    Default wow 36 Chambers !!!!

    According to RZA !!! 36 Chambers sold between 10-20 Million albums worldwide. Wow, that is huge. He said they stopped counting after the album sold 2 million. This is one of the hardest records ever !!! I see why Y-Kim is hating on RZA for sitting on Mills

    Don't get this all twisted....it went 2x platinum which they received a plaque and a royalty check. Once the label stopped keeping track they no longer paid the Wu-Tang or Rza and no evidence (plaques) were issued. They just kept pressing up records and THEY (the label) made money off it. This is true for many albums.

    Are u crazy ? they still got paid off the album after the counts stops. Michael Jackson is still getting paid today off his old albums. It's called "Residual Income".

    that really is really well, considering they spent $36 000 on it. Can't be too many albums with that kind of budget and sellin 20 mil.

    most of the times you see what an album has sold, they count US sales only!! ..so if SoundScan said that Cuban Linx sold platinum, it might still have sold 5 million copies worldwide.
