Meek Mill & Drake Beef Affected Pinkprint Tour Ticket Sales

After being deemed the loser in a war he started, it appears that now the “6 god” is having the last laugh as his “Back to Back” is now ranked #21 on the charts of the Billboard Hot 100.

The closest Mill has gotten is his newly released track “All Eyes on You” which features his lady love Nicki Minaj.

This comes on the heels of Drake’s If You’re Reading This Its Too Late project going certified platinum amid he and Mill’s beef.

Mill’s project Dreams Worth More Than Money fell short of the Billboard Top 10 after being beat out by the “Charged Up” rapper’s project, which was released back in February but crept back into the Top 10 ranking after all the controversy stirred up.

Jackson Riso, a data analyst and representative from TickPick, a marketplace site similar to Stubhub minus added fees, the site noticed an exaggerated, downward trend in ticket sale prices for the couple’s tour.

“The average ticket price for a Meek Mill [and] Nicki Minaj concert on July 20th was $179,” Riso said in an email.

“By the time OVO Fest came around, that had fallen nearly 20 percent to $148.”

OVO Fest is Drake’s annual music festival that takes place in his hometown of Toronto, Canada.

This year, the festival spanned two days from August 2nd until the 3rd.

Comparably, ticket prices for the Sam Smith tour, which has dates that coincide with the Pinkprint Tour, only fell about $10 during the same time period.

On ticket marketplace websitres, there’s usually a slight decline in prices as tour dates begin to dwindle.

However, the sharp drop that appears around the time Drake released “Charged Up,” and  “Back to Back,” two diss tracks aimed at Meek, isn’t normal.

Before the rapper and his more famous girlfriend rocked Camden’s Susquehanna Bank Center on Thursday, August 6th (read our review here), ticket prices leapt sharply as fans scrambled to secure a spot.

But following that performance prices returned to lower numbers

Even more remarkable, the sharp drop appears to have coincided with Meek’s Twitter rant against the Canadian rapper and Drake’s subsequent diss tracks against the North Philly rapper.

If Mill’s social media is an indicator of things to come, it doesn’t look like the rapper is planning to go quietly into the night like we had all assumed.

It looks as though Mill is still searching for a way to bounce back after suffering a massive defeat.
