Future Racks Up Seven RIAA Plaques in April
We don't know if you've heard but, Future's been winning big time as of late. That much becomes abundantly clear when you take a look through the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) database and see the Atlanta rapper's earned a whopping seven plaques this month alone.
If you've been following the rapper's accomplishments this year, you're probably not surprised to learn "Mask Off"--which is a cut from Future's self-titled album released back in February--was certified platinum on April 14. "Low Life," which is a Weeknd-assisted single from last year's EVOL, was certified triple platinum that same day.
Future's Drake-assisted "Used to This," which dropped last fall, also finally earned platinum status this month. The track doesn't belong to any of Future's actual bodies of work, but it's definitely a banger, as its recently gained platinum status pretty much indicates.
The Atlanta artist's Monster track "Fuck Up Some Commas" has also been earned that rarefied platinum status this month. "Blow Me a Bag," a track from Future's borderline seminal DS2 has sold 500,000 copies, going gold this month.
Last but definitely not least are the golden plaques for Future's Pluto (2012) and Honest (2014). Interestingly enough, Future tweeted out, "Um going platinum everyday," just last week, and he's definitely right--or damn close to it.
Future's clearly doing big things in 2017, and we hope he continues to do more as the year goes on. But for now, let's celebrate what he's already accomplished. Salute to Future.
