The emotion and anger showcased on the album has been admired by a large part of the hip-hop community, including other rappers. Ronald « Riskie » Brent is the creator of The 7 Day Theory cover painting. George « Papa G » Pryce, Former Head of Publicity for Death Row, claimed that « Makaveli which we did was a sort of tongue-in-cheek, and it was not really to come out, [but] after Tupac was murdered, it did come out… Before that, it was going to be a sort of an underground. » The album peaked at number one on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and the Billboard 200. The album generated the second-highest debut-week sales total of any album that year, selling 664,000 within its first week in stores.
