“I’d Rather Take Me Off Billboard” – Meek Mill

Meek Mill recently dropped ‘Expensive Pain’ album which went on to debut at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album is said to have moved 95,000 equivalent album units, a drastic contrast to Championships’ 229,000 units.

In a new interview with Complex, the Philadelphia rapper addressed the numbers and Billboard chart.

“Even before my album just came out. They say it sold 90,000, I don’t know if they said that’s good or bad, but if we walk outside right now, you gon’ hear that sh*t booming from Maine to Spain,” he told Complex.

When he was asked if he cares about where he debuts on the Billboard charts, he made it clear that securing top spots are the least of his worries.

“Me, I’d rather take me off Billboard,” said Meek. “You gotta think about, what is the purpose of me being on Billboard. If Jay-Z talkin’ ’bout he don’t believe Billboard…he been in the game for 30 years. Why should I put myself in a position to be where they say, allegedly, something is being manipulated, and then I’m putting my brand on a list that’s being manipulated.”

He clarified that he isn’t specifically stating that Billboard charts are skewed, but he added, “Billboard is not a part of my marketing scheme.”
