    U Really Have To Discount The Double cds Though Because Soundscan Counts Them As 2 So Outkast Sold 11 million But Its Really 5.5 Because It Was A Double Disc..Still Good Though

    that was dope to see, my boy Hov was at 5m for Vol.2…I remember that sh*t. Pac did Diamond on All Eyes On Me and The Greatest Hits, thats crazy dead or alive. Eminem Show my favorite Em album all-time and that joint went Diamond. I just think Em peaked lyrically, musically and commercially on that joint…damn nostaliga all in the air
