New York rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine is really selling albums. The hip-hop newcomer’s Day69 is en route to easily secure a Top 5 debut on the music charts.
Based on early estimates, Tek’s new studio release is set to sell up to 60,000 copies.
ScumGang/TenThousand’s 6ix9ine will be the week’s top debut and should be a lock for a spot in the Top 5 with a first week total of 50-60k, 20-25k for the album. The Black Panther soundtrack (TDE/Aftermath/Interscope) gets the nod for a third week on top. (HITS Daily Double)
A few days ago, Tek went to social media to get fans geeked out about his new LP.
The same week, hip-hop artist Acie High came forward to address his publicized attack on Tek at LAX.
Acie — who’s in a rap group out of Texas called Aqualeo — says he and his partner, Priceless, were dropping some girls off at LAX when Tekashi’s crew started hitting on the chicks. Acie says he and Priceless told the guys to stop, they wouldn’t, so things exploded. Acie says he always thought there would be a time when he would do a little street justice, and seems more than happy 6ix9ine and his crew pushed his buttons at the airport. (TMZ)
Acie also went to his Instagram page to address the attack and ripped Tek for running away.
