Jay-Z Awarded A Platinum Plaque For ‘MCHG’


On the day of its official wide release, Jay-Z—the official #NewRules broker of hip-hop—has been awarded a platinum plaque for his Magna Carta Holy Grail. Though the album is projected to hit No. 1 on Billboard and its retail numbers remain to be seen, Jay sold a million records to Samsung in an unprecedented deal that forced the Recording Industry Association of America to re-write their own rules, now counting digital album sales. In the above photo, which was originally posted to RIAA’s Facebook page just a few moments ago, Jay is seen with RIAA’s Executive VP of Communications Jonathan Lamy; Executive VP Mitch Glazer; and Director of Communications for the Gold & Platinum Program Liz Kennedy. Congrats Hov.
