Tyga can’t seem to escape controversy no matter what lengths he goes to this year, whether it be dating Kylie Jenner, sending explicit pictures to a transgender male or frustrations with his label. Let’s just say it’s been a rough year for T-Raww, and to add insult to injury he only sold a meager 2,200 copies of The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty in its’ first week. The “Ayo” rapper’s boss Birdman is far from impressed, and thinks releasing the album was a deliberate attempt at getting out of his deal with Cash Money Records.
According to TMZ:
We’re told Birdman’s fuming because Tyga encouraged fans to listen to songs from “The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty” on free music streaming services, like Spotify — a move Birdman did NOT approve.
Our sources say the Cash Money honcho thinks Tyga sunk his album — which sold just 2,200 copies in its first week — because everyone could listen to the songs for free. By comparison, Tyga’s last record sold nearly half a million copies.
We’re told Birdman thinks Tyga purposely pulled the “childish” stunt … to get out of his deal, and go sign with Lil Wayne — but Birdman’s not counting this album. That means Tyga would still owe him another one.
Do you think Birdman is right about Tyga? Let us know in the comment box below!
