The label heads over at Top Dawg Entertainment have been big proponents of ScHoolboy Q’s new album, even going as far as procuring rap megastar Kanye West for the latest single “THat Part.” But the lack of single sales has CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith feeling some type of way about the support from fans.
He recently took to Twitter to jokingly wrangle with fans, asking, “Who bought Q single?… we have over 11m followers and his single sold 26k the 1st week. y’all beg 4 it..explain that support 2 me…lmao.”
After his mentions lit up with responses, Top countered, “I’m 😂😂😂😂😂😂 at y’all excuses…. Now stop cursing me out about releasing music lol.”
One Twitter user tried to argue that people no longer buy music because of streaming. Top replied, “Go look at the charts.. a lot of ppl buy music.”
Finally he added, “Y’all have 2 really support these records y’all keep asking for.”
Maybe things will change for the better when Q drops the video for the single. He and West shot the visual for the song earlier this month in Los Angeles. It should be coming out soon.
ScHoolboy wrapped up the recording of his album a month ago. The project is still without a title or an official release date. This will be the follow up to his critically acclaimed 2014 album Oxymoron.
