Tyga recently released a new album, The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty, that sold a measly 2,200 or so copies its first week out. One person who actually cares is Birdman, who reportedly thinks the digital paper weight Tyga dropped was a ploy to get out of his record deal with Cash Money.
We’re told Birdman’s fuming because Tyga encouraged fans to listen to songs from “The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty” on free music streaming services, like Spotify — a move Birdman did NOT approve.
Our sources say the Cash Money honcho thinks Tyga sunk his album — which sold just 2,200 copies in its first week — because everyone could listen to the songs for free. By comparison, Tyga’s last record sold nearly half a million copies.
We’re told Birdman thinks Tyga purposely pulled the “childish” stunt … to get out of his deal, and go sign with Lil Wayne — but Birdman’s not counting this album. That means Tyga would still owe him another one.
Between dropping a dud and allegedly getting exposed by his transgender sidepiece, Tyga is getting all types of attention for the wrong reasons.
