Nas was on several shows right before HHID dropped and most of them said he has 7 platinum plaques, meaning all of his brand new studio albums have gone plat (excluding Lost tapes and the remix album). SD sold 700,000 but it is plat because it is two discs. I remember Nas was on 106 and park right when Stillmatic was certified plat cause Free announced it. Plus, there was a source article talking about the top 10 emcees to take Jay and Big's crown for KONY and they had facts and strong points of each artist listed. This article came out shortly before Streets Disciple dropped and it said Nas' average album sales are 1.3 million per album.

streets disciple only sold 500,000 but since it was a double cd that counted it as double the sales..so it went it platinum
No it went plat. period dude. The 80 minute rule wasn't crossed. The double disc was just to make it look bigger or maybe to keep people listening to it?

Either way 1 sale counted for each album sold. Not disc.

HHID will go platinum. All his albums go platinum. It took Illmatic 7 years to go platinum. HHID is on its way to going platinum. Over time, it will be.

Nas hasn't gone platinum since Nastradamus

Stillmatic, God's Son and SD were on that list. I don't know if you have to pay an annual fee to keep certifications or something, because those joints were certified plat in the database

Edit: And to those who seem to be confused, going platinum doesn't mean SELLING over one million records, it means you had that many records shipped to stores. Nielsen Soundscan doesn't translate to RIAA certification. So if you've sold 810,000 albums you've most likely shipped over a million to stores.

And like cats said SD didn't meet the minimum running time to get double certification per album shipped so each (although it was a double album) registered as one unit

YEah all his albums went Platinum except HHID. It really doesn't matter to him because he has proved to consistently sell records on each album. This new one is like at 700k or something like that but that don't really matter to him. I'm pretty sure he has recouped the label money and put some in his pocket. At the end of the day it was successful.

Every Nas album has went Platinum, And many have gone Double Platinum, The only Nas album that hasn't hit plat is HHID. Even that wack sh*t Streets Disciple went plat and I bought that sh*t too, it was counted as a regular disk because it was short minutes, If Nas had recorded one more wack track for it it woulda technically went double platinum...

I liked disc two of the album. I think if he would of took the last few tracks from disc 1 & took that wedding song off disc two (and maybe War) then it would have been a really dope album.

Yeah you are correct. Not hundred minutes though. 80, and SD is like 75.
Nah, it was longer than 75 because otherwise it would have fitted onto one disc. I think it was around 85-90.

It's all good. Hip hop is dead is a GREAT album. I don't know why it is being slept on. I mean 700 k isn't bad at all. That's better than most emcees/rappers in the game, but.. It would be great if Nasir Jones can get platinum on this. If he releases the Hustlers video........... By the next week the album will have been platinum. Believe that.

Those numbers from the RIAA site are weird because I know Illmatic, IWW, I Am, Nastradamus, Stillmatic, and God's Son were all certified platinum on their site. Like, I remember God's Son was released on 12/13/02 ("Friday the 13th my CD drop"), and I know that it was certified platinum sometime in January 2003.

But, keep in mind that the RIAA tracks shipments, not sales.

SD did not go platinum, it was not counted as double because of that length rule
