It’s rough out here in hip-hop. One day you’re headlining* Summer Jam. The next day, you’re laughing stock.
Troy Ave released Major Without A Deal, his sophomore album, on June 5. The Neilsen Soundscan numbers are in. They’re bad. Real bad.

Major Without A Deal sold 4,373 digital copies…and just 30 physical copies. Twitter was savage.
30 copies, though. How many people live on Troy Ave’s block? pic.twitter.com/2TNVRXYQ5P

Im indifferent on Troy Ave. But I totally understand people enjoying him flopping. Dude can be a bit of a jerk sometimes. — Larry Beyince (@DragonflyJonez) June 11, 2015
To be fair, there’s been many other bad debut weeks in recent years — Angel Haze (less than 1,000) and Kreayshawn (3,900 copies) come to mind. That said, if you want to be LeBron, you have to put up the numbers.
*Troy Ave somehow managed to get a five-minute set after headliner Meek Mill went off. It’s something.
