Jayson Musson Got A Platinum Plaque For Being Sampled On Baauer’s “Harlem Shake”

Because sometimes the universe is fair and just.

January 16, 2015

Sometimes, rarely, the universe is a fair and just one. As FADER explained, visual artist Jayson Musson was sampled on Baauer's explosive 2013 single "Harlem Shake," which sampled from Musson's "Miller Time" freestyle inspired by a fist fight with a rival graffiti writer. Today, the artist shared an image of the 2x platinum plaque he received commemorating over two million copies sold—and over two million people flailing spastically to a screwed loop of his voice. No word if the Con los terroristas! guy got some hardware as well.
