All He Does Is Whine: DJ Khaled Plans To Sue Over His Chart Loss To Tyler, The Creator

DJ Khaled is taking his loss to Tyler, The Creator really hard.

Tyler's IGOR beat Khaled Father of Asahd in their first-week showdown last week, causing Khaled to storm into their shared record label Epic and start yelling at people.

Now Khaled is planning to sue Billboard for shorting him and his bundles. Page Six reports:

DJ Khaled is poised to hit the Billboard Chart with a monster lawsuit alleging the organization unfairly disqualified more than 100,000 sales of “Father of Asahd,” robbing him of the No. 1 spot.

Khaled was furious when his album came in at No.  2 to Tyler, the Creator’s “IGOR,” after Billboard allegedly discounted downloads sold by the DJ and producer as part of a “bundle deal” with an energy drink. Bundle deals, which offer album downloads alongside merchandise, are a standard but controversial industry practice to boost sales.

We’re told Billboard had agreed it would count downloads from Khaled’s energy drink package, which sources in the artist’s camp say amounted to more than 100,000. Billboard later backtracked, disqualifying Khaled’s entire sales from the promotion, arguing there were “anomalies” in his figures. Page Six has exclusively learned that lawyers for Khaled have fired off a letter to Silvio Pietroluongo, SVP of charts and data development at Billboard.

All of Khaled's whining hasn't helped him on the chart. IGOR beat Father of Asahd again in their second weeks.

As for Tyler, he keeps liking posts that shade Khaled and his "talent."
