I find it to be pretty damn hilarious that overseas record salea are known to be far from accurate, yet these same sales supposedly pushed eminem ahead of Pac. I think even Ray and Stevie can see through this bullsh*t.

dude the RIAA is lazy as sh*t, they're late as hell and just don't care

soundscan keeps tracks of sales on a weekly basis, and that chart is soundscan, and there was a billboard.com article last year that said em has officially passed pac, that list there is as official and as accurate as you can get, stop trying to argue with facts and sh*t you see right in front of your eyes
Nosense....

"Nielsen SoundScan is the sales source for the Billboard music charts” (Nielsen SoundScan PR). It is NOT all-inclusive so it should be remembered that not all sales "scans" are reported to the SoundScan system as only reporting member's can be counted."

The mere fact is Nielsen SoundScan only counts "reporting members" i.e people who sign upto report the figures, makes it useless and unreliable

with the RIAA the artist or his record label can audit the correct figures from ALL shipped sources.

Pac has sold more as it stand in the US if you count every album pre and after death and he has the official figures and plaques to show for it as well as a Guinness Book of World Records entry.

RIAAjust issues the plaques

sometimes they issue a plaque way before an artist gets the sales to achieve it. Sometimes they dont issue a plaque until way later. they also count double albums twice

Soundscan keeps track of sales figures. . .although sometimes they understate it. . .

Not as simple as that i'm afraid

"Nielsen Sound Scan, who began counting in 1991, counts only albums sold via over the counter record sales in music retail markets. They have over 14,000 registered outlets, however this is not accurate enough to get an idea of the true figures.

When the RIAA auditors calculate album sales; they count the number of albums shipped, subtracting all returns and albums used for promotional purposes – this includes music retailers, mail order retailers, Internet retailers, mail order clubs, direct sales, and TV advertisement sales. By counting ALL sales the numbers will be significantly higher than simply counting music retailers."
