Lil Wayne’s Rebirth Reaches Gold Status

It may not be “a milli,” but Lil Wayne’s experimental rock LP, Rebirth, has reached gold certification—that’s 500,000 units moved—according to the Recording Industry Association of America.

Although the incarcerated rapper has only officially sold around 393,300, as tallied by last week’s Nielsen SoundScan report, the certification means that Weezy’s label, Universal, has supplied stores with over half-a-million copies of the disc since being released on February 2.

As previously reported, the New Orleans-bred superstar’s overall sales figures are impressive considering the album leaked months before it was officially released.

Wayne is currently serving a one-year jail sentence on gun charges in Riker’s Island. —Elan Mancini
