Troy Ave Doesn’t Care About Album Sales

Rapper responds to Major Without a Deal moving less than 4,400 copies.

Published June 11, 2015

Troy Aves new LP failed to make a major impact on the charts.

According to Complex, Major Without a Deal moved roughly 4,373 copies so far, the majority of which were digital sales. The Brooklyn rapper only sold 30 physical copies, but as Billboard notes, the indie album was released digitally first. Physical copies weren't available until Tuesday.

Tepid sales don’t seem to be bothering Troy, who hopped on Twitter today to remind everybody that the final numbers aren’t out yet, and he’s already made six figures off the release. “Official #'s in Fri or Mon. since album dropped last Fri but at 95% +30k singles sold & hosting's [sic] I Prob made 120 THOUSAND in 1week #RTthat.”

In an April interview, Troy boasted about Major Without a Deal being a classic, despite the naysayers. “People don’t believe me, I told them before I dropped New York City: The Album it was a classic,” he said.

The album is chocked with features including 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, Cam’Ron, Ty Dolla $ign, Jadakiss and A$AP Ferg, but it looks like the guest list wasn't enough to get the numbers up.
