Tekashi 6ix9ine is beefing with more rappers once again. The rainbow-haired rapper, who was released from jail earlier this year, got trolled by Blueface and Lil Durk soon after he dropped his sophomore studio album 'TattleTales'.

The trolling of 6ix9ine by fellow rappers started once the projections of next week's album sales were out. 6ix9ine, who had earlier claimed to be topping the Billboard 200 chart the upcoming week with sales in excess of 150,000, was trolled by rappers Blueface and Lil Durk after it was revealed that 'TattleTales' is forecast to sell as low at 50,000 copies in its debut week.

According to a tweet by Chart Data, "@6ix9ine's 'TattleTales' aiming for 40-50K first week in the US based on updated reports."



 

 

First, when 6ix9ine dropped the music video for his track 'TUTU', Blueface commented on Instagram, "This is terrible. Put Lil Durk on." 6ix9ine then replied to the comment saying, "Blueface 12k. Lil Tjay 17k. Smokepurp 5k. Quandorondo 3k. Can’t be me."

6ix9ine has always boasted about his high sale numbers but now, after the latest sales forecast, Lil Durk and Blueface have hit back. As DJ Akademiks pointed out in his tweet, "Lil Durk, BlueFACE and Lil Tjay clown 6ix9ine about his first week sales projections." Akademiks then posted screenshots of the comments made by Lil Durk and Blueface about 6ix9ine which read, "This what happens when you go against the voice lol ima our sell him with my eyes closed," and "Dam he would still be alive rn if n----s ain’t gas him up."



 

According to another tweet by DJ Akademiks, the massive fall in 6ix9ine's sales numbers is because of, "bundles being ineligible." Explaining the situation, he tweeted, "6ix9ine 'TattleTales' sales projections have been decreased. It’s now expected to sell 50K first week. Why the 100k decrease? Possibly because of bundles being ineligible ... more info to come."



 

To put it simply, any music sold in connection to merchandise will not be counted as an album sale. This issue had earlier gained attention when DJ Khaled's 'Father of Asahd' lost the Billboard 200 top-spot to Tyler, the Creator's IGOR after a majority of Khaled's sales came bundled with other merchandise, including energy drinks. Billboard deems albums sold with merch bundles as invalid.

Fans also had a lot to say about these final predictions, as one vented their frustration with the rapper writing, "6ix9ine fans are the biggest hypocrites and crybabies just like him. He’s been bashing the dead, making fun of every rapper’s album sales, but the moment people laugh at the self proclaimed “hottest rapper” flopping.. we are the bad guys? We smoking that rainbow pack tomorrow."



 

A 6ix9ine fan, weighing in on the situation, said, "How you go from 150k to 50K? The way they don’t want to see him win is crazy! What happened to the 100K? Are they not counting them bc they don’t want him to have that #1 Album. They can’t stand that 6ix9ine can get a #1 album without their help."



 

Many people had something to say about the latest development. Criticizing 6ix9ine, one user tweeted, "I’m not sure why 6ix9ine has fans. He’s just a nuisance to hip hop. He drops terrible music and causes beef with people for attention and views. There’s really no upside to him."



 

6ix9ine's debut album, 'Dummy Boy', had debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 with 66,000 copies sold in the first week of its release. This year, 6ix9ine cracked the Billboard Hot 100 twice, with 'Gooba' and then with 'Trollz' featuring Nicki Minaj.
