Future’s Self-Titled Album Is Now Officially Gold
You can chalk up another victory for Future.
According to the RIAA, the Atlanta rapper's self-titled album, that dropped in February, is now officially gold. In fact, it reached the 500,000 sale mark on April 25, 2017. This also marks the fifth RIAA award for Mr. Hendrix and the eight he's received from the organization in April alone.
In addition to that, "Draco" — a single off the Future album — has also reached gold status on April 25, and all of this coincides with the rapper's "Mask Off" single flying up the charts. As it currently stands, the song is No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.
All of this good news comes as Future is busy on his Nobody Safe Tour, which picks up again on May 9 in Jackson, Miss. Then two days after that he'll head to Bristow, Va., then a bunch of U.S. cities, before the tour wraps up in Camden N.J. on June 30.
By then, the Freebandz boss would probably have some new accolades under his belt, because he's been on that kind of winning streak lately.
