6ix9ine Mocks Fivio Foreign’s First Week Album Sales.
6ix9ine and Fivio Foreign are in a verbal spat, and as with most feuds featuring the “TROLLZ” rapper, it’s just going to get worse.
Fivio’s debut album B.I.B.L.E., which was released on Friday (April 8), is expected to sell 29,000 album-equivalent units in its first week, according to reports earlier this week. While that amount is expected to land 6ix9ine in the top 10 on the Billboard 200 for the first time, he is less than happy with the results.
6ix9ine On Fivio’s Sales Forecasts
On Wednesday (April 13), after seeing Fivio’s sales forecasts on DJ Akademiks’ Instagram page, the controversial rap figure — who has sold 55K, 66K, and 53K first-week copies across his first three releases — rushed into the comments area to mock his fellow New Yorker.
“This y’all king?” he wrote. “Not blackballed, all those features, the whole industry promoted that [crying face emojis] and now you Kanye and Nicki sidekick even they even tried to help you promote.”
The spat between Fivio Foreign and 6ix9ine began last week, sparked by rivalry for the title of “King of New York.”
Fivio, who claimed to be the successor to the late Pop Smoke’s throne on “City of Gods,” questioned 6ix9ine’s claim with a cryptic tweet after he said “the King of New York is coming back” while announcing his return to music.
“5 Billboards in Times Square, Top 5 songs in NY on Apple at once, & articles in both Daily News & NY Times,” he tweeted. “Don’t ever let that n*gga say he the King Of this city.”
Fivio Foreign and 6ix9ine aren’t the first rappers to fight for the title of “King of New York.” Following the tragic murder of The Notorious B.I.G. in 1997, JAY-Z and Nas famously fought for the title belt, while 50 Cent’s meteoric rise in the early 2000s generated competition with Ja Rule, Fat Joe, and Cam’ron.
