Street's Disciple/464,522/2004

am i the only 1 who thought this album deserved a platinum plaque
yes. if he had made it one cd then maybe. the only 2CD he should have put out was the original I Am...Nastradamous.

and i too am suprised that It Was Written sold more than Stillmatic, although IWW was my favorite.

I am a big fan of both. For Nas to not be a "mainstream" hip hop artist those are some pretty good numbers. A lot of artists would be happy with one or two platinum selling album he has 6 of them. Think aobut how many top 10 hits he had in all of those albums. I can(no pun intended) think of two of them:"If I Ruled The World" and "I Can". BTW Streets Disciple sold around 600-700K those numbers are a little old.

THe Gift and the Curse is a 2CD set, RIAA counts 2 CD set sales as double. Meaning that it sold 1.8 but double is over 3 million.

Lol, the fu*k? I think you got it backwards. If he wanted to make it real big like you are saying (commercially) why would be reach out to Primo?
LOL like nas WASNT trying to be commercial when he did tracks with Puffy & Lil Jon....



BTW, i'm shocked Vol. 2 sold that much more than the rest of Jay's albums. definately not his best.

I have to admit, I slept on Nas. I remember buying Illmatic (I was old enough to buy it myself, but not old enough to remember the 80s, sadly), and I didn't like it. I sold it to my cousin. I liked Jay a lot better, I have all his albums, and I constantly listen to his stuff. But after hearing Nas' new songs, I want to get his new stuff, so I'm going around and buying his CDs. I have to admit, he is pretty good.

Nah man. Nastradamus was fully geared toward Commercial. I can't stand that You Owe Me song. I Am had Dr. Knockboots... if that ain't commercial what is?

Actually, the CD wasnt long enough. He shouldve sold as 800k, instead it's 400k. He shouldve added 1 - 2 more songs.

The reason the lost tapes did not go platinum is because it was not pushed to be album I mean I dont even remember a video if it had one all I remember was does lame commercials for it. The cd was hot tho. I did like nas last cd He should have sold more with that album it was straight heat on that album
