Forbes reports today that in just October alone, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper received not one, but two gold plaques – one for the sales of his meaningful ballad “One Man Can Change The World,” the other for his Mike Will Made It-produced “Paradise.” Prior to that, the Drake-featured smash “Blessings” earned RIAA platinum status this summer, as did his 2012 throwaway single, “Guap.” (Guess the latter was a slow burner.) Oh, and as for his biggest hit to date, “IDFWU”? It went triple platinum in September – a year to the day of its original release.
