A big shoutout to Nelly, whose debut album Country Grammar was certified DIAMOND (10 million records sold) by the RIAA as of July 21, 2016. RIAA awarded Nelly his diamond plaque Monday night at a Musicians On Call event in Philadelphia.
HOT SHIT! It’s going down down baby, your street in a range rover…
For real though, Band-Aid-on-the-face Nelly deserves this more than anyone. The OG hit maker. The King of Swag himself sells 10 million copies to go diamond. Country Grammar becomes a certified classic. Look at the only other Hip Hop albums to go diamond:
2Pac ‘All Eyez On Me’
2Pac ‘Greatest Hits’
Eminem ‘The Eminem Show’
Eminem ‘The Marshall Mathers LP’
Outkast ‘Speakerboxxx/The Love Below’
The Notorious B.I.G. ‘Life After Death’
MC Hammer ‘Please Hammer, Don’t Hurt ‘Em’
Beastie Boys ‘Licensed to Ill’
Now Nelly can where his album as a grill as he raps Grillz. I’m taking some journalistic liberties and assuming that has been a dream of his for awhile.
