true man...props right back..if he at around 901,000 i'm hoping he don't take 5 weeks to pick up 99,000 records...i think over the next few weeks he'll steadily be doing 30-40,000 a week...plus he gonna drop a 3rd single, and it'll blow up (especially if it's the Em assisted Touchdown, which it's looking it will be)

i didn't get my hands on the bonus version, i've heard good things about it though...do what chu gotta do homie ;D

You don't have to sell 1 million records to go Plat; your label just has to ship 1 million records to stores.  It's entirely possible that the album will just get certified now if there's 99,000 copies of the album sitting on the shelves of record stores in America (which there might very well be) or if the stores have ordered more copies from the label recently.

901,000 sold.  That's what Soundscan tracks.  The RIAA tracks albums shipped, and issue certifications on that basis.  Paul Wall's first album went Plat even though it only sold about 700K because the label shipped 1 million copies.

^^^^ It happens a lot these days, and it's only likely to become more common now that record sales are down so much.

UGK On Topping The Charts: 'It Feels Good!' For Now ... (mtv news)

For two weeks in a row, two legendary hip-hop acts have debuted at #1 on the Billboard albums chart for the first time in their careers. Last week no other LP sold more than Common's Finding Forever,and on Wednesday, UGK were officially given the news that their long-awaited LP, Underground Kingz, is the highest-seller in the land.

Both well-respected acts have about 15 years of experience under their belts, so does their new place atop the charts bode well for the rest of the game? "Absolutely," UGK's Bun B answered. "The music is still here. People are still here to support you if you make good music.

"It feels good," he added. "But I really don't know how you're supposed to feel right now. We want to thank all the fans and the supporters who wanted to see this happen really more than we did. It's really vindication for the fans, for the cats who were fighting for years telling anyone who would listen that UGK was the sh--. It's really vindication for them."

While Bun is enjoying the group's long-overdue, well-deserved moment at #1, the Port Arthur, Texas, native says he has no delusions of grandeur.

"It's only for one week," he laughed. "[The soundtrack for] 'High School Musical 2' came out yesterday, so it's a wrap. We only have today. But it feels good today."
