Pen Griffey’s got another plaque. Less than seven months after its release, Bryson Tiller’s debut album Trapsoul has gone platinum.
The Louisville crooner took to Instagram to make the big announcement. “so a few days ago, we told everyone that this album went Gold,” he wrote. “They actually told me it went Gold a month or so ago but wanted me to wait until my Radio City Show to tell people. Well…. Right after the show they surprised me and told me that T R A P S O U L is officially a Platinum Album.”
thank you for making T R A P S O U L
a Platinum Album.

He thanked his fans for their support, adding, “words cannot explain how i feel. thank you if you bought this, you changed my life.”
Released in October, Trapsoul has spawned a series of hit singles including “Don’t,” “Rambo,” and “Exchange.”
But Pen Affleck isn’t done working. He was recently in the lab with DJ Khaled. The producer-mogul Snapchatted their studio session, adding his now-famous catchphrase to let fans know that they’re “up to somethin’.”
Earlier this year, Tiller told Hot 97 that he’s got his sights set on other ventures as well. “I know it’s kind of early, but I really want to start branching off and doing things other than music, like doing my own TV show and making a video game,” he said.
