Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" smash hit was certified diamond by the R.I.A.A. in October, but the Atlanta native just picked up his plaque this week. The 20-year-old showed off his new hardware from the record-breaking No. 1 hit to social media Tuesday morning (Dec. 10), with some help from Billy Ray Cyrus and Quincy Jones.
"Finally got the plaque. What do you guys think?" Lil Nas X captioned pics on Twitter. He celebrated the success of "Old Town Road" in what appears to be the legendary Quincy Jones' basement, which is filled with all of the awards and accolades Jones collected during his decorated music career. The 20-year-old posed for pics with the plaque — which is nearly as tall as the rapper himself — alongside Quincy and Billy Ray in a colorful suit.
Back in May, Nas X joked that when "Old Town Road" reached diamond status, he would gift all of his followers with a copy of season 3 of Phineas & Ferb on blu-ray. We'll see if he delivers on his promise, but for now he can bask in the glory of a life-size diamond plaque.
Check out the photos of Lil Nas X and his diamond plaque below.
