2Pac's "All Eyez On Me" Achieves Diamond Sales

2Pac's "All Eyez On Me" has shipped diamond.

2Pac's 1996 album, All Eyez On Me, has earned the rare honor of achieving 10 million in U.S. sales, otherwise known as 'diamond' status. As of this week, the album has shipped 5 million copies, and since double albums count as two sales a piece, that number gets bumped up to 10 mill.

Few rap albums have achieved this feat. 2Pac's Greatest Hits is among the few, as well as OutKast's SpeakerBoxxx/The Love Below, Eminem's Marshall Mathers LP and Eminem Show, MC Hammer's Please Hammer, Don't Hurt 'Em, and The Notorious B.I.G.'s Life After Death. As you can see, plenty of the records with this status are double disc efforts. 

Watch the video for California Love, from All Eyez On Me below.

50 cent had two diamond albums and it didn't take 20 years.

Nope, none of 50's albums went diamond. GRODT is his highest and that's still only at like 7 mill. Pac on the other hand does indeed have two diamond albums now. But who cares about sales anyway - regardless of sales Pac blows 50 out of the water.

@Kendrick Lamar: Ay you can't deny that eminem has been shit for the past 10 years. That last album was so bad I still have nightmares

"Dear Mama" is the best song ever in music period, 2 Pac along side Bob Marley were the best musical artist ever, fuck you if you think otherwise

Outkast big tupac and eminem.. 4 examples of great hip hop artists

Reezy (T.I.N.T.)
- Aug 1, 2014

Don't know why yall even tryna put em in the same sentence as them but ok

Chimp Herder
- Aug 1, 2014

@Reezy (T.I.N.T.): because em is one of the goats dipshit

Reezy (T.I.N.T.)
- Aug 1, 2014

@Chimp Herder: compare ems catalog to pacs, outkast, biggies, kanyes etc. He has the least consistent catalog and ain't in the same realm as Pac.

Hiphopphilosophy
- Aug 1, 2014

@Reezy (T.I.N.T.): Eminem is more lyrical and has much better wordplay than Tupac. Andre 3000 is one of the few guys who can rap on par with Eminem. Maybe an inspired Kendrick too

Reezy (T.I.N.T.)
- Aug 1, 2014

@Hiphopphilosophy: well we know Wayne, Andre, pac, and kanye influenced Kendrick so what's your point? Eminem hasn't made one project up to par with a me against the world, aquemini, ready to die or a mbdtf. He has more duds in his catalog than anything. He's overrated.

NewLegends
- Aug 1, 2014

@Reezy (T.I.N.T.): are you fucking crazy? MMLP and Eminem Show are fucking classics. Encore and Relapse were his only real flops. He has accomplished everything Big and Pac have accomplished, if not way more. Eminem was a game changer for rap and will forever be one of the goats, and if you don't realize this you just being racist. Real recognize real my dude, so stop being a fake ass nigga.

@Reezy (T.I.N.T.): why you keep putting kanye's name on that list man!!

flex_gritter

@Chimp Herder: Only white people consider Em ones of the goats... I wonder why? lol

Hoof7
- Aug 2, 2014

@flex_gritter: Mostly because 90% of black people wouldn't put a white rapper ahead of a black rapper, even if the white dude had 30 diamond albums. Most black people don't relate as well to Em, so they don't consider him one of the GOATs. But shit, I don't relate to Pac, and I still consider him one of the GOATs. You have to base it on the success and impact that they made on the music world, not on the color of their skin. Cant deny that Em has made one of the biggest impacts of all time.

Vox Populi
- Aug 20, 2014

@NewLegends: Reezy is right though, none of Em's albums are on the same level as Pac's. Me Against the World < any Em album. All Eyez on Me > any Em album. Makaveli 7 Day Theory > any Em album.

"Every rapper who grew up in the Nineties owes something to Tupac," wrote 50 Cent. "He didn't sound like anyone who came before him."
