The Numbers Game: Tha Carter IV Goes Platinum + Bad Meets Evil Goes Gold

Yeah, that picture up above is still funny to me. But then again, Lil’ Wayne still has reason to jump for joy. In what was basically a foregone conclusion last week, Tha Carter IV goes ahead and “offcially” crosses the million mark to add yet another another Platinum plaque to Tunechi’s collection.

But Weezy’s isn’t the only person geting hardware this week as Royce Da 5’9″ & Eminem (aka Bad Meets Evil) see their album, Hell: The Sequel, grab a Gold plaque. Of course Eminem wipes his ass with Gold plaques, but I’m happy for Royce since this is his first one ever.

Other than that, all is kinda quiet on the album release front (Other than Cole World dropping in a couple of weeks). Check out the full sales figures below.
