Trippie Redd slams ‘C-List’ rappers for low album sales

Last week was a big release time for rap, with Fivio Foreign, Coi Leray, Vince Staples, Wiz Khalifa and EST Gee and 42 Dugg releasing projects.

Although the artists made sales, none of them garnered enough to reach No. 1 on the US charts. Trippie Redd recently took note of this, taking to his Instagram story to tease the sales of “C-list” rappers, calling them the “Avengers of trash.”

“I need all the C-list rappers – we’re about to make the Avengers of trash niggas,” he said. “N***a, what are we going to sell? If we get all our first 30,000 weeks together, we’ll get a thousand, nigga!

Although he didn’t seem to name any names, one rapper whose project got relatively low numbers is Coi, who is Trippie’s ex. His album, avant-garde is expected to move 11,000 people in its first week. “I can’t complain about anything. My debut album is amazing and you can’t say a single song is bad,” she wrote online in response. “It’s been 5 days. I get that Coi Leray is so viral and does well on blog headlines, but believe me, it’s all part of the game, get out there and stay focused.

Fivio’s first album BIBLE is expected to gross a respectable 29,000 units in its first week, which would put it in the top 10.

Trippie’s projects have proven themselves, with his recent album, 2021’s Journey to the Knightdebuting at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 with 81,000 album sales.
