Took 17 years and... 13 albums? More? But he finally did it.

Also, whoever owns death Row now needs to update those sales figures. It hasn't been updated in over a decade I've heard...

I don't know where they got those numbers but RIAA still has PAC as the top selling rapper at 38.5 million and that's not even counting the 4-5 million Makaveli sales

Like I said it's off Soundscan

But just to estimate from the verifications...

2Pacalypse - 500,000
Strictly 4 - 1,000,000
Thug Life - 500,000
MATW - 2,000,000
AEOM - 5,000,000 (double album)
7 Day - 4,000,000
Greatest Hits - 5,000,000 (double album)
R U Still Down - 2,000,000 (double album)
Still I Rise - 1,000,000
Until - 2,000,000 (double album)
Better Dayz - 1,000,000 (double album)
Loyal to the Game - 1,000,000

That's about 24 million, estimating closer to the next verification would probably get the # I first posted

Jay-Z had a big record company buy 1 million of his units. This doesn't count. Jay-Z stole his way to the sales if this report is true.

Naw this is soundscan sales, and they don't count those million sales

However the RIAA do and Pac still outselling him on their charts

Those equal 24 million and my OP has 29 million, if it's off by 5 million then that still makes the tweet accurate.

So the Soundscan #'s on mine are roughly accurate

I don't know why RIAA has different #'s incase anyone wants to drop insight on that
