N.W.A. and Wiz Khalifa have also received plaques from the RIAA.

The internet has recently pointed out that one can not occupy the same space as a J. Cole Stan without being told how their favorite rapper went platinum with no features, and now, they have even more ammunition, as "Wet Dreamz," the single from the corresponding Cole album, 2014 Forest Hills Drive, has also earned a platinum plaque.

The single is one of a few notable certifications from the RIAA, which has also reported that ScHoolboy Q's Oxymoron has gone platinum, as well as Rae Sremmurd's debut, SremmLife (along with the singles "This Could Be Us," "Throw Sum Mo," "Come Get Her," and "No Type," the last of which going double platinum). Wiz Khalifa's "Black & Yellow" and "Roll Up" have gone 6x platinum and 2x platinum respectively, and N.W.A.'s "Straight Outta Compton," the title track from their breakthrough album, has also finally hit platinum. Also of note, Jhene Aiko's 2013 album, Sail Out, has achieved gold status.

The RIAA incorporated streaming into its certifications earlier this year, which has seen an increase in acknowledgements as of late. You can read more about the recent changes in the formula here.
