Toosii has come a long way from his start as an opener for his South Coast Music Group labelmate DaBaby’s tour. Now, he’s celebrating his path to stardom on his 21st birthday weekend with a new gold certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
In an Instagram photo shared on Sunday (January 10), SCMG CEO Arnold Taylor remarked on the two-year journey he shared with the “Red Lights” rapper while presenting Toosii with his inaugural gold plaque for 2020’s “Love Cycle” featuring Summer Walker.
“Congrats and Happy G Day at the same damn time,” Taylor wrote in the caption. “#LoveCycle gold already and you have exceeded your early goals. Keep applying that pressure lil bro, we going platinum next.”
With Toosii’s first plaque, Toosii joins an elite list of artists to receive certifications from the RIAA within the first 10 days of 2021. In addition to Lil Nas X’s historic 14x-platinum certification, nine other Hip Hop and R&B acts went either gold or platinum.
