2 Chainz Talks Low Album Sales Projections

2 Chainz just released his sophomore solo album, B.O.A.T.S II: #METime. Chainz sat down with The Breakfast Club on Power 105.1, and discussed the promotion of the album and the low first week sale prejections.

The low sales projections might be due to the lack of albums Def Jam shipped out. 2 Chainz has indicated his disappointment in the amount of albums that were sent out, but during the interview he was’nt trying to point fingers at anyone.

“I’m doing my job…as far as me being on the footwork, doing the groundwork, doing the tours, as far as the radio and the media I feel good about my project and I know what kinda work I put into it,” Tity Boi said of his album’s promotion. “As far as Def Jam, you don’t wanna get into the angry rapper mode and point fingers at different people. I’m still confident in the process of word of mouth as far as marketing and advertising and if anybody even tried to listen to the album they know that it’s a problem.” “I’m kinda on some laid-back humble stuff right now, ’cause I think I outdid myself on this album, I think I definitely made a better album than my last album and that one definitely exceeded expectations.””I’m doing my job…as far as me being on the footwork, doing the groundwork, doing the tours, as far as the radio and the media I feel good about my project and I know what kinda work I put into it,” Tity Boi said of his album’s promotion. “As far as Def Jam, you don’t wanna get into the angry rapper mode and point fingers at different people.

If the album does what it is expected to do, which is 55-60k its opening week, 2 Chainz said, “I care.” He went on to say, “I’m still gunna grind it out. If it does 50,000 I’ll probably be mad as hell and do something like buy a car, make myself feel better. But at the same time, I know it’s a grind, it’s a race, and anybody that knows me knows it’s hard to get me down, I’m very optimistic.”
