Amerikaz Nightmare is the sixth studio album by hip-hop duo Mobb Deep. The album was released on Jive Records, through a deal with the group’s own imprint. It features the singles "Got It Twisted" and "Real Gangstaz." The album debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200 with approximately 109,000 copies sold in its first week of release. The album sold around 400,000 copies.[7] The album is seen as one of the duo's weaker releases, and the poor album sales are because of the lack of promotion and distribution the group received from its record label.[citation needed]
