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?

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.

quality of album does not equal good sales. some of hiphop's greatest works never saw platinum or even gold.
