Meek Gets Candid About His Album Sales

Aside from revealing that he’s currently single, the 35-year-old rapper also shared that the payouts from his Expensive Pain album sales haven’t been quite what he’s expected.

I let those albums go once I seen I was get 13. Cents to every dollar, once I really figured that out I ain’t promoting no label shit I don’t eat off …. My money come from my name and brand

The “Dreams and Nightmares” rapper added that he’s only “made 11 million dollars in 10 years from music.” This realization caused him to become “shocked mad,” turning his interest away from being apart of any major music label.

The rapper revealed that many trusted sources let him down when he “got educated” about his business, adding that “they mentally keep you faded from knowing.” So much so, that he recalled learning about the sales from his Drake-assisted single, “Going Bad,” and “losing all trust” for the streaming industry.

Meek shared that although the song brought in $24 million dollars in sales, he was left unclear on how much money he received from the total revenue. Meek also added that he asked Drake to hop on the song three days before his Championships album was released, thinking the rapper did the feature for free. However, he never inquired to learn more about “how much [he] made off a song that made that much” because he was given a plaque.

Big mental trickery!
