When it comes to hip-hop, its rarity to see hip-hop albums reach the status of diamond. In fact, there have been seven other Hip Hop albums to achieve the diamond milestone, which marks ten million records sold.
However, another album has just reached Diamond status and believe it or not that album is Nelly’s debut album, Country Grammar.
The RIAA announced it and presented Nelly with a diamond plaque at a Musicians On Call event in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania last night (July 25th).
The other Hip Hop albums that Nelly’s Country Grammar now sits alongside are: Tupac’s All Eyez On Me, Eminem’s The Eminem Show, Tupac’s Greatest Hits, Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP, OutKast’s Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, The Notorious B.I.G.’s Life After Death and MC Hammer’s Please Hammer, Don’t Hurt ‘Em.
