Interscope Records is pleased to announce that Time Served by Moneybagg Yo has been certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America. Released via N-less Entertainment/Interscope Records at the top of this year, Time Served is the Memphis-born rappers third major-label album.
After arriving in January 2020, Time Served earned Moneybagg Yo his third trip to the top five on Billboard’s Hot 200. The album sold 66,000 equivalent album units in its first week and is the southern wordsmith’s highest debut yet. On the star-studded project Moneybagg Yo teamed up with artists such as Future, Da Baby, Lil Baby, Megan thee Stallion, Summer Walker and Fredo Bang. While his album continues to stream his hit singles like “U Played ft Lil Baby” (a Tay Keith produced track which has amassed nearly 200 million streams globally has received rave reviews, with Complex describing it as a song “begging to be played in a car with irresponsibly large speakers.”) and “All Dat ft Megan Thee Stallion” (which became a global favorite on TikTok with over 2 million videos made to the song) have gone to reach platinum status.
Time Served drew acclaim from outlets such as Forbes, Billboard and Complex who described it as “one of the crown jewels” of his discography, meanwhile Revolt praised him as “undeniable across the board when it comes to music.” Time Served arrived on the heels of his May 2019 release, 43va Heartless which featured guest appearances from Gunna, Offset, Lil Durk and Kevin Gates. That project debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 and his song “Dior (feat Gunna)” was ultimately certified platinum by the RIAA. Since the release of Time Served Moneybagg has shared the deluxe version of the album, and the song of the summer “Said Sum,” which currently has over 41 million views on YouTube. With impressive streaming numbers, countless views and a certified gold album under his belt Moneybagg Yo will continue to prove that he is a top contender and dominant force in hip-hop today.
