Tech N9ne Earns First Platinum Record With ‘Caribou Lou’!

Published: June 27, 2017 in Krizz Kaliko, Strange Music, Tech N9ne by

In 2012 Tech N9ne earned his first gold record with “Caribou Lou.” A remarkable achievement for the independent pioneer.

Now, the legend of “Caribou Lou” continues.

According to the RIAA, as of June 20, the song that has launched a million hangovers has gone platinum!

Going platinum is one of the highest achievements for a recording artist. Every single person who steps into a studio dreams of selling over a million units, and for Tech to do it all independently is a remarkable achievement; one that was not lost on him and, the songs co-creator, Krizz Kaliko.

The pair took to Instagram to reflect on the monumental achievement.

Wat-loaf, Zebra, Fat boy, Fat Ass, Mon chi chi, “you suck”, you’ll never make it unless you put make up in your face, “How are you gonna sing & Rap”, things that people might say to you before you go platinum. CARIBOU LOU!!! Certified platinum record. Written by Aaron D Yates @therealtechn9ne & Samuel W.C. Watson #krizzkaliko Thank you to the fans that have been ridin with along this journey.
