Korean rapper and songwriter BIG Naughty doesn’t worry about not selling enough albums. In fact, he is more concerned about selling too many albums.
Videos from previous live broadcasts of BIG Naughty begging fans not to buy his albums have resurfaced on social media. One video compilation has gone viral on TikTok with 319.7K views at the time of writing.
Netizens are saying that it only encourages them to want to buy more, citing reverse psychology.
Yet, BIG Naughty has a long history of expressing dismay over his album purchases.
No but this is actually so sad???? big naughty was saying when his new album came it that the gans don't have to buy it because they can stream it.. but even that is taking away from the fans pic.twitter.com/Oqt3wyUKZt

The reason why he dreads his own album sales and continually begs fans to stop buying is due to the large number of autographed copies for pre-orders.

After signing so many (thousands), naturally, his wrist and hand hurt. So, he regrets agreeing to it.

Sure enough, many fans of BIG Naughty purchase knowing that autographed copies are guaranteed.
