We The Best CEO DJ Khaled is celebrating life and success. The hip-hop hitmaker went to social media this week to show off his gold certified Father of Asahd album plaque.
On Wednesday, Khaled lit up his Instagram feed with a sneak peek at his plaque.
On Monday, Khaled went to Instagram to geek out over his accomplishment and promised a big surprise once he hits platinum.
According to recent reports, Khaled’s record sales issues were directly connected to Billboard for excluding some of his LP’s numbers.
DJ Khaled‘s reported anger about the sales of his album have nothing to do with the success of Tyler, the Creator, and it turns out his frustrations are actually with Billboard for allegedly choosing not to use a huge chunk of his sales and smashing his chances at a #1 album over a petty disagreement. Multiple sources familiar with the situation tell The Blast, Khaled’s “Father of Asahd” missed becoming the #1 album because over 100,000 album downloads for the hip-hop producer were “disqualified” over the running of a promotion that Billboard said “was not approved.” (The Blast)
According to initial reports, Khaled low-key had a major blow-up at Epic Records when his newest compilation album didn’t debut at No. 1.
Multiple music sources told Page Six that the rapper and producer is fuming at his label after his ballyhooed new album, “Father of Asahd,” failed to debut at the top of the charts. “He stormed into Epic with an entourage,” a source said. And when projections showed his new record looked likely to come in second, “he was angry and yelling. He threw a temper tantrum,” blaming the also-ran album placing on his label chiefs’ not understanding streaming services and bundle deals. (Page Six)
