Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Thrift Shop” Goes 4x Platinum

Make it 4 count them 4 times platinum. 

Fresh off their Saturday Night Live performance, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ hit single is officially 4 times platinum. According to Chart News,  “Thrift Shop” which features Wanz added roughly about 326,000 copies sold this week to bring the duo to 4,204,000 total.

What was the last Hip-hop song you remember going 4 time platinum or even better what independent record for that matter?

As an Unsigned Hype alum, Macklemore continues to impress and push his voice to bigger audiences outside of just Hip-Hop. One thing is for sure, “Thrift Shop” isn’t going anywhere any time soon! 

Add mega-chart topper to his resume please….

Mac Miller’s “Donald Trump” Goes Platinum

Donald Trump won’t be to happy now that Mac Miller’s hit single officially went platinum.

Remember that time Donald Trump called Mac Miller the next Eminem? Then opted to threaten to sue the young Pittsburgh emcee? Well, Mac’s having a good ol’ laugh as his hit single is officially platinum. That’s right “Donald Trump” has amassed over a million copies sold.

Benjy Grinberg who serves as the President of Rostrum Records released a statement on the platinum status. “Today is a day that will go down in Rostrum Records history. Mac Miller’s “Donald Trump” has gone platinum. This is Mac’s first platinum single and Rostrum’s first totally independent platinum song. To think that it started as a free mixtape song and now has sold 1,004,363 copies is unbelievable. Very proud over here. Thanks to everyone for their support, and to all the fans for loving great music. Here’s to more platinum hits ahead!!!”

Its just a matter of time till Trump opens his flap for attention, right?

Mac Miller and his Most Dope family are currently featured on MTV2’s latest reality series titled Mac Miller & the Most Dope Family.
