While in New Orleans for a recent performance, Nicki Minaj received an RIAA platinum plaque from Cash Money CEO Birdman. The award is for Nicki's achievement with her latest album "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded" which was certified platinum after shipments of one million copies.
The award was given to Nicki a bit prematurely, as the album is actually 400,000 copies away from officially being a platinum selling LP. Retailers who stock albums only do so when they believe the record will sell convincingly after the shipments have been made.
What do you think of Nicki receiving her second platinum plaque?
