The Aftermath: Eminem’s Old Albums Outsell the Competition
Yes, Eminem's eighth album, "Marshall Mathers LP 2," entered the Billboard Hot 200 at No. 1, selling close to 800K copies. But the most interesting news is that he brought along with him a few of his little friends. His seven previous albums also returned to the top albums ranking.
For this segment of The Aftermath, the best music discussion on the 'net, hosts Billy Johnson Jr. and Soren Baker are joined by HipHopDX senior writer Andres Tardio, who helps put the Detroit rapper's accomplishment into perspective.
"It's pretty phenomenal, especially when the 'Marshall Mathers LP' dropped in 2000," Tardio said. "So you take that amount of time and he's outselling rappers who dropped albums this year."
In other news, The Aftermath tackles a couple brewing feuds, including Hotstylz's Eminem diss "Rap Fraud," Kendrick Lamar's dismissive comments about Drake, and Maino's fuming Twitter exchange with Trinidad James.
