Fivio Foreign and 6ix9ine are waging a verbal battle. As with most feuds involving the “TROLLZ” rapper, things are just getting hotter. Fivio’s debut album B.I.B.L.E., which was released last week, is expected to sell 29,000 album-equivalent units in its first week.
While that amount is expected to land 6ix9ine in the top 10 on the Billboard 200 for the first time, he is less than happy with the results. Fivio’s sales forecasts were discovered on DJ Akademiks’ Instagram page. The controversial rap figure who has sold 55K, 66K, and 53K first-week copies across his first three releases, went into the comments section to mock his fellow New Yorker.
This y’all king? Not blackballed, all those features, the whole industry promoted that [crying face emojis] and now you Kanye and nicki sidekick even they even tried to help you promote [crying face emojis].
The feud between Fivio Foreign and 6ix9ine began last week, and it sprang from a battle for the title of “King of New York.” Fivio, who named himself the heir to the late Pop Smoke’s throne on “City of Gods”, questioned 6ix9ine’s claim via a cryptic tweet after he declared “the King of New York is coming back” while announcing his return to music.
In response to Fivio Foreign’s post, 6ix9ine used DJ Akademiks’ Instagram comments area as a battleground, bringing up the recent death of his close buddy and affiliate Tdott Woo, who was fatally shot in Canarsie, Brooklyn in February.
Fivio Foreign and 6ix9ine aren’t the first rappers to vie for the title of “King of New York.” JAY-Z and Nas famously battled it out for the title belt after The Notorious B.I.G.’s sad death in 1997, while 50 Cent’s unstoppable rise in the early 2000s prompted competition with Ja Rule, Fat Joe, and Cam’ron.
