While the likely preference is to make news for a Best Buy selling out of your album, 50 Cent went for the next best thing: he made Best Buy sell out of someone else’s album.
The release, Trey Songz‘s day-old Trigga, doesn’t even feature the NYC rapper on it, but the two recently collaborated on 50’s song “Smoke” earlier this year, solidifying a friendship that has now resulted in very public gestures of musical adoration.
The meaning of the gesture? Attention, humor and supporting the arts, it seems. XXL points to Instagram evidence of the lavish spending spree.
But what is 50 Cent going to do with his new purchases? And what about all the regular Pittsburgh shoppers that actually did want to buy the Trey Songz album and now will be forced to wait until the inevitable restocking?
