7 day theory wasn't counted or that would make 5 albums for pac


If life after death is counted then all of pac albums after death should be counted

yes only albums released while they were alive obviously

nobody is counting all those 2pac albums with the same songs to different beats
could have counted makaveli tho

sh*t was released like 3 weeks after he died

and if thats the case, how they counting Life after death when that sh*t came out after BIG died?

no AEOM obviously doesn't count because your list says he sold 9.5 mil US....even though AEOM did 9 mil US itself....unless you're saying the other three only sold 500k combined?

this list is only the US that is why JayZ is so high and Em, Pac and Biggie are so low. Worldwide that list is totally different.
2pac was the highest selling rapper in the "US" until last year when Em over took him

this list makes no sense

Pac is the higest selling black rapper in the US and worldwide

Jay is in 3rd and Pac has sold like 20 million more (In Total), even though a lot of his records have not been re-certified for over 10 years..

Only rapper who has pushed more units than Pac is Em in the US and worldwide (edit seems i was wrong about EM's US sales, i thought he would have overtaken him by now)

Pacs greatest hits went Diamond last year, making him one of the few rappers to do that

Not sure why they are only counting 4 albums

Also AEOM has been stuck on the 9 million mark in the US (last re-certified in 1998), MATW was like 3 Plat, so that would be 12 million just off two albums..

here are the official US sales on RIAA

i'm pretty sure they only counted 4.5 mil for aeom

just cause riaa doubles the sales for double albums, doesn't mean that's how many units were actually sold and that's what that list says
RIAA is the official body so whatever they say goes, they provide all the plaques, without them you can't claim "sales"...rapper A cant say he sold 100 million unless the RIAA makes it official.

2 sales = 2 albums = for which you pay more £/$

RIAA has absolutely nothing to do with counting sales, they just issue gold and platinum plaques, and only if the artist or label pays for it

go read my 3 replies above
like i said figures have to be provided to RIAA with evidence such as royalty statements etc..ofcourse you have to pay for the big shiny disc to hang on ur wall, the plaques have come to represent the "figures".

Pac as it stands has sold more records than Jay z in the US and worldwide.

Em on the RIAA site is 3million short of Pac in the US, however he is ahead worldwide, not sure how much by.

Every rapper dreams of that Diamond Plaque
