How, 80% of that list doesn't do big numbers outside the US. Not everyone is Kanye/50/Eminem/2Pac when it comes to worldwide numbers.

you would have certain albums higher on the list... for example the 50 and eminem albums for sure. i'm not an expert on worldwide sales but i know certain artists do better than others with overseas sales

these are not worldwide numbers these are only US please keep that in mind.

I donno why we dont get a worldwide list, why does that not count I mean a buy is a buy anywhere

just checked numbers are also wrong, not all of em tho
bc the US is the only place that uses the soundscan system. thats why any numbers from outside of the US aren't as accurate

I don't bother with RIAA Certs because that Double cd counting twice is bulls**t. Soundscan is way more accurate.

If you go by Total number of units sold Hammer still has the top spot.

Sigh....I think what he was trying to say is that if Jay-Z were to die TODAY (God forbid) his numbers would jump. Just like Michael Jackson, he sold while he was alive but once he died collectors and fans started buyin up all his albums again for nostalgic value and his numbers grew tremendously. Once Pac and Biggie died people went out and started buyin albums like crazy to show their support and remorse.

i tell u what though if jay z died today.. his record sales would go straight to the top.. and prob surpass everyone....


these cats is worth more dead than alive, look at michael jackson... dude done sold over 30 million records since he died, less than a year ago! he might be the only artist to reach a billion records sold world wide one day and im sure he will... hes over 750 million already
You really didn't just compare Jay-Z to Michael Jackson right? Those 30 million albums you talking bout are mainly from international sales, only about 7.9 are US numbers, I remember reading this on mtv.com. Jay-Z wasn't as big of star as MJ internationally, duh, so obviously I don't believe his numbers would skyrocket to surpass everyone, he would have to double his output, come on fam, MJ might reach 40 million before June 25, Jay-Z might, might reach 10 million before a year is up if he died today. You also have to keep in mind that the genre of music can reach more people than hip-hop, MJ was internationall loved by damn near everyone from all countries, never met one person that didn't like Michael Jackson, I know plenty n*ggas don't care for Jay.
