I thought gold was 500,000 copies. Is it 300,000?

Double the 300000 plus copies because it's a double CD and his album is over 500000.

CalebOhio: I think i can speak for many others when i say my favorite rap artists are white but i still want black artists to be dope. they are chosing not to be. that wouldn't be a likely believe held in a white supremacist group. I want Nas to deliver evertime but he doesn't every time Sage does. so Sage gets my $15 regardless or his status. fuck your status perception and labels you use.

They do double it. Last week when Nas sold 250,000 or whatever, it was realy 125,000. RIAA doubles it first then releases it.

No
Those are Soundscan numbers, the number of actual copies sold.  When RIAA certifies an album they double those soundscan numbers for double CDs.

I don't think that's the case. Sorry I meant soundscan and not RIAA, since RIAA doesn't do the counting. My bad. I think when it's scanned it knows it's a double or some shit like that. I remember when Jay Z BP2 came out and every week it would show a big number and that number didn't double when it went to the billboard, and was certified at the number appeared on Billboard. Otherwise Blue Print 2 would be 6 platinum and we know that isn't the case.

aide note: I went to a house party about a week ago. 18-25 year old white kids  bumpin Encore, Reciting word for word and shit. I was just standin there laughin tryin to get drunk as fast as possible. Then it hit me, this is the fanbase that are buyin this shit and what the music industys main target is. Finally opened my eyes to the big picture and its pretty damn sad...Fuckin Sheep
Well, I'm white and I'm of that age you just mentioned, but sure as hell I will never ever learn the words to Encore. I didn't even manage to fully listen to it once, as it's crap as hell.

Anyway, that's probably the main reason why Eminem and Luda can push way more units than the others in that list. Their fanbase doesn't just stick to true hiphop lovers: kids of all ages listen to Eminem, no matter what other music they listen to. And besides that, many of the younger kids just listen to Eminem because that's what they call "hot". If they would have been listening to true hiphop, half of the other kids would say their taste in music sucked. Therefore, maybe Eminem shouldn't even be listed here, since it's more popmusic than hiphop. Possibly the #3 in the list is more hood than him.

That's bullshit man.  Anyone that pushes at least a million can be considered pop music.

How many copys did "Wu-Tang Clan - Enter the Wu Tang: 36 chambers" sell? A whole fucking lot, and it wouldn't even come to my mind calling that pop music.

^that makes no sense, and about what the other guy was saying, i think the music you listen to has a lot of peer influence, like someone might like beatles, but be embarassed of what other think, so he listened to rap, or the "COOL THING", cause basically right now, as a teen, the cool thing is either to listen to punk or rap, you gotta choose a side...

I don't think so.  The album is getting good reviews and overall it has been received positively.

Pop=popular music.  You're a pop artist if you're sellign big.  You don't have to be making pop music.  bUt, you're a op artist once you move a giant amoutn of units.  I definitly think it's BS to call "Encore" pop music too.
