But now they have another reason to celebrate.
MAOT debuted at No. 1 on the New York Times bestseller list, keeping the streak from the duo's previous projects: 2015's The Rap Year Book: The Most Important Rap Song From Every Year Since 1979 and 2017's Basketball (And Other Things).
While that feat is something to be proud of on its own, MAOT's best-selling distinction makes Serrano and Torres the first Mexican-Americans to have three separate books on the New York Times' bestseller list.

Anyone who's aware of Serrano's online presence can note that the San Antonio native, who attended Southwest High School, has marked the accomplishment in ways true to his persona.
