At this point, Kanye West’s mantle must be so overflowing with golden awards that he’s going to have to start stashing them in his garage next to the Lamborghini Murciélago.
This week, Kanye’s sixth solo album, Yeezus, was certified Gold by the RIAA for shipping 500,000 units. While the album is still on the cusp of selling a half million copies – sitting at 497,00o copies as of press time – the album will almost assuredly hit that benchmark in the near future as it’s been selling steadily since it’s June release. Thus far, Yeezus is the seventh album to ship Gold or Platinum in ‘Ye’s illustrious career.
Kanye West’s Yeezus is available now and can be found in retail stores and on iTunes here.
