Salute to Tupac Shakur for the album “All Eyez On Me” certified diamond by the RIAA

Blog : August 4th, 2014

Tupac’s “All Eyez On Me” goes ten times platinum 18 years after its release.  Tupac’s 1996 album, All Eyez On Me, has earned diamond certification, according to the RIAA (The Recording Industry Association of America.)  The album, which features “California Love (Remix),” “How Do U Want It,” “Life Goes On” and “2 Of Amerikaz Most Wanted,” among other hits, has gone 10 times platinum 18 years after its initial release.

When All Eyez On Me was released, it earned less than perfect reviews. Rolling Stone awarded the album a 3 out of 5. “Even as a garden-variety thug, 2Pac shows more skill than most,” Rolling Stone said at the time. “He deserves to have all eyes — and ears — on him.”

Entertainment Weekly gave the album a B+. “Shakur has often made more compelling courtroom appearances (and movies) than records, but All Eyez on Me changes that dramatically,” EW said at the time. “Shakur belongs on Death Row — the rap hit-factory label, that is, which is also home to Dr. Dre and Snoop Doggy Dogg. With a slew of producers, including Dre and nearly a dozen disciples of his g-funk sound, the album swings nonstop for over two rambunctious hours.”
