But what Em did was silly
Eminem’s commercial success is so much more than everybody else’s it’s just silly: he’s estimated to have sold 75 million records, while the next closest rapper is Jay-Z at 50 million.
More in tune with the previous line, those rappers moved a million units of their biggest albums in the first week, but the success of Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP was ridiculous: it moved 1.7 million! Eminem sales are estimated in 95 million, more than 100 if you count the D12 albums.
