10. Lauryn Hill – The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill (Ruffhouse, 1998)
Released on August 25th, 1998, the debut solo album of the former Fugee Lauryn Hill set an unimaginable landmark for female MCs worldwide. Selling over 8 million copies and sweeping the Grammies for 11 nominations and 5 wins, The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill also claims the title for one of the highest selling debut albums of all time.

The album has also been declared one of the greatest albums of all time coming in at number 37 on VH1’s Greatest Albums of all Time list and number 312 on Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of all time.


9. Will Smith – Big Willie Style (Columbia, 1997)
Who would’ve thought Will Smith would be on this list? Released on November 25th, 1997, during the big screen take off of the Fresh Prince’s acting career, Big Willie Style has sold over 9 million. With numerous hit singles such as “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It”, “Just the two of us”, “Men In Black”, and “Miami” Will Smith returned to music industry with a bang after splitting with Dj Jazzy Jeff.



8. 2Pac – Greatest Hits (death Row, 1998)
Released two years after the death of Tupac Shakur, the double disc compilation sold well over 9 million records and included 21 hits as well as four unreleased tracks including “Changes.” The Greatest hits compilation is also considered one of the highest selling posthumous rap releases.




7. 2Pac – All Eyez On Me (death Row, 1996)
Released on February 13th, 1996, All Eyez on Me reached platinum status in just 4 hours. Selling over 9 million copies, the album is considered one of the most influential in hip hop history and is considered one of the landmarks of 90’s rap. The 27 track double album was recorded in a mere two weeks following a highly publicized 2pac arrest and qualifies for Diamond album status since each disc in a double album counts towards RIAA certification.

6. Beastie Boys – Licensed to Ill (Def Jam, 1986)
What has been dubbed the first rap album to reach mainstream success, Licensed to Ill was the debut rap album from the Beasties Boys. Released in 1986, Licensed to Ill became Columbia Record’s fastest selling debut record going 9 times platinum. It has been ranked amongst the greatest albums of all time by both The Source Magazine as well as Rolling Stone Magazine.


The album has also been recognized as the first major full-length album by a white hip hop group.

This is wrong. First of all....50 Cent only sold 6.9 million of GRODT.
Anyway, Will Smiths big Willie Style sold 9 million records, and so did Nellys Country Grammer. Im almost certain Beastie Boys have one that sold around 9 as well.

What about the Fugees The Score, that album sold like 17 million worldwide. It must have made some noise in the US.
