Though its been 15 years since his death, the demand for music from the late Tupac Shakur is not waning. Just weeks after what would have been his 40th birthday it's been announced that the rap icon's Greatest Hits album released in 1998 has been certified diamond by the RIAA.

According to HipHopDX, the album has now surpassed Pac's previously top-selling LP, 1996's All Eyez On Me, to become the late rapper's first diamond-selling project.

Last month, the firebrand MC was in the headlines when a currently incarcerated Brooklyn man named Dexter Isaac confessed to the 1994 robbery and shooting of 2Pac in the lobby of Quad Studios in New York City.
