First rapper to bring a platinum plaque back to the projects
But you still wanna hate, be my guest, I suggest
Not many rappers from the Queensbridge houses were going platinum. At most, they went gold. To put this in perspective, Mobb Deep’s Juvenile Hell was a flop but The Infamous and Hell On Earth only achieved gold status. Nas on the other hand went double platinum when It Was Written came out in 1996. Even though he was becoming big, people still resented him.
Fun Fact: Cormega didn’t have an album until 2001, Khadafi, Roxanne, Capone, Infamous Mobb, Marley Marl and MC Shan were not able to obtain plaques in the 90’s. Some even took a hiatus from Hip-Hop.
Note that Nas was the first rapper to put the projects on his album cover
