This is a big change in hip hop buying trends that diggy flopped like this. Back in the early 2000's kid rappers like bow wow and romeo were selling allot better just because they were kids. Bow wow was even selling out arenas. But diggy who is a better MC than lil bow wow cant even push 50K in this current market.
Now i know many niggas not buying records nowadays but still kid rappers used to mean a parent was legally buying it or a kid had money from a parent to actually buy the album.
I also think tweens are looking more toward what they think as "mature" adults as opposed to a clean kid rapper. Back in my day at a middle school aged kid we had both you liked the lil bow wow shit but you also fucked with the parental advisory shit as well. But now i think kids are just looking for the explicit shit. This ins't a good look for rappers like lil twist trying to get at young market with future releases.
