Solo Rappers with 5 or more platinum albums...

L.L. Cool J (6)
- Radio
- Waling With a Panther
- Mr. Smith
- Phenomenon
- Mr. Smith
- Mama Said Knock U Out

He dropping no mo platinum albums.


Too Short (6)
- Life is Too Short
- Short Dog's in the House
- Get in were you fit in
- Shorty the pimp
- Gettin it
-!!tails

Originally forgotten, people forget about the super impact Too Short had from the West to the South. You can thank the bias hip hop heads for this. "Cocktails" is timeless.


Ice Cube (6)
- Amerikkkas Most Wanted
- [rip] Certificate
- k!ll at Will
- The Predator
- Lethal Injection
- The War and Peace vol.1

Cube say fucc that corporate rap !!. He's keeping it independent. He's keeping it 100 for now on.


Snoop Dogg (7)
- Doggystyle
- Tha Doggfather
- Da Game is to be sold, Not to be told
- No Limit Top Dogg
- Last Meal
- Paid Tha Cost to Be the Boss
- R & G

Snoop is a certified hit maker, so if he decides to keep rapping he could drop some more plat. material.


Nas (7)
- Illmatic
- It Was Written
- I Am
- Nastradomus
- Stillmatic
- God's Son
- Street's Disciple

I don't expect him to drop no more than one more plat. album if that.


Jay Z (11)
- Reasonable Doubt
- In my Lifetime
- Hard Knock Life
- Life and Times of Shawn Carter
- The Dyn@sty
- The Blueprint
- The Blueprint 2
- The Black Album
- Kingdom Come
- American Gangster
- The Blueprint 3

Interesting to see how many more Jay can carve out.


Busta Rhymes (5)
- When Disaster Strikes
- E.L.E. Extinction Level Event
- The Coming
- Anarchy
- Genesis

Originally left out, Busta is the definition of underated. Hard to see him dropping any more platinum albums tho, but Busta is unpredictable.



Missy Elliott (5)
- Supa Dupa Fly
- Da Real World
- Miss E...So Addictive
- Under Construction
- This is Not a Test

Originally left off the list...Missy gets her props.


DMX (5)
- It's Dark and Hell is Hot
- Flesh of my Flesh, Blood of my blood
- And then there was X
- The Great Depression
- The Grand Champ

Originally left off the list...my bad...DMX one of my fav. 5. SMH at myself. Been a while since I put him play.


Eminem (6)
- Slim Shady Lp
- Marshall Mathers Lp
- Eminem Show
- Encore
- Relapse
- Recovery

I don't think Em will rap long enough to catch Jay.


Ludacris (5)
- Back for the First Time
- Word of Mouf
- Chicken and Bear
- Red Light District
- Release Therapy

Luda!!!

Luda would have caught up and maybe passed most, if not all of these cats had it not been for the downfall of album demand. He's still in elite company, tho and might be able to do some more damage.


T.I. (5)
- Urban Legend
- Trap Muzic
- King
- T.I. vs T.I.P.
- Paper Trail

He got a good chance to pass some cats up seeing is how he got the machine working with him. He's is certified hit maker like Snoop, so I expect him to drop some more platinum material.

This is a dope thread but to be honest, I dont think that anyone will surpase Hova...Well at least in the near future...I do agree with you Sadly Nas will most likely not have another Platinum album :(

Nas is still G.O.A.T. tho

and finally, i don't believe snoop presents tha eastsidaz can be considered a snoop album, i mean it's right in the title lol
I took the Snoop album off. Good call.

I'm not adding greatest hits albums, since some people got a problem on that, but don't get it twisted...I respect greatest hits, it's just a little confusing when the meaning of the word album pops up and the thread title does say album so techincally, I did the right thing by leaving them out.

Your Em arguement lame considering that his group !! ain't listed.

I'm not calling him the Goat, but seven platinums is impressing.

Pac got 4 while alive and more while dead. I didn't list him, bcuz I don't know if his dead albums should be counted or not. Don't get it twisted tho, 2 Pac one of the Goats.

luda is one of the most educated and thoughtful rappers in mainstream hip hop. lol
conceptually, theater of the mind is above most of what has gone platinum in recent years. so...

Selling a lot of units does not make your album good, it just means a lot of people paid for it and gave it a listen.
