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