2Pac’s Greatest Hits Goes Diamond

It took 13 years, but last month, 2Pac’s Greatest Hits earned a diamond certification. Pac now joins MC Hammer, Notorious B.I.G., OutKast, and Eminem as the only rappers to crack the 10 million mark domestically. 21 gun salute!

    Lmao u know it gotta be sum white boy talking bout eminen but to be honest I like eminent but makavelli is the goat I’m sorry its between him and Brad Jordan for me how can u be black and not feel wat he was talking bout on the 7 day theory that’s got to be one of the greatest rap CD’s of all time listen to wat the man is saying he was too real and spoke the. truth that’s why they had to kill him just listen to that CD I got it when I was 13 and sum of it I cudnt understand till I was a grown man HOW THE FUCK CAN U NOT FEEL THIS NIGGA!!!!! ofcourse a white boy is gon sell those numbers I’m not even hating cuz eminen is a beast but he got white and black buying his shit pac spoke to so many ppl on so many levels you can be down about how things is going in life smoke a Jay and listen to pac cuz all he talked about was the struggle fuck the haters bamma mufuckas!!!

  • Mojo

    I love how some of you just love to jump up and down because of some numbers that don’t mean what you think they mean. “He really sold 5 million/4.25million, blah blah blah…it was a double album blah blah blah.” For starters most double albums cost the same as two albums (All Eyez on Me is STILL $19.98 at Best Buy), but this is besides the point.
    Then its Eminem is this and Eminem is that. At the end of the day we talking about money and who has alot of it.

    Everytime Eminem, 50 or whoever out of that camp sells 6, 7, 10 million, many of you assume that they are getting paid. Dr. Dre is getting paid. Jimmy Iovine is getting paid. Those other artists are getting change. It’s about the deal they signed. How is it everyone knows how shady the record business is, but automatically assume that when 50 and Eminem signed, they got the Shawn Carter or Percy Miller or the Hammer deal. You kidding? Sorry for your hopes and dreams about your idols.

    Arguing over some shiny trinkets. I rather have that Jay-Z money over those Eminem plaques everyday of the week.

    For the record, Eminem is great. Tupac is great. The list can go on. But arguing about who sold more as a method to gauge one persons greatness over another makes as much sense as saying Kareem Abdul-Jabber is greater than Michael Jeffery Jordan because he scored more points. Different times, different eras.

    AS AN MC EMINEM IS BETTER THAN 2PAC! EMINEM IS THE BEST LYRICIST OF ALL TIME!

    EMINEM WASN’T A RICH WHITE KID! HIS LIFE WAS SHIT, WHILE 2PAC WAS STUDYING BALLET, POETRY AND ACTING!

  • http://uknown hiphopguru

    @justsaying n all other haters, u say em will do what pac did in 15 yrs, in 3yrs?..LOL pac was only in the rap game since his 1st album, 91 or 92 then he passed in 96. a total of 5 yrs at best, n hes sold over 80 million, + 7 or 8 movies, almost 20 true albums, clothing line, in hip hop hall of fame, 1st rapper to ever produce a double disc, and he has atleast 4 of those. so NO eminem will NOT accomplish what he did in 3 years!! eminems 1st album, was infinie (GARBAGE). and it was released in 1996. its now 2011. thats 15 years in the rap game= 7 albums and 1 n 1/2 movies. LOL. as far as record sales maybe just MAYBE hes sold more than tupac, and if so there numbers are extremely close, if afeni were to release another album (and she has it) it will go platinum and its possible for 2pac,makaveli,tupac the Man listed in guiness world book of records for most rap albums sold to take his throne back. and all this downloadn song excuses, STOP! pac didnt have,web n ect. 2 boost sales remembr it was 1990′s
