Hey ninja’s, it your boy Hormel Jay and I am here with some news. Last week, the R.I.A.A released its latest Gold & Platinum albums and singles list and spotted on the list was Tech N9ne’s single “Caribou Lou”. You can read Strange Music’s press release about the platinum status single below.
In 2012 Tech N9ne earned his first gold record with “Caribou Lou.” A remarkable achievement for the independent pioneer.
Now, the legend of “Caribou Lou” continues.
According to the RIAA, as of June 20, the song that has launched a million hangovers has gone platinum!
Going platinum is one of the highest achievements for a recording artist. Every single person who steps into a studio dreams of selling over a million units, and for Tech to do it all independently is a remarkable achievement; one that was not lost on him and, the songs co-creator, Krizz Kaliko.
So congrats to the homie Tech N9ne for earning one of the music industries top honors for a single. And for those ninjas who have been living under a rock for the past 5 years or so and haven’t heard of this song peep it out below!
