Kanye West and Jay-Z’s ‘Watch The Throne’ Goes Platinum

    It might have taken a bit longer than Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV, but Kanye West and Jay-Z’s Watch the Throne has officially gone platinum. According to Rap Radar, the joint album was certified as of Sept. 15, or just about more than one month after the record was released in August. Personally, I’m interested to see how it continues to fare in the coming months and whether or not it can see some kind of late-2011, early-2012 boost in sales. I guess what I’m saying is that I’m surprising it took this long for Yeezy and Hov to push one million records together.
