The June 2018 RIAA certifications are quite astounding.

It should go without saying that hip hop is currently dominating a lot of the music industry, and the sales have all to show for it. This month we got Drake’s Scorpion, and it did so well, that we had to give Drizzy his own section.

In highlights, we have Cardi B’s “I Like It” finally go platinum, Rae Sremmurd’s “Powerglide” hit that sweet status, along with Trippie Redd’s “Dark Knight Dummo” hitting the 1 mil.

On the album spectrum, XXXTENTACION’s ? posthumously goes gold, right next to Rich The Kid’s debut finally hitting the half-plat status. Check out all of the June 2018 RIAA certifications for hip hop below, and visit the official RIAA site if you want to learn more here.
