Meek Mill & Boosie Badazz Believe DaBaby Is Being Blackballed Following Low Album Sales

'Baby On Baby 2' is expected to sell 100,000 fewer copies than the rapper's previous album.

Meek Mill and Boosie Badazz have both spoken out in defense of DaBaby amid claims he’s being blackballed by the music industry.

Earlier this week, Akademiks reported the North Carolina rapper’s latest album Baby On Baby 2 is projected to earn 16,000 album-equivalent units in its first week, placing it outside of the top 20 on the Billboard 200.

Comparatively, his last studio album, 2020’s Blame It On Baby, debuted at No. 1 on the chart after opening with a significantly higher 124,000 album-equivalent units.

The media personality subsequently suggested DaBaby is being ostracized by the powers that be in the rap industry, pointing the finger at Apple Music and Hot 97’s Ebro Darden in particular.

“His new project after being blackballed by Ebro, Apple Music is scheduled to do less than 20K,” he tweeted on Wednesday (September 28). “Now yall understand my Ebro convo…. DSPs control who is hot and who is not. Fall out of favor with them.. UR DONE.”

Meek and Boosie both took to Twitter on Thursday (September 29) to echo Akademiks’ sentiments after learning about DaBaby’s sales slump.
