    Outkast, Biggie, and tupac all benefit from having double albums. You can cut those in half. It was written sold 2.6 in America, it sold 4.1 total worldwide.

    Just goes to show Jay ain't a true heavyweight icon. He can have all the #1 albums he wants but until he gets bold enough to drop on the same day as Eminem or Wayne, let alone artists like Adele, Taylor Swift, and Lady Gaga I will always consider the stats he lists as lacking context.

    Yea, Jay has never did numbers like that. I give him props tho, for faking it till he made it, in the sense of making the general audience believe that he was bigger than what he actually was...his made a career of that. Even managed to convince most that RD was a classic, and of the same stature and impact to the game as was illmatic.

    A hustler he is, and he's never denied it.

    My exact sentiments.

    Speakerboxx/love below actually sold half that.
    Its a double cd, so 1 purchase counts as two albums.
