Paper Trail is headed toward platinum status:
Regaining hip-hop’s position at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 charts this week is T.I.’s Paper Trail, which has officially been certified gold selling over 568,300 copies after only seven days in stores. According to the Nielsen Soundscan, Tip may indeed be the “King of the South” as his latest effort marks the third consecutive time he’s received the No. 1 debut and the second time since 2006′s King that he’s gone gold within a week’s time span. The Grammy-winning rapper’s long-awaited sixth album offers fans a steady mix of mega superstars including Jay-Z, Lil’ Wayne, Justin Timberlake, Rihanna and more, along with production by DJ Toomp, Swizz Beatz and Kanye West who created the star-studded hit “Swagger Like Us.”
T.I.’s swag is definitely on extra high at the moment. He’s sold a ton of albums in his first week and…well, that’s about it, but that is way more than enough. If you’ve checked the album out, let us know if we should help this cat get to platinum status by telling us what you think about it.
