The rumor mill swirled no shortage of reports that ‘Jealous’ star DJ Khaled was incensed at news his latest album, ‘Father of Asahd,’ failed to nab the top spot of the Billboard 200 (unlike its predecessors – 2016’s ‘Major Key’ and 2017’s ‘Grateful’ respectively).
Like we reported here, ‘Asahd’ – despite its guest list of heavy hitters and padding its first week sales with a merchandise bundle – still came in second place to Tyler, the Creator‘s critically acclaimed album, ‘IGOR.’ The upset was all the more shocking as the latter set had no Billboard Hot 100 top 40 singles to precede its arrival, unlike that of Khaled’s.
Our friends at Page Six first broke the story that Khaled was “fuming” at his label, Epic Records, after losing out to Tyler and reportedly was “yelling” and throwing a “temper tantrum.” Later, the 43-year-old uploaded a video (that’s now deleted) that may not confirm his tantrum at Epic, but at least suggests he felt some kinda way about Tyler’s triumph.
Watch it inside:
