Tekashi 6ix9ine was probably hoping to top the Billboard charts with his debut album, but AstroWorld has claimed the throne again. The former leader of the Billboard 200, Travis Scott, has returned at the top of the charts for the third non-consecutive week. Billboard reports that Astroworld, which was released in August, earned 71,000 equivalent album units in the week ending November 29. Tekashi 6ix9ine debuted at No. 2 on the chart this week from three days of activity in the tracking week, according to Billboard. Congratulations to both artist on their projects being on the charts. But that’s not all on the Brooklyn rapper. Tekashi’s team was issued legal papers by DMV Events claiming that he owes $500,000 for canceling his performance at Howard University’s Homecoming 35 minutes before doors opened. And to add insult to injury, the DUMMY BOY appeared at Powerhouse in New Jersey that same night.
Over the weekend the industry’s finest flew out to Johannesburg, South Africa, where The Global Citizens Festival was held. The theme of this year’s festival was to honor the life, work and legacy of freedom fighter, Nelson Mandela on his 100th birthday. Beyonce, Jay-Z, Ed Shereen, Usher, Pharrell, Tiwa Savage, Wiz Kid and many more graced the stage. Other guest supporting to name a few were Oprah, Gayle King, Dave Chapelle
