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 around a 172 million records worldwide.
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.
Another fact check: Eminem Show broke record of fastest selling album at that time, by hitting million copies in 3 days; This album also made top of the chart even though it came out in the middle of the counting week, which is supposed to be damaging to the numbers. Accounting in the fact that album was leaked and was forced to release early, this is, and will be, still a huge number.
