It’s amazing the damage one ill-advised White woman can do. Not only did YesJulz disrespect Black women, call into question the reputation of battle rapper Murda Mook. Now, there are reports that she’s also the reason why Daniel Caesar’s latest album Case Study 101 didn’t sell well.
According to That Grape Juice Caesar’s latest album is only projected to sell under 3,000 copies.
That Grape Juice reports that Case Study is expected to sell between 1-2000 pure copies and between 24-27,000 units with streams. In its opening week, Case Study debuted at number 11.
While it’s hard to say why people don’t buy albums, many are convinced that it was Caesar’s decision to defend a White woman wearing a “N*ggas Lie A Lot” shirt that caused many of Caesar’s fans to check out.
In an Instagram rant, Caesar said that Black people are too hard on White people. He told fans that he didn’t care of his comments caused people to stop buying his music. If these numbers are accurate, that’s exactly what happened.
In his defense, Caesar later apologized for his comments. He said he realized he was talking down to his fans, that he sounded pretentious. And in looking at the video later, he recognized how harsh it sounded.
But perhaps it wasn’t enough.
