Even Late Rap Stars Pop Smoke & Juice Wrld Outsold Tekashi 6ix9ine's 'TattleTales' Album This Week

The controversial rapper got a rude awakening when the LP didn't hit No. 1 as originally predicted.

Tekashi 6ix9ine spent weeks bagging on other artists for their low album sales but got a rude awakening when his TattleTales album’s first-week sales projections dropped from roughly 150,000 to 45,000. Subsequently, the project debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart this week as Big Sean’s Detroit 2 album soared to the No. 1 spot.

Interestingly enough, even older albums from two late rappers — Pop Smoke and Juice Wrld — outsold the brash Brooklyn rapper. According to Billboard, Pop’s posthumous release Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon landed at No. 2 while Juice Wrld’s Legends Never Die settled in at No. 3..centered-ad {

Pop’s Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon was initially released on July 3, five months after he was murdered at a Hollywood Hills home. With the help of 50 Cent, his debut effort was able to come to fruition and made its grand entrance at No. 1 with approximately 251,000 total album equivalent units sold in its first week.

Meanwhile, Juice Wrld’s third studio album dropped on July 10, seven months after he suffered a fatal seizure
