As stated you need to get to a truskill rank of 31 to get this achievement. The first time you get to 31 or higher, the next game you play will unlock the achievement.

You can check your current truskill by checking your position on the leaderboards.

About Truskill

Truskill averages your performance over the games you have played to calculate an estimated ranking. So if you have already played a lot of games it will be harder to increase your rank, as each game will only have a small effect on your "average" performance. If you have only played a few games then each game will have a big impact on your average and the achievement will be a lot easier. It also takes into account the ranks of other players which plays an important factor in ranking up. Each different game type has its own truskill rank so try to concentrate on the one game type when trying to rank up.

Checking your progress

To check your process towards the achievement go to the leaderboard of the game type you are doing and take note of your current ranking position, then scroll all the way up until you find the lowest person with rank 31 as this is where you need to get to for the achievement. After a match see how many ranks you have increased on the leaderboards.

If you need to move up 1000 positions and you are moving about 50 ranks per match you will need around 20 matches to get to kingpin. You will generally move up quickly at first but more slowly once you get to the higher ranks. This is not an exact calculation but it will give you a general idea.

To go from 29 to 31 it took me about 30-40 matches as I had already played many games of Big Ass Chains, if you have only played a few it will go a lot quicker.

How to achieve Legit

Pick a game type and become very good at it, you must win almost every time to keep your rank increasing. If you lose to a low ranked player it will greatly decrease your ranking, and will take a lot of games to get it back up. I would recommend playing an individual game type as you cannot be matched with poor players that will make you go down in ranks for losing. My personal preference was Big Ass Chains, as you can work towards collecting 500 chains as well. I was able to get to Truskill 29 legit, but being from Australia I had lag issues and couldn’t win regularly enough to keep it moving upwards.

How to Boost

You need at least 4 people to start a multiplayer game so if you can find 4 other people who want the achievement it will work the best.

As 3 of the players have to lose for the 4th to rank up it is the best if everyone has a 2nd xbox live account on which they can have the losses allocated to so that there main profile is not affected.

As I said earlier the truskill’s of your opponents effects how quickly you rank up, so if everyone is ranked 1 to start with it will take a long time. So before the boosting session play a few matches to get your truskill up a bit, to at least 15-16 which should not take long.

When you are all ready to boost all get into an xbox live party together so that you can communicate during the matchmaking process.

The hardest part of this process is to get matched into the same room as the game uses a matchmaking system. So all pick the same game type (as with the legit option big ass chains is my recommendation) and start searching, talk to each other about how many people are in the matchmaking screen via the coloured silhouettes and when you are seeing the same number you are likely to be in the same room.

Some tips for the matchmaking are to have one person search first to establish a room and then have the others try to find the room. You will probably spend more time matchmaking than playing but if you want it you will have to stick with it.

As there are not many people playing this game now you are highly likely to get the 4 of you in the one room, so have the person who is ranking up go to the drop off area and have everyone keep running over to it, once they have 10 chains drop them off and repeat until the game is over.

If you come across other players, you should send them a message to say sorry about the boosting and get ready for the abuse, which is deserved.

Once you get to 31 help your friends using your main profile as your high rank will help your friends rank up quicker.

All I can say now is good luck.
