Kanye West's 'Yeezus' Finally Goes Platinum

(Radio.com) Kanye West's Yeezus might not have earned the kind of first week sales that people boast about, 327,000 to be exact, but he's more than made up for it in the recent months.

According to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), Kanye's latest album has gone Platinum after seven months for the album's release.

This means that's all seven of his albums—The College Dropout (2004), Late Registration (2005), Graduation (2007), 808s & Heartbreak (2008), My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (2010), Watch the Throne (2011) and Yeezus—have officially all gone platinum.

With seven Platinum records, Kanye is now tied with other hip-hop acts such as OutKast, LL Cool J, Beastie Boys, Snoop Dogg and Nas. Jay Z currently holds the record for most Platinum albums for a rapper with an unprecedented 15. more on this story
