Trippie Redd Disses ‘C-List’ Rappers for Low Album Sales, Wants to Come Together as ‘Avengers of Trash’
Trippie Redd went on social media to diss who he called “C-list rappers” for their low album sales and called them the “Avengers of trash.”
On Friday (April 15), Trippie went to his Instagram Story to share his thoughts on artists in the game who aren't racking up big numbers.
“I need all the C-list rappers, we ’bout to create the Avengers of Trash, niggas,” he said. “Nigga, we gon’ sell what? If we all put our 30,000 first week together, we gonna make a milli, nigga!”
Trippie didn’t name any specific rappers in his IG post.
Over the last few weeks, there have been a few artists caught in low album sales predictions.
Last Friday (April 8), several rappers dropped their new projects, however, industry forecasters from Hits Daily Double predicted on April 14 that some of them won’t deliver high enough sales to top the Billboard 200 album chart next week. Fivio Foreign's B.I.B.L.E., 42 Dugg & EST Gee's Last Ones Left and Coi Leray's Trendsetter included.
Fivio Foreign was mocked about his projected album sales by 6ix9ine. Last Wednesday (April 13), the reportedly broke rapper popped up on social media and poked fun at Fivio’s forecasted album sales total of 29,000 equivalent albums for his debut project, B.I.B.L.E. Tekashi saw the news on an Instagram blog and decided to slander Fivio in the comment section.
"This y’all king?" 6ix9ine wrote. "Not blackballed, all those features, the whole industry promoted that and now you Kanye and nicki sidekick even they even tried to help you promote."
Coi Leray is expected to come in with 11,000 equivalent album sales in the first week for her debut album, Trendsetter. Although the sales figures haven’t been finalized, it was enough for critics to downplay the 2021 XXL Freshman's LP release.
Nevertheless, Coi appears to be not fazed by the criticisms.
"God has been the best father to me. I can’t complain about anything," she tweeted last week. "My debut album is amazing and not one song can you say is bad. It been 5 days. I understand Coi Leray is so viral & works good on blogs headlines but trust me,it’s all part of the game just ride out andstayfocus"
Coi Leray then added: "One thing y’all should know about me, I don’t fold under pressure. This lil body got thick skin baby. Only me can stop me.#trendsetter ALBUM OUT NOW!!!!"
No matter how well all the albums do sales-wise, it was a good week for rap releases.
