DJ Khaled Plans Lawsuit Against Billboard Over Losing #1 Slot

A source claims there were "strange anomalies" with DJ Khaled's data.

(AllHipHop News) DJ Khaled is just getting started in his war with Billboard over the chart placement of his new album Father of Asahd.

DJ Khaled allegedly had a fit at Epic Records afterFather of Asahd failed to debut at #1, and instead came in second to Tyler the Creator's album IGOR.

The hit producer was seriously pissed off, because Tyler sold 165,000 units of IGOR, when counting copies that were included with bundled purchases of merchandise, stickers and more.

DJ Khaled did the same thing with Father of Asahd, which was also sold as a bundle with energy drinks he hawks and moved 137,000 copies according to Billboard.

But DJ Khaled maintains Billboard refused to count another 100,000 of his bundled units without any logical explanation.

Now, reports are suggesting Khaled is going to let the courts sort out the dispute, with a lawsuit against Billboard.

The rapper's legal team is planning to tell the court he was "unfairly disqualified" from taking the #1 slot due to an arbitrary decision by Billboard to not include his sales.

It appears Khaled better be braced for a nasty court fight. A source told PageSix that Billboard disqualified some of Khaled's sales because “there were strange anomalies in the data."

Billboard is planning to launch a new methodology for including bundled sales in 2020.

You know I came in already to crucify Khaled for this until I read that they're not counting a 100,000 units for some reason. That is strange. He has a point.

Thanks Khaled. Been looking for a reason to cancel you. You had every hot artist on the planet and still couldn't go #1.

Okay I’m f’in done with this dude! Are you serious? Is this real? Dude is on his privilege white female ish for real for real. Says a lot about the industry and the inside advantage they have over real hard working artist. This manufactured muck is packaged to sell units before an expiration date. Artificial music, artificial numbers from an artificial dude.
