(AllHipHop News) Dave East needed to get some things off his chest. There were rumors circulating that his Survival album sold less than 3000 units in its first week of release.
When the official numbers came back, East saw his debut studio album pull in around 22,000 units to open at #11 on the Billboard 200 chart. The Harlem-bred emcee took to Instagram to call out media outlets that pushed the "poor sales" narrative.
