Multiple sources told Page Six that the rapper/producer was HEATED after his newest album, “Father Of Asahd,” did not debut at No. 1.
According to the site, “He stormed into Epic with an entourage,” a source said. And when projections showed his new record looked likely to come in second, “he was angry and yelling. He threw a temper tantrum,” blaming the also-ran album placing on his label chiefs’ not understanding streaming services and bundle deals.
Another source even stated that the disappointed DJ is not having it AT ALL. “No. 2 won’t do for Khaled. He was not happy when the album didn’t debut at No. 1 . . . Not happy at all.”
Apparently, Khaled was upset with label reps who he feels did not fight for him to come first. Tyler the Creator actually came in first, beating out the Miami rapper and his Cardi B., Meek Mill and Sza features.
Meanwhile, Sony, which owns Epic and also reps Tyler, “is happy regardless. Their artists were No. 1 and No. 2.”
