Tech N9ne’s “Caribou Lou” single has went gold after selling over 500,000 copies.  The Strange Music co-owner was named to Billboard’s Urban Power Player’s 2012 list, which features the people with the most clout in the urban music industry. 

From a press release, the Kansas City native said, “[M]y fans are the reason this [the gold record] happened and I can’t thank them enough.  To know that they love my music and continue to support what I create is truly a beautiful thing.”
