Greatest Hits is a double disc greatest hits album for American rapper Tupac Shakur, released in 1998 on Death Row Records, Amaru Entertainment and Interscope Records. The album's non-chronological sequence highlights 2Pac's career; the 21 popular hits, with some songs edited for legal reasons, are accompanied by four previously unreleased songs: the dead friends tribute "God Bless the Dead", the dedication song "Unconditional Love", the tough talk "Troublesome '96", and the album's single "Changes" also helped 2Pac earn the first and only posthumous Grammy Award nomination for Best Rap Solo Performance. Some tracks have alternate mixes, while "California Love" makes its first proper album appearance after only being available as a single prior. In June 2011 the album was certified by the RIAA for shipments of over 10 million copies, 2Pac's first RIAA diamond award. In addition, the album has edged out the 1996 album All Eyez on Me to become Shakur's best selling album.
