Kanye West’s ‘Yeezus’ Album Goes Certified Platinum
Kanye West wins again with his ‘Yeezus’ album going certified platinum. Currently the Def Jam rapper is close to being charged with assault on a 18 year old who yelled a racial slur at his fiance, Kim Kardashian. Despite his troubles, Yeezy sells records.
The RIAA tweeted Kanye that his ‘Yeezus’ album has sold over one million copies. The polarizing album has gained mixed reviews but the numbers do not lie. One million people thought the album was worth purchasing.
On February 13th, West will start the second leg of the ‘Yeezus’ tour which has already grossed $25 million. No matter what you think of Mr. West, he’s able to be successful in selling albums. Each of his albums have went platinum even during the illegal download era.
Congrats Mr. West.
