2 Chainz Speaks On Gucci Mane's Twitter Rant, Album Sales Projections

2 Chainz says he "expect nothing less" from Gucci Mane in his latest outspoken Twitter rant.

2 Chainz is on the heels of the release of his second studio album, B.O.A.T.S. II and has been promoting it ever since.

Recently sitting down with The Breakfast Club, the Atlanta rapper talked about his latest project and the album sales that come with it.

“Of course I care. I’m still gon’ grind it out. If it does 50k, I’ll probably be mad as hell and do something like buy another car, make myself feel better," He said when asked about album sales. "But at the same time, I know it’s a race and if anybody know me, it’s hard to really get me down, get me discouraged. I’m very optimistic.”

2 Chainz was also asked about one of the hottest topics of the last week, Gucci Mane's Twitter rant and subsequent drop from Atlantic Records.

“I don’t expect nothing less from him," 2 Chainz replied with asked about his southern counterpart. "That’s my dawg. … This probably made him feel better, airing it out, embarrassing a few people. It didn’t bother me at all, straight up.”

    "they wouldnt make a typo twice. the first projections said 55-65k then they lowered it to 55-60k" I looked at hitsdailydouble and they did indeed say 255-260k opening week.

    "Why would he need a new job if his shows constantly get sold out?" The album is what drives people to the shows. If the album flops that means people are starting to get tired of 2 Chainz.

      "The album is what drives people to the shows. If the album flops that means people are starting to get tired of 2 Chainz." ^ nope -you can't prove people only go to a show to hear your latest music -you can't prove people are getting tired of the music just because of sales So when Ross didn't sell as much on DTR, it meant people were getting tired of him?

    If 3 chainz is more popular now than 2012, why is he doing poorly with his latest album?
    • Anonymous
      hes not more popular though why you think he is? he peaked when he had no lie out no one really checking for him he played himself out doing all them verses for people
    • 3 Chainz
      Like I said before, Im convinced theres a typo and that it will sell 250k opening week. Also, he had a huge hit with different, a solo. College kids bump to it everyday.

    • YOU NEED TO STOP
      HIS NAME IS NOT 3 CHAINZ
  • Boris Chestnut
    He might only sell 50k in the first week but he should finish at about 250k.

      which is less than half of what his last album did, not a good look
  • GOD loves real hiphop

      What about Pac and Eazy? You seem to love rappers with 'Big' in their names. You must love big dicks in you as well.

    I still don't believe BOATS 2 will sell only 50k copies. And he doesn't just have hits with drake. He had the wiz khalifa collaboration from fast and furious 6, and his classic, different. One thing I love about 2 chainz is that he reminds me of jay z before he fell off. im thinking there's a typo and that it actually sold 250k copies.

      Please tell me that's a joke.
  • dentaldamboy
    As a bitchass young money groupie with no accounting experience or recording experience, I can confirm that rich gang sold no album copies.
