The Guinness Book Of World Records, is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a special hardcover edition.


Among the many entries in the book is a listing for the late great rapper,Tupac Shakur. Showing once again why he retains his icon status in the hip hop community and his icon status as the G.O.A.T. Rap artist of all time.The listing states “Biggest Selling Rap Artist, Tupac Shakur (36 million albums).


36 million albums, most are posthumous album releases.

R U Still Down? (Remember Me), a double CD of 24 songs selected from the over 150 unreleased works Tupac had recorded, sold over half a million copies and hit number five on the national pop charts in its first week of sales. It went triple platinum after that. Tupac’s mother Afeni Shakur has released six additional albums containing the unreleased music of her son, all of which were executive produced by Afeni Shakur. Record sales of Tupac’s posthumous albums have exceeded sales of 20 million worldwide, not to mention the underground albums and unofficial albums.


Truly Tupac is still a well love and widely sought after artist.

Larger in death than in life, his message is still as meaningful today as it was the day it was cut into wax; and the sales show that.
