Smokepurpp Defends Travis Scott After Nicki Minaj Album Sales Rant

posted by Monica Sett; IG - @momosett - 

Nicki Minaj was going off on social media yesterday when the first week album sales for 'Queen' dropped. 'Queen' was neck-in-neck in competition for the highest album sales versus Travis Scott's 'Astroworld' earlier in the week, and when DJ Akademiks posted projected sales showing Travis was on track to have higher sales than Nicki, Nicki clapped back in the comments section saying it was "FAKE NEWS." 

Yikes. Nicki's clearly having trouble accepting that her album wasn't number one. Soon after her rant, Smokepurpp hit social media to defend Travis Scott. He says Nicki Minaj is "buggin" and "doing the most" for hating on the next man. Although he means no disrespect, Purpp insists that numbers don't lie. 

#travisscott artist #smokepurpp (who is signed to Cactus jack records) addresses Travis Scott Beating Nicki in sales this week. Is Nicki salty or na??

Peep what started all of Nicki's posts.

#nickiminaj says her total for “QUEEN” which right now says 190K first week isn’t accurate. She says wait till Sunday!!

Welp, turns out that Travis Scott's 'Astroworld' DID end up being the #1 album for the second week in a row. Nicki seemed to have a hard time accepting that, though. She started her rant by pointing out that she believes Travis only had the top album because he used Kylie Jenner and Stormi for marketing...peep her tweets below.
