The 7th of November marked two months since the passing of Mac Miller. The rapper’s death struck the hip-hop community hard, not only for fans, but for the many artists he welcomed into his studio and collaborated with. A few weeks ago, the RIAA gave Mac Miller a posthumous certification for his 2015 album, GO:OD AM.
Mac Miller’s third studio album, GO:OD AM has officially hit gold status a little over three years after it’s release. The RIAA states the project received the certification on Oct. 26. The album featured appearances from Miguel, Chief Keef, Little Dragon, Ab-Soul and Lil B who recently shared his gratitude for the opportunity to be on the project. As the project hits gold status, Lil B revealed that it’s the first gold album he’s ever been on.
“MAC MILLER IS THE FIRST GOLD ALBUM LIL B HAS BEEN FEATURED ON,” he wrote on Twitter. “LOVE YOU MAC THANK YOU FOR BELIEVING IN ME!! I AINT EVEN GET A CHANCE TO THROW IT BACK AT YA BUT I GOT YOU LONG TERM BELOVED THANK YOU !”
