Vince Staples' "Norf Norf" earns a major milestone.
While undoubtedly talented, opinionated, and artistically avant-garde, Vince Staples remains somewhat of an enigmatic figure. His recent drop Big Fish Theory was an experimental blend of hip-hop and deep house, which went on to debut at number sixteen on the US Billboard charts; the album yielded a total of 24,000 sales, 14,000 of which were physical albums. And while his latest project continues to earn critical acclaim from those in the know, it would appear one of Vince's older and most recognizable jams has been continuously accruing value.
It has been reported that Staples' Summertime 06 single "Norf Norf" has officially been certified gold. The Clams Casino track is widely recognized among Vince's defining bangers, and has proven a longstanding staple in his live set. In fact, during his ongoing co-headlining tour with Tyler, The Creator, "Norf Norf" delivered one of the biggest responses across the board. Apparently, Vince was presented with his plaque on Friday, February 23rd, following a sold-out show at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
"Norf Norf" is Vince Staples' first RIAA certification, so congratulations are in order. Fans can catch the West Coast rapper on tour right now, provided it's not entirely sold out (which it probably is). Luckily, Vince intends on embarking on a solo tour; while short, it might give fans a chance to catch the Big Fish Theory rapper before he moves on to his next endeavor.
