Meek Mill has recently responded to the underwhelming sales projections for his joint project with Rick Ross, titled “Too Good To Be True.” The album is anticipated to move between 30,000 and 35,000 first-week units, as reported by HITS Daily Double.
Taking to Twitter on Sunday (November 12), Meek shared his thoughts on the projections, hinting that the challenge lies in the music industry’s business model rather than the quality of the music itself.
Expressing his discontent, Meek Mill stated, “It’s says me and Ross on pace to sell 35k first week I would post if it said 350k… I’m too nice and rich to be rapping in a control music environment that’s why we dropping music on Fridays it’s doesn’t make sense …. Now we all own our music we getting the tech built to put people on our own musical subscriptions and we gone let direct to consumer see if rap if doing well.”
This move by Meek Mill highlights his commitment to reshaping the traditional music distribution model, aiming for greater control and ownership for artists. By venturing into direct-to-consumer subscriptions, he seeks to empower both artists and fans while challenging the current industry norms. The shift not only reflects Meek’s entrepreneurial spirit but also signifies a potential evolution in how the music business operates.
