For the last year or so things have been a whirlwind for Royce Da 5'9. With a new solo album in stores, an EP with Eminem in the bag, and an upcoming disc with Slaughterhouse in the works, things are going well for Nickel Nine.
Yesterday the Detroit rapper was rewarded for some of his hard work when he received a gold plaque for the EP "Hell: The Sequel."
Two of Royce's Slaughterhouse counterparts Joe Budden and Crooked I, were in attendance at the Majestic Theater in Detroit, as well as Bun B when Royce happily accepted the plaque from Eminem's manager Paul Rosenberg according to MLive.com.
It's the first certification from the Recording Industry Association of America for Royce.
