Troy Ave isn't the type to let disappointing album sales get him down. Despite all of the jokes about his debut album Major Without A Deal going "wood" or "plastic" or "garbage", Troy got on the radio Monday and inexplicably declared himself the biggest independent artist in Hip Hop.
Joey Bada$$ must have heard Troy's latest bluster. Because he got on Twitter and pointed out that his debut album B4.DA.$$ did more than ten times what Troy's did for opening weeks .
Reminder: Joey Bada$$ sold 57,000+ albums in his first week, INDEPENDENTLY... At 20 years old... $10/album... 85% of shares, do the math....— B4.DA.$$ OUT NOW!!! (@joeyBADASS) June 22, 2015
That makes me the #1 Independent Hip Hop artist/brand in the world.... — B4.DA.$$ OUT NOW!!! (@joeyBADASS) June 22, 2015
Since numbers were not on his side, Troy responded by questioning Joey's indie status:
NO single, NO party hosting's NO real endorsements Reminder: NObody cares + u WORK for Sony Red / Cinematic Records #FakeIndependent— TROY AVE (@TroyAve) June 22, 2015
We can only imagine how much Troy would be yapping if he actually moved some units.
