List Rules Double Album Sales Will Be Combined

These albums show that hip hop has gone far since "Rappers Delight". Imagine in 1979 if you told someone that a white boy would rap and would go diamond. Twice. It shows the dedication of hip hop fans. The albums range from classics (Doggystyle, The Score, The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill, The Chronic, The College Dropout) to not-that-good albums (The Massacre, To The Extreme, Please Hammer Don't Hurt Him). These are the best selling hip hop albums ever.
