The Queens rapper looked up the first-week numbers on his phone, revealing that Ross sold 34,388 units. “Is that a rock or a brick?” he asked laughing.
“You know he had to buy some,” added the G-Unit boss. “Anybody would’ve panicked when you saw that number trending.”
He estimates that of Ross purchased around 15,000 copies of his own album.
Last year’s Animal Ambition, sold around 10,000 more copies than Ross’s debut numbers, and less than 130,000 copies as of December 2014. Even with millions of records sold over his career, Fif is still very much on the grind musically, having just dropped The Kanaan Tape yesterday.
“I’m heating up baby, watch me,” he told the G-Unit Radio. “I’m just gon’ act like we starting over. Ain’t nothin' too big, ain’t nothin' too small. That’s why I’m in here with ya’ll.”
