It’s a good week to be 6ix9ine.
After Showtime announced they were hard-at-work on ‘Supervillain,’ a documentary about his troubled life and rise to fame, Hulu unveiled their non-fictional account of his life via the Vikram Gandhi-directed film, ’69: The Saga of Danny Hernandez’ this week (click here to watch the trailer).
As if the critical acclaim that’s accompanied the latter isn’t enough to celebrate, the Recording Industry of America (RIAA) has given the rapper (born Daniel Hernandez) yet another reason.
Friday (November 13), the RIAA announced ‘TROLLZ’ – 6ix9ine’s second duet with Nicki Minaj – had met its threshold for Platinum certification, a measure that denotes sales equivalence of 1 million units in the United States.
The win comes as the duo’s second joint effort to be certified such as their previous collaboration, 2018’s ‘Fefe,’ sits at 8x Platinum – 2 million units shy of Diamond status.
On the Billboard Hot 100, both songs were top 5 smashes with ‘Fefe’ peaking at #3 at the height of its popularity while ‘TROLLZ’ topped the tally earlier this year.
