Would you ever buy an album for $100? It’s a little expensive, huh? Well, just ask Jay-Z and he’ll give you a good reason on why you should buy one for that price!
Nipsey Hussle sure made a fortune this past week!
The 28-year-old rapper came out with 1000 physical copies of his new mix tape, “Crenshaw,” and he decided to sell them for $100 each.
Sure, the album includes his autograph and concert tickets, but we were all wondering who in their right mind would purchase it for that amount?
Well, Jay-Z will tell you that he purchased 100 of Nipsey’s CDs for $10,000! Jay-Z posted a pic of the 100 CDs he bought onto his website, Life and Times, while Nipsey tweeted, “Shout to Jay Z for buying 100 copies of #Crenshaw!”
Yes, we’re all wondering the same thing! Why would Jay-Z to do such a crazy thing? Does he not realize that Nipsey also released a free digital version online?
Well, Nipsey is ready to explain and alleviate our confusion! He says, “It isn’t the price of the plastic case and polyurethane disc – it’s the price of revolution! The price of rebellion against an industry that has tricked us all into making products that have no soul for fear of not being heard if we don’t!”
Nipsey is coming out with his new album, “Victory Lap” very soon! Do you think he’s going to charge $100 for each of those CDs as well? What do you guys think about his whole movement? Hit the comments below and tweet us @PopStopTV.
