now so the amount of discs that they have now is all theygonna need & then some worldwide.
i just checked my soundscan account and Coldplay will be the top selling cd this week mto...and they have only 170,000 units sold thus far.
@jaybaby, 50 got off those roids and now he is getting skinny. He starting to look a little crackish!!!!!!!
Album is hot..
MAN PLEASE 50 PROBABLY BUYING HIS OWN ALBUMS I DONT SEE HOW THIS GUNIT *** IS HOT !!
It goes Gold but there is no way that with the holiday week, a recession, and all the downloading of albums that this sells 700k in its' first week.
The recession and downloading got *** afraid to put out albums now.
MTO this is ***!! 50 couldn't even sell 700k units of his Curtis album in the first week, so do you actually think this one is gonna sell? B 4 real *** and Banks are garbage!! It took him almost 2 months for Curtis to go platinum and he promised us that he would retire after going up against Kanye....damnit I'm still waiting for him to announce his retirement.
MTO, your main office must be up in 50's mansion! Ya'll pushing hard for 50 everyday. I guess the Unit needed help pushing that album.Why when Wayne went 900+ ya'll said "the label was the reason, cause they bought his joint." But fif's label jerked him and made a big mistake! Come on Bro, 50's one of the biggest artist on Interscope, so it's not gonna happen....
good i hope they do run out - that's what he gets after doin that to my boy buck...imma buy a bootleg copy tho - just cuz of banks and buck - 50 been whack for years and haha won't outdo weezy.
Good for them! HI HATERS! G-unit is still the best! GRRRRRRRRRR!
WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA!
WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA!

G-G-G-GARBAGE UNIT! sorry to tell all the 50 cent groupies, but these ***!ggaz is trash and is a key reason why rap music is in the shape its in 2day.
The G-unit reign has been over! I doubt it sells 70,000 this week,lol.
Yea right... How the hell Gunit is gonna be projected to sell more than 700k Units when 50, who is the best selling dude on that label, last cd wasn't even projected to sell THAT much? Do they think people are stupid? Come on now with that junior high marketing plan. I highly doubt that they will sell that many units in two months, let alone a freakin week. That cd has no promotion. The singles are floppin. That *** is extremely wack. Only Gunit hoes will go out and cop that record. It is not a classic, it's not even worthy of a title. Talking about the record company didn't make enough cds. WHATEVEVR. Companies make projections weeks before the cd is suppose to come out. They make more cds than the actual number that was projected. G UNIT sent yall that fake *** email. OMG, it isn't even professional at all! Then 50 cent has the nerve to say bloggers are haters but this the same *** who is running to a blog site for free promotion. He's wack. He just needs to sit his in the closet *** down.
Banks & Yayo were on the radion this morning & no one said anything about this ***.. I'll say thye can do about 400,000 1st week but 700 is really pushin it.
They all look like a different breed of monkey...
from left to right
Chimpanzee, APE, Gorilla
I won't be buying it. NEXT!

mto how much did 50 pay ya'll to put up this post?
The albums fire......but can anyone explain to me how 50 became the smallest dude out of the crew.
CANT BELIEVE THEY WILL SELL THAT MANY....THEY SUCK
king of ny kiss our grits!
50 babymama got 'em losing weight...stress!
gggggggggggg unit 4 life tos *** carter tos doing tings
LOL!!! Boy you look like you're in the last stages.
You got dat PACK!!
MTO how much money did G-Unit pay yall to post this BS story?? For real...how much?? No one's going to be buying G-Unit cd's like that. A shame that they have to go through such lenghts to create a buzz to sell albums! Ugh.
YEAH RIGHT THAT LETTER WAS LEAKED, THAT'S SUM GOOD MAKETING THOUGH, YEAH RIGHT THEY WOULDN'T MAKE ENOUGH G-UNIT ALBUMS TO SELL BIG. *** ON NOW DON'T PEE ON ME AND TELL ME IT'S RAINING. BETTA GET CHO COPY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.....SO I CAN SELL A MIL IN A WEEK.....G TF O OH LMBAO YALL GOOD! BUT IT'S SAD THAT MOST PEOPLE WILL FALL FOR IT. GOOD JOB YALL WAY TO SELL RECORDS, MAKE IT HAPP ***, CAPTIN!!!

*** out to my boy Dame Taylor!!!. He Produced #11 on the cd. "Party Aint Over"...FIRE!!!!!
Ok, kewl, 50 gonna *** lookin
700,000 units?...If they're lucky. I heard their first single on the radio a few weeks ago. And I must say IT IS GAH-BIGE!
2 words "VITAMIN WATER"!!!
G-Unit sux! They use controversy to try and sell albums and sadly, they used Young Buck as a scapegoat this go round.
Yall need a sexy female Lez in G unit
Check out this song on myspace and guess who it really is! Song titled "Girlz" by a GIRL! A Hot lez song! WHAT?
yo who gives a *** if they sell 50k or 700k if they do it then congrats to them.I'm too busy trying to get my own money then to come on here and hate on these dudes all day.Majority of ya'll on here saying that they are garbage are the ones i see in the club doin the superman and ***.how hood is that?
that album is banger...fall back with all the hate..I have never seen sooo many swoll *** people in my life!
Forget record sales... wtf going on with 5-0 every since that steroid story he's been gettin smaller and smaller guess he hasn't found a new connect yet
people still listen to G UNOT? I mean no offense, but i guess they makin money either way so big ups!
*** there is a lot of hate 4 50 cent..No lie this is the best rap album I heard in a while..Banks is at the top of his game..this album made me realize that *** fifty is a genius...I'm gonna cop another one 2day..T.O.S...U SO TOUGH..hardest song period...
DID ANYONE ELSE NOTICE 50 HAS GOTTEN ALOT SMALLER. MAYBE THE STEROIDS "RUMOR" WAS TRUE
The album is dope as hell, if I wouldve known there was a "***" I wouldn't have bought 3 copies...my bad :/
Pay back is a B-i-t-c-h, What goes around come back around. I know some people feel that 50 was right, and some feel he was wrong. No matter what Young Buck did 50 was wrong for releasing that tape of Buck. You don't have to answer to man, But you still have to answer to God, 50 feel that he have so much money he will never go broke Or be like Buck, This is your pay back and more to come watch. God said let me fight your battle. That's why he going threw so much with his baby mama. Wait till his Cd come out, Something else going to happen. I like G-unit But, Karma is real.
g g g g unit!!! hey yal pliz sign up on my site,www.thalegionofdoom.ning.com,soon it wil be .com, i need administrators
WHAT PART OF THE GAME IS THAT.... I GUESS HATE IS THE NEW LOVE... YALL NUCKERS CANT WAITE TO HATE.. INSTEAD OF JUDGING THE PRODUCT ON IS OWN... YALL JUST WANT TO SPEW HATE... I GUESS THATS BLACK FOLKS FOR YA...I SEE NUCKER HATTING ON WAYNE JUST FOR WINNING, IT LOOKS LIKE ANY NUCKER WHO'S WINNING, YALL WANNA HATE... TELL ME ONE RAPPER WHO MAKE BETTER STREET MUSIC, RETURN OF THE BODY SNATCHERS STRAIGHT CLASIC AND BETTER THEM 90% OF THE ALBUMS THAT CAME OUT OR COMING OUT THIS YEAR!!!!
THIS IS THE MOST *** PIC I HAVE EVR SEEN OF THESE KATS...YAYO I HOPE YOU READ THIS...CAUSE YOU ARE THE WACKEST RAPPER I HAVE EVER HEARD...AND THATS REAL..AND BANKS...I DON'T KNOW TO SAY ABOUT YOU...YOU FRUITY AZZ ***!GGA...YALL NEED TO RETIRE
Does my boy 50 have that illness? His face is so drawn. That picture awhile ago with the missing eyebrows made me wonder if he has that V lurking inside. Hope not! Something just ain't the same. He may be falling off but I still hate the big cheek, blow fish face Kanye. He's a REAL cornball.
50 is a Bytch... Let's not forget how his wanna act hard cause he got muscles a$$ likes to stir up *** b4 he drops an album. It's all a publicity stunt *** him and that bogus number they created 700k... Psssst!!! (YEA RIGHT)I betcha it was some1 on the G ay unit team that leaked that *** on purpose, just so you dumb *** i g g as go grab the album. Imma bootleg that *** and hit a couple gas stations, and buy me some "Strange" = Kush. REAL TALK!!!! Don't believe the hype.
@ Miza *** Baby I feel you that's what 'm sayin. These peeps are missing the whole thing!
If G-Unit really wanted to sell some units they'd have something like this on their squad..... myspace.com/predotsisewp
Yeah right!!! If I wanna hear quality sh!t I'll buy Young Buck's album instead. They did that to him because he's the only one from their group from Tennessee.... and.... ontop of that... Buck and The Game were the only ones from that group that didn't look like they belonged in a fcukin zoo. 700K Units... Psshh, please.
Try 110 thousand.
a lotta people on here either are just haters or have bad taste in music. that g-unit cd is on fire. went to two stores all was sold out i just got the last copy at circuit city. thats the best cd to come out from the east in a looong since american Gangster by Jay. from the intro to the end everything bangs hard. east coast lyricism and style throughout, non of that down south *** dance ***. real *** dont wanna hear that snap music or those dudes that make a dance to sell. if it sells 700,000 congrats to G unit to makin a good album. i am not a lil wayne fan but he did manage to go plat so thats a good look for rap music and black sales in 2008. why do black people who arent making no money hating on 50 cause he 500 million man? if you say this cd wack something is wrong. this aint no soulja boy booty meat *** *** music. this that east coast sound that dominated rap for years. im glad this cd good G unit, and Nas bringing back that real hip hop back.. Nas - *** next week. July is gonna be a good month for Hip Hop. Hip Hop is reborn...wake up.
50 looks slimer because he losing weight for a movie about hurricane katrina.. he not on drugs. black people always want to see their people doing wrong. reading is fundamental

*** THE HATE IS INSANE!!!
He lost the weight for a movie, and I doubt it does 700k the 1st week. Curtis did 700k something the 1st week and group albums never do as much.
*** aint even listen to the album and going crazy like 50 smashed they mommas. Relax, its not that serious. Its funny yall hating like this on them like they killing hiphop when yall go out and snap and roll to Soulja Boy all ***. If you going to hate like its your job at least hate on this snap *** thats killing hiphop.
Bottom line this is one of the best rap albums so far this year but its not commercial its a dark album like their old material.
Rap Sucks.The south killed Hip-Hop The East Killed Hip-Hop The North Killed Hip-Hop,The West Killed Hip-Hop. Too many suburban white boys and yuppies,and japs involved.Got to take it back to the way it was when you had to be in the know to hear it!
