Artists have a number of milestones that they can look back on as markers in their careers: The first song the wrote, the first time they heard themselves on the radio, the day their album dropped, and many more. And Rich Homie Quan just celebrated a special one: His first platinum plaque.
The Atlanta native smiled from ear-to-ear and expressed his gratitude as he received the plaque to commemorate a million sales of YG’s “My Hitta” — which owes much of its success to an infectious hook from Quan.
He was given the gift during a going away party attended by friends and family in anticipation of his spot on Wiz Khalifa’s Under The Influence tour, which kicks off on July 24.
“I’m getting ready to go on tour — my first tour — and I’m very excited. I thank all my supporters and everybody who came out here to show me love,” he says in the video.
