The Twitter world was in an uproar yesterday after word spread about Troy Ave’s first week sales for his debut album Major Without A Deal. The project only sold 4,500 copies, including only 30 as physical copies. Although Troy Ave had a few major features on his album including 50 Cent, Ty Dolla $ign, Jeezy, Fabolous, T.I., A$AP Ferg, Rick Ross and Cam’ron, his first week album sales still did not do that well.
After news spread about Troy Ave’s meek album sales, the Twitter world had a field day with the Brooklyn MC making fun of his low debut sales. The BK native then went on Twitter to release some tension. To defend himself, he claimed that he probably made $30,000 last week compared to others who probably didn’t make a dime.
