Lauryn sold 10 million off one album, Eve had platinum singles w/Alicia, Gwen Stefani, her own tv show & clothing line. It doesn't get more mainstream/ pop than Missy's biggest singles. Foxy&Kim had platinum albums & shaped the sound of NY female rappers, Latifah had her own sitcom, Trina was on billboard with hits, etc- I appreciate the love but I never said that.ใ‚ฌ20ๆฝnow what I DID say is right here for anyone w/their own brain to decipher words on their own. I know it's hard in the social media band wagon era, but try. It's fun. . When I came out, there had been a drought of a few years where NO female rap album had gone platinum, females weren't getting budgets, the industry did NOT believe in the female rapper anymore. They had stopped generating MONEY for labels. Ask any rap historian or just anyone with a brain. These are facts and nothing but the facts.

Hard Knock Life' on Roc-A-Fella Records and Def Jam Recordings. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ € As of 2013, the album was said to be Jay Z's most commercially successful album. It was certified 5x Platinum by the RIAA in 2000 and has sold over 5 million copies in the United States. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ € From the humble beginnings of his first album to 'Vol. 2... Hard Knock Life', fans experience an evolution of this iconic lyricist.

While the first two albums are for true "hip-hop heads", this album catered more to the mainstream, by sampling songs from other genres such as the musical "Annie" for the hit song, "Hard Knock Life". The critically acclaimed album was ranked number 46 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 100 greatest albums from the 1990s. It also was his first album to peak at 1 on the Billboard 200. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ € The album even won a Grammy Award for Best Rap Album, but Jay Z refused to come as a form of boycotting. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ € The New York native told MTV, "I am boycotting the Grammys because too many major rap artists continue to be overlooked.
