Rap Quiz: Bet You Can't Pick The Better Selling Album

DJBooth_logo2x

We took a break last week to let your brains rest (and because we were busy partying getting handed struggle rap CDs at A3C), but we are back with another exciting, brain-bustin' rap quiz!

According to the famous statistician and numerologist, Jay Z, "women lie, men lie, and numbers don't." While album sales don't necessarily prove everything, they can't be completely ignored. After all the whole point of making an album is to, you know, sell said album. It is in the spirit of the numbers that we present to you the next installment of our Rap Quiz feature. Bet you can't pick which album sold more...

The premise is simple: we give you two albums from the same artist (this time). Your job is to pick which LP has sold more copies. Once you think you know the answer, click the link and you will be taken to a stream of the album. Good luck and, as usual, if you cheat on an online rap quiz you suck.

Kanye West: College Dropout vs. Late Registration
And with 3.4 million copies sold the winner is...

Jay Z: The Blueprint vs. The Blueprint 2
And with 2.7 million copies sold the winner is...

Eminem:  The Marshall Mathers LP vs. The Eminem Show
An with 11 million copies sold the winner is...
