They aren’t pretty

Last week, Tyga surprisingly released his new, oft-delayed album, Gold Album: 18th Dynasty, for stream on Spotify, and the album would eventually be available on iTunes on Friday.

The album, executive produced by Kanye West, made headlines long before its release, thanks to Tyga’s battles with Cash Money. Long before Lil Wayne and   expressed their discontent with Birdman’s behind-the-scenes actions, Tyga made his feelings known on Twitter in late 2014, and 9 months later, finally got the opportunity to get his album heard. Unfortunately, his sales numbers aren’t very attractive.


A couple weeks ago, Troy Ave was dragged all over social media for his low sales mark, which included an awkward physical copy tally of 30, and Tyga has somehow hit a mark even lower than that. According to a Soundscan report, the “Make It Work” rapper mustered up 2,200. To be fair, his week was drastically shortened by the late release, most albums are released on either Monday or Tuesday, but it’s still atrocious, all things considered.

To help put things in perspective, Tyga responded to Complex’s tweet of the news with a brief explanation of his goal with the release, which was not to hit a particular sales mark.
