    Red face this is interesting!

    Wu-tang clan first album sold 1 million second album did 4 million cuban linx went gold! liquid swords went gold! 6 feet deep went gold! I was in high school when these albums came out and everybody was bumping them even other school's. I don't get it there's albums out there that suck and sold more. I can't believe that cuban linx was one of the best albums and they only sold half million. 1995 everybody was bumping that album that album should have went 4 million and beyond. It's weird There was no internet not burn music back than so what gives?

    The game is like wrestling right now. ... I don't see any originality in it no more. Everything is a gimmick. It's not based upon good music. It's just based on hype now. You have to shoot somebody in order to sell some records. I put out good albums, but my albums never really sold nothing.

    In the US, the first album is almost at 2 million. Forever is at 4 million....over 2 million since it is a double. I remember 1 or 2 years ago that OB4CL was near a million if not already. That was about the same time when Ironman hit the 1 million mark. Yes, liquid swords is only gold




    Before 1997, not many hiphop albums went platinum relative to the last few years.

    Also I think they do not count overseas sales. In Europe Wu was the biggest thing in hip hop since Public Enemy and maybe Dre's crew back in the day. They basically opened up the hip hop market in many areas, especially with the Forever album.

    Peace.

    oh and that article is kinda fake, they imply that ghost on OB4CL 2 is another album of his even though it isn't.

    quality of album does not equal good sales. some of hiphop's greatest works never saw platinum or even gold.
    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)
