50 Cent Buys A Best Buy's Supply Of Trey Songz's "Trigga"

50 Cent purchases every copy of Trey Songz at a Best Buy in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

50 Cent says he's purchased every copy of Trey Songz's Trigga from a Best Buy in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. 

The rapper recorded himself buying the copies on Instagram. 50 Cent later took a photograph of the Best Buy employee who helped him purchase the albums and posted the image on Instagram, also. 

"@treysongz I BROUGHT THE STORE. NO CD's left in best buy,in Pittsburgh tell the label i said reship LMAO," 50 Cent says in his caption for the Instagram video. 

In the other caption, 50 Cent asks fans to "support real artists." 

"Take a picture of your self buying music you enjoy. SPR support real artist. #smsaudio #animalambition," he says.

50 Cent and Trey Songz have collaborated. The two worked together on "Smoke."

    $16.99? No sale since it is a new album?

  • Marc

    I understand supporting the homies but buying out a whole store is not saying much for the fan base of Trey Songz. Most of Trey music noone can hate on. But when it comes to album sales just like with what Samsung did for Jay, Jay did the same thing for Nipsey, and now 50 doing the same thing for Trey, its really cheating your sales. But hey, when its money to be made what it matter to them though right???

      Like dude said down there, rich people cant be music fans? How they show support is buying the latest project. 50 purchased the trey songz supply of cds in one single pittsburg, pa best buy store, one can't be that misinformed to even think they stocked more than 100 trey songz cds in that one single pittsburg store

    Forgive for not understanding the point in this. Similar to the Jay-Z situation with Samsung. The idea is for the fans to spend their hard earned money to buy your album. Since when was it cool to have wealthy individuals or companies to buy up all of your copies to make it appear to be a platinum artist in the eyes of the consumers/fans? I'd rather have a 500k fans buy my album then Jay-Z buying up a million.

      So wealthy people can't be fans?

      Samsung bought the 1m digital versions from jayz as a promotional bundle for their product. There were still over 1m physical copies still sold. 50 bought what, 50-100 copies of hia album, not cleaned out best buy's national inventory of trey songz albums.

    Damn shout to 50 for doing that. Drake & J.Cole did the same thing last year when born sinner came out. The way I see it is that As an artist it's good to support each other. I don't see this as dick riding or anything like that. I just see him trying to support.

    HUSTLER ALWAYS 50 doesn't do anything for no reason at all, and in a way where it can't benefit him financially, MONEY ALWAYS!!!!!!!

      cus Trey let 50 fuck him in the ass in the studio while singing Alicia Keys biggest hits

      hes likely going to give them all out for free to fans who want it

    • 50 is gay for trey

      They're not even friends. They worked together on a few songs years ago and they did summer jam, that's their only interaction. Thats what trey said in the breakfast club interview.

      Okay. To support his friend, I hear that. But realistically speaking, what the hell is he going to do with all those copies? Fans making it to Best Buy to find out the CD sold out. There are PLENTY of other ways to support his friend. I just think this is a bit over the top.

    This dude Curtis is always having these weird man crushes. I know he worked with him on a song but god damn, do they even speak on a regular basis? lol This reminds me of when he gave that washed up actor val kilmer a car when they worked on that low budget film together. I doubt they even talk now. Smh Dude is so sad and lonely and he thinks he can buy celebrities friendship, cause he has none.

  • Papi

    fif you got a crush?

    I don't think trey songz mind if you have to wait as long as his albums were bought period.

    That's cool he supported but im thinking since 50 is independent and he making all this money for every album sold, plus he owns his masters, publishing, etc 50 can put out an album and wait to to 3 weeks. Then start buying his own albums lets say he spends $10,000 a week which is nothing to 50. That 10,000 and he does it for 10 weeks that's $100,000 he spent which still is nothing for 50. That $ 100,000 he spent might profit that dude 1 million. Labels do it a lot he can buy his albums, and his artist albums its gonna profit him like crazy, Its just a flip just like when he was selling drugs.

    Sucks for the fans who went to that Best Buy to get Trey's album only to find out they have to wait for more.
