Tekashi 6ix9ine is officially a platinum selling artist.
Despite how you feel about 6ix9ine, it's hard to deny all that he's accomplished in a short amount of time. He finessed his viral antics into Billboard charting singles and working with some major artists in the game. After the release of his debut project, Tekashi managed to have five songs simultaneously charting on the Billboard Hot 100 and debuted at number four on the Billboard 200. A few weeks later and 6ix9ine has made another major accomplishment in his career.
Tekashi 6ix9ine's "GUMMO" has officially gone platinum, according to RIAA standards. The song marks his first platinum record and officially makes him a platinum selling artist. The release of the remix with Offset definitely helped bump streaming numbers up. It's only a matter of time until his other two major singles hit platinum status.
The rapper took to Instagram to share the news. "TAG EVERYONE WHO HATE ON ME 😭😭 I live for this shit. KOODA GOLD KEKE GOLD Everything platinum," he wrote.
With two gold plaques already underneath his belt, he's definitely about to have a good year if he keeps his momentum up.
Over the past few days, the rapper teased a remix to Rich The Kid's "Plug Walk." It's unsure whether it's his next release but it's definitely sounded pretty good. Hopefully, we'll see that release soon.
