Other projections for the week are The Roots at 21-24k, and Usher at approximately the same figures.

    The Elvis Presley of rap, if he wasn't white he wouldn't sale as much as he does.

    To REALI11111..your trying really hard to not come off as a hater but deep down you are...born 1985 listening to hiphop for 15 years and ppl think Em the GOAT because he`s proven it. check his track record..hell wikipedia him. Since your seasoned vet at this shit... you would know that EVERY ARTIST hes ever been on a track with he`s either bodied or outshined Biggie..pac..Jayz...kanye...wayne...drake....busta....LOX...Sticky(sick verse)..Game...gunit..RBX...snoop..T.I (might have got him there)....xzibit...Royce(tie on bad meets evil)...fat joe..mase..shady records...the list goes on and on the guy came up battling his way to the top literally..and hiphop is a sport...you can have the number1 teams from each conference with the same record but the only way you can really compare the 2 is HEAD 2 HEAD. to the guy that said platium plaques are like championship was dead on the money too.. we get it..your an old head and you like your golden era cats but let be honest eminem would destroy any of them now HEAD TO HEAD on track....TUPAC is top 5 but not seein em,.. Biggie got me into this shit but em prove to me on dead wrong love it or hate..Eminem has had an remarkable impact on game...since hes been in it, the game always changes in between his album hiatus...after SSLP..DMX was scorchin...after MMLP...nellly and luda came in and south was rising JAYZ VS NAS...after TES..Ja rule starting singing and the spinners and bling really took off...after Encore...everything went hardcore and the south took over... 10 years later hes still on top...yeah hes not as wild with random punchlines but lyrically he`s the best hes ever been(rhyme schemes,syllaybles, etc..) IMO there is no Greatest of all time( its like saying whos the best qb of all time BUT theres is aleague GOATS which Em is DEFINITELY apart of...right now 2010..hes the best in the game hands down..

    i dont know why people are feelin this album

  • Twinblades

    Reality1111 I see your asking alot of questions about hip hop and Em. So I'll give you my opinon. I've benn listening to hip hop for a lil bit not as long as these heads but for some time now. And to tell you the truth most hip hop music bores the shit out of me. Most of the artist that these heads like I don't even lsiten to or would care to. I know that makes me sound ignate but I don't realy care lol. I feel like hip hop is getting better but Em is not going to be the cause in that. There's still going to be shit rappers and there's still going to be shit music made. Also unlike most of the Em dick riders on here I'm not a fan of his... and recovery was decent at best. I think when it comes to liyrics Em's one of the best to do it. But to me that's about it... I much prefer big boi's album. I think it just sounds way more fun. Wich brings me to my last bit I listen to a lot of Japanese rap that stomps on American hip hop music artist like Kreva, Diggy-MO', COMA-CHI, M-flo, L-Vokal, Ohga & SOUL'd OUT. Just those few destroy most of the crap that comes out here. Do yourself a favor and expand your hip hop game think international and you'll be supprised by what you might find. Also all you faggits stop bagging on Asher Paul Roth damming he ain't no Em but he's still talented. Smh

  • PDizzle83

    I love reading all this... Its so funny, I wonder if Em reads this shit when he's got a break from being the #1 SELLING ARTIST OF THE FUCKING DECADE LOL! He's sitting on MILLIONS of dollars, sitting on at least 4 classic albums that resign ate the walls of hip hop for decades to come. For all you haters, 2Pac is G.O.A.T. I have to agree, but don't think for one minute that when the great Eminem goes and his time is over that people won't consider him to be the greatest. I think Shady was the best thing to ever happen to hip hop, he took it to new levels, skills that are unheard of. When the white boy dies then you'll see, he'll be the greatest thing by far! To me he is already!

    • rickreserve

      alot of niggas on here are underacheiving faggot ass niggas who aint got nothin else better to do then to talk down about a motherfucka cause they never amounted to shit.opinion is opinion it is what it is,but hating thats a whole nother ball park that you catch they bitch ass in.

  • FuckEm

    Em is alwys on point , so he gets more sales , Just like Ye , Jay n Weezy.

  • Reality1111

    Guys, you are all right. I am an idiot. I actually have an Eminem shower curtain so every time I'm in the shower I can think about him. My favorite rapper besides Eminem is Mike Jones.. I think his lyrical aptitude combined with his unprecedented delivery skills makes him Number 1. Anyone who disagrees I am willing to spend the rest of my day arguing with to prove my point because I honestly can't remember the last time I held a job or somebody hung out with me.

    • Reality1111

      Forte I see what you are saying. I'm not really focusing on the sales department though. You obviously know you're stuff, I'm really looking at the bigger picture. So what if you got sales, etc. Its basically bullshit, because you're not going to make an impact any more selling a number. Its like swiping your card through a bar stripe. Its a process. I know you've said you listen to hip hop about 12 years. I've listened to hip hop 30+ YEARS!! and I'm roughly the same age. So I'm basically asking people who are claiming to be the best. Biggest Em fans, Em is the best, etc. What makes you the best more than loitering outside Best Buy, playing Em at a party, having an Em cd in your rotation. Hip hop has to be at its pinnacle for the rapper to be the best. I'm not hearing anything about the motivation for what exactly Em or his fans are talking about. What is it about? 1.Getting pissed and watching a horror movie. 2.Complaining about girls getting overemotional. 3.Look in my medicine cabinet like I'm looking for a box of cereal. 4.Have so much passion, and emotion and to do exactly what? I'm trying to get laid, eat, make money, work out, every day and night end of story. I don't want to hear this bullshit, I'm trying to make moves. I want confidence, I want to know what the fuck I'm doin making power moves son. That's what I do. I make money. I want to wake up and do shit have energy. Help people, do shit for people. Who gives a fuck about my inner self. Lets get this money son red lobster style. I'm not overphilosophin on this shit, because nobody is doin a goddam thing anyway. I'm not starin in the mirror lookin for myself I already know what the fuck I gottsta to do end of story. If I sit and waste all this time looking for my innerself and going through struggles and changes and all this metaphorical bullcrap, I'm not going to do anything!!! If you want to listen to Eminem go paint a fuckin house that shit ain't hip hop. Ozzy Ozzbourne, Elvis, Michael Jackson go battle with those dudes. We did that shit already. We're supposed to be going fowards, not backwards.

    • Reality1111

      HAAAAA!! Mike Jones that shit is funny I didn't write that shit.

    • yeayea

      Forte is the name, when you make that much sense it's like the ppl on here can't process it. I, for one, agree with you but don't waste time here. The most intelligent debate you'll get out of it is probably getting called a dickrider lol

    • Cheryl

      I have enjoyed your posts Reality1111 and you are 100% correct with everything you posted. Most people on here get offended when you question their favorite rapper even if you're not saying anything negative. I was a huge fan of hip hop I'd say in the 90's. Keep it up.

    • staqz2high

      lol anyone u annoy da slightest wit half the comments on this page can atleast feel better when they REALIZE1111 the sad mental and lonely depressive state u must be in to have wasted half ur week thinking u outsmarted someone on the internet (as if u did, and as if it mattered if u did!)

    • forte is the name

      You know, I've been on hiphopdx for almost a year now and never written a comment, but you've honestly made me make a user name just to understand what YOU are doing. Are you writing a research paper or something on Eminem fans? It seems like ever post you write you want to find out the magic ingridients of "why" people like Eminem. I understand you're a 35 year old white dude that listened to Keith Murray, Das efx, Group home, ect.. And I know where you're coming from.. I'm a 27 year old white guy that grew up 45 min north of New York City, and I have listened to hip-hop since I was 15, so about 12 years.. But what you have to realize is that hip-hop has obviously changed.. Back in 84-95, rappers weren't concerned with sales because there WASN'T SALES IN HIP-HOP. They just made music because they loved it, and if people listened to it, then good, if not, then they didn't.. NWA came out and sold a ton of albums because of their controversal subject matter.. From that point on, to go platnum (which was and still is one of the greatest accomplishments for any musical artist) as a rapper, you needed at least ONE commercially viable/controversial single.. You could have the most rugged, boom bap hip-hop album ever, because ONE to TWO singles would sell the album.. And your most beloved artists with all the classics had that formula (Biggie with Juicy/Mo Money Mo Problems, Big Pun with Still Not A Player, Nas with If I Ruled the World, and even your probably beloved KRS-One with Step Into Our World).. A ton of rappers went platnum because they were smart and followed that formula, and there are a list of rappers who didn't follow the formula and failed (as far as going platinum is concerned), even though they are top-notch lyricists (Canibus, The Lox, I'm sure there's a bunch more I just can't think of right now).. But from 2005 on (Internet age), the formula is completely different.. The goal is still platinum, you can say that sales don't matter and whatever you wish but that's the BIG accomplishment for any musician, and you need sales to get it.. It's the same in any industry, whether it's a Grammy for an Actor, a MVP or championship ring for a sports player, a Tony award for a musical, ect. Nowadays, the formula to go platinum is that you need at least 3 to 4 commercially viable songs, and you see this over and over again, (Jay-Z - Empire State of Mind/Forever Young/On to the Next One, Lil Wayne - Lollipop/A Milli/Ms. Officer, T.I. - Whatever you like/Live Your Life/Dead and Gone, Eminem - Not Afraid/Back Down/Love the way you lie, Drake - practically whole album).. You can't hate on these artists, because they know the formula for success (which yes, is sales.. if you come out with an album and sell 50k, you're not successful, at least not in the music industry), and they're just following the script.. So you see, to make you understand a little better, the game has just changed, and that's the only thing that's constant, change.. And if you want to be successful, then that's what you need to do.. As for Eminem, I think he's a great artist.. Honestly, when I first started listening to him, I just thought his shit was funny.. It made me laugh.. You can't honestly say songs like "As the world turns, Guilty Conscious, and My Fault" didn't just have you crack up cause they were so funny.. That's just some of things I feel like Recovery lost, even though I think it was a really good album.. Shit, my favorite track on there is "On Fire", and Em even says that's not a song.. But I like to really nit pick at the lyrics, and Em really comes hard when it comes to lyrics, not to say there aren't a bunch of great lyricists (Lupe Fiasco, Jay-Z, Nas, Mos Def, Immortal Technique, ect) Now, I wouldn't say Eminem is the best rapper, because that's strictly opinion, but what's not opinion is that he's the most ACCOMPLISHED rapper.. Dude has sold more albums than ANY rapper in the history of the game.. More than Jay-Z, Tupac, NWA, all the greats, so that says something.. I don't want to get into number 1 albums, or Grammy's or anything, cause I don't know specifics, but I know for FACT he's sold the most, so you have to respect that, regardless.. My advice for any hip hop fan though is to just stick to the mixtape scene, cause even the dudes that do their thing for the industry to make those sales still go hard on mixtapes (Lil Wayne - No Ceilings, Lupe Fiasco - Enemy of the State, J. Cole - The Warm-Up/The Come Up, Wale - Welcome to the Feature, ect).. Although there is plenty of good music that's come out this year for the true hip-hop head, don't get mad when others go more commercial, cause their only following the Blueprint.. There's some insight for you from an Em fan.. Sorry this was long as fuck, but I only plan on stating my opinion once and then moving on, unless there's some conversation with some SUBSTANCE that comes out of it.. Thanks for reading everyone!

  • REALITY222222

    Yo reality11, you need to stop typing. I read about 3 comments you made and it's clear your era of hip-hop did not "end" at 1996 because you claim to still be an avid listener AND you are obviously not that old.. Your logic is about as air tight as the titanic. Shutup

    • Reality1111

      yeah but are you trying to sell the album to somebody and advertise for it? That's what I want to find out here.

  • Reality1111

    I don't have to go over to Big Boi's comment page to post. I don't have to go over to Ice Cube's comment page to post. I don't have to go over to Game's comment page to post. You know why? Because I understand those dudes the way they do what they do, I understand what their music is, lyrics, etc. I know what I'm going to get over there. So I'm going to piss off some of you Em fans apparently because I'm just going to stick around Em boards and that's it. Because I don't understand this dude or his fans. I don't understand what he's trying to say. What is the message. I know the albums, I know the songs. I listen to the lyrics. I'll never say I hate it, or I hate the music. But I don't repeat the lyrics after I hear them. And you Em fans can at least give me the time of day because at least I'm making an attempt to get into the Em phenomenon more without hating the dude. So he's the best. #1 emcee of all-time its Eminem right? If all your going to do is tell me to get a life or go fuck myself when I'm at least making the attempt to do what it is you respect out of Em. Which is putting passion and effort into the game. Then this dude ain't even in the Top 100. Its as simple as that.

  • DRO'dUp

    That fuck you mentality I'm the best shit doesn't work. It may work to get you places, but its not going to make you the best. Its 2010. That Fuck You I'm the best mentality is played out. You have to take a different approach if you want to improve. You can tell me to fuck off like I said I don't give a shit. But you're not going to improve and surpass me by sticking to that mentality. It doesn't work, plain and simple.

  • Reality1111

    OK great so I got some information about new rappers etc, that I will listen to. That was the most productive thing here. What I'm going to post now is this. You're not going to be the best if all you do is insult people. Eventually that just doesn't work. I'm not trying to lecture people, I'm not trying to tell you what to do. I'm reading some information that some of you wrote and then I'm responding or posting by giving out some information that I may think is helpful or just good to read somebody else's opinion. I'm not here to insult anybody. You can insult me 2 billion times I really don't give a shit because its words on a computer that shit doesn't mean anything to me. However I may get some useful information about your era of hip hop 1997-2010 to understand more about your era of hip hop. My era of hip hop was 1984-1996. That is when I listened and was involved. So if you want to tell me to fuck off, or go fuck myself etc. you're wasting just as much time as you think I may be wasting. One thing though is the way it is. You're not going to be the best by insulting people.

WHITE PEOPLE CAN'T FIGURE ME OUT I LISTEN TO RAP SO THEY CALL ME THUG. I PLAY CLASSICAL PIANO, THEY CALL ME GEEK, I LISTEN TO POP THEY CALL ME GAY, I LISTEN TO REGGAE, THEY THINK IM DUMB, THEN I SHOW THEM MY IT DEGREE AND THEY SAY IM A TOM. LOL YOU WANNA LABEL ME, I LABEL YOU. EMINEM IS A WANNABE CRACKA. HE HAS A LIL DICK AND HATES BLACK PEOPLE! IT'S TRUE THEIR ALL ALIKE. That felt great.

      "hates black people" ---> thats why his best friends and closest collaborators are 50 Cent, Dr. Dre, and Proof, right? and why he's in songs with lil wayne and kanye west and drake? you're right, that would make sense.

    • Big Rico Sucks

    reality1111 your a loser. I mean a major lose. You spent half your day trying to lecture everyone on the blog....im scrolling down this page and all I see is your faggot ass every second get a life.

    • DRO'dUp

      JJF is a dumbass.. Lol REALITY1111 he just got hes pussy hurt cause you statin facts and they cant face the truth. All they wanna believe is that nobody not even legends can touch him and that's sad how they live in denial.

    • Reality1111

      That's stupid and I just got back on the form here. I'm trying to get information from people. Its not a lecture son. I'm typing like they are typing I'm not telling people what to do. A lecture is when you tell people what to do. You talk and they listen. That is not what I am doing. I'm trying to exchange information.

  • Nico 3

    Pete - It's not uncommon for record labels, movie studios, etc. to project higher sales. They're trying to dominate the marketplace with a tactic has been going on for decades. If Eminem wasn't still popular and if Relapse hadn't of sold, then maybe you could say Interscope "padded" the numbers. But let's face it. The dude is more popular than ever, and with big albums being delayed every week, he can practically control the charts now and easily push Drake aside.

  • jwspcr

    That's whats up. I'm a have to cop it soon. www.platinumcatbeats.net

    Recovery was weak..

    • Reality1111

      I'm not bothered by shit. I'm typing you're reading, You're typing I'm reading. Don't read too much more into anything else. It is what it is.

    • thedudeabides

      Reality seems to be getting pretty bothered but this... he has emotions like a female lol!

    • Reality1111

      I agree with that. If all these Em fans are just insuling people and trying to shit on them left and right when they're not even really even saying anything that's going to stop them from doing what they are doing then Em is defintetly 100% not the best IMO. Look I'm not certain about all this stuff. Again I'm from the 1984-1996 era, I'm going to make a few posts here and there, but I'm not going to be doing this thing 24/7/365. I'm just going to take the information I get and move on. Look I'll just give you a little info on my era. 1.Nobody just talked about 1 emcee, or 2 emcees. If that is all you talked about you were just straight wack son. 2.When people listened to Rakim, or Andre 3000, or Warren G etc. those fans of those guys nobody told everybody to go fuck themselves. They stated their opinion and respected others opinion. But those dudes didn't go around saying fuck everybody with all that nasty shit. 3.You heard the music when you left your house. You heard it in the streets. You heard songs for years, but you didn't know what it was because the only way you could get access to it was by buying a cd or tape, or borrowing from a friend. You didn't click on a link on the internet. Some music you heard was very tough to find, and very tough to here replay of it. 4.You heard more music on a street corner in NYC, then you today anywhere. I don't see or hear much rap when I leave my house. When I hear a rapper 80% of the time its either Jayz or Eminem. Back in the original era 90% of the time you heard rap when you left your house it was a different artist and most of the time you didn't even know who it was rapping. So what I'm getting from it is this. Eminem's music yes it is hip hop yes it is rap. But his philosophy on music through what I'm getting from Em fan's is heavy metal or rock or pop. And I'm telling you these dudes, the legends or whatever the real original emcees. That shit wasn't heavy metal in any way homie. That shit was the real hip hop.

    • DRO'dUp

      HAHAHA how sensitive can niggas be these days. Its sad, but maybe my opinion stings cause its true otherwise yall wouldnt had replied. My moms weak? Is that why you were raised by two gay dads? Dont get roasted on nigga thats not healthy for your dignity. This is an opinion and if you cant deal wit it then u should kill yourself son.

    • Reality1111

      See these are the comments I'm not understanding here. One dude said recovery was weak. Other dude rips that dude. But the first dude was just stating his opinion. It seems like the 2nd dude is the one hating. So that's what I think about it.

    • DrugstoreCowboy

      ur moms weak bitch

    • BWS-Fish

      you're weak

  • noivad12

    aint nothin weak about recovery at all if u think so take ur opinion and keep it good for you..the majority of em heads enjoy recovery and if you dont yo fault that shit is stupid hard from cold winds blow to the end of the cd he spittin raw all the songs got meaning and good concepts accept for wont back down hes just lyrically and metaphorically eatin that song wit rapping on fire is the only track on that whole album thats weak RECOVERY is overall no doubt a damn good em album only thing wrong wit relapse is not enough songs wit good concepts and too much the same psycho serial killer shit songs nuthn else mixed up wit it accept a couple of tracks em a legend

  • Cuzzin Pete

    actually to be honest i don't think this album went Platinum (just in the US alone). It's more like Interscope Records brought about somewhere between 300K-400K of this album. Recovery was pretty corny, it was dry, monotonous, obvious, and a buncha' overhyping screaming. I liked Eminem i guess, he still is a beast no doubt about that but he's Lukewarm. The whole "relapse" phase really did run the masses in the ground, he came out with a weak album filled with hot beats and got publicly humiliated by a queer and tried to brush it off as a joke (who jokes like that really). Eminem fell off, the only thing that can keep Aftermath (as a company alive) is Dr. Dre and that's that. Slim Mobb is cool but he's no Snoop, Bishop was hot but he got dropped, and 50 is about to do his own thing but even his music marketing abilities are vanishing (drying up and getting bland). So in the end, of course this album was gonna go Platinum, that's what major labels do with big stars (with the exception of a few but even still Execs buy a couple hundred thousand just for a "safety net" so to say). Ever since Recovery came out I've yet to hear the album being played in the streets, i mean i know i'm not in everybody's car or computer room but I ain't heard shit.

    • Cuzzin Pete

      actually my "unfounded fiction" is actually "behind the scenes non-fiction". Labels and Artist actually do do that, it helps with image. you're bullshitting yourself if u still think people are going out there every week to buy that Black Eyed Peas album. like i said b4, i like Emin3m but he just ain't that refreshing MC we're used to all hearing. he's still good but he's bland now. he should be inspiring muthafuckaz to go out and gang up on people with their friends and throw gasoline on people and set em on fire in the middle of the street in broad day light like those kids in Florida did. and last like i said b4, labels do buy albums, it's a common practice and it has been for some time now, whether u take MY word on it or not i do not care but do some backround investigating and you'll c.

    • Reality1111

      Here I think the first dude is just stating his opinion. I don't think they are hating Em. They say they like Em. Seems like the 2nd and 3rd dudes are hating, and I just don't understand why the first person's opinion should be criticized. They are just stating their opinion.

    • ITSJERBOY

      it's "perhaps I ran them accents in the ground", not "masses into the ground". and you sound like youre talking out of your asshole.

    • junkie

      ayo idiot can you please get some facts before you start mouthin off? how could u possibly have any proof interscope bought 300k? thats just plain unfounded fiction.. why u gotta be like that? u dont like recovery/eminem thats cool but dont be talking pure shit.

  • CUPFULL

    And this Platinum shit got yall throwin yalls wet panties at Em huh? Sells aint shit son. Nas aint selling platinum and his the best mc out imo.

  • Son of Chico Dusty

    Recovery is a really good album i've bought it and listened to it probably about fifteen times now but the best rap album this year so far is Sir Lucious Leftfoot i can't wait to buy it

  • T.I. IS BACK!!!!!!

    i wasnt talking about eminem i was talkin about little wayne cuz little wayne is pure trash and he thinks he is the best rapper alive.....in my opinion lyrically em is the best alive

  • Alicia

    It doesn't matter if em is influenced by smb or if smb is influenced by em. Eminem is spittin like crazy the punchlines are uncountable his flow is sick and guys this dude is really TALENTED! He isn't at the top because all the others are garbage he is at the top cause he deserves it! And have in mind that the records he sold are a few because of downloading.

  • Em fan #1

    This doesn't surprise me given Eminem is the only good rapper right now

    • JasonCTown

      I could see, if Em is ALL you listen to, him being the best. That's about it.

    • C-Arson

      em fan #1 your a joke.

    • junkie

      nigga WHAT? i love em but u crazy.. i could rattle of a list right now of MC's droppin crazy albums to match em, slaughterhouse, nas, mos def, talib kweli, immortal technique, diabolic etc stop dick ridin, he is great but not alone

    • Em fan #1

      What do you mean SMH? There ain't a single rapper rapping about the real shit Eminem raps about. Even when he's on the slim shady stuff its better then 100% of everything. Face it, Em>every other rapper

    Ok so I've been on this now for 2 1/2 hours will take a break be back around 8PM. This is what I've gotten so far from Eminem fans. 1.Go fuck yourself. 2.Asher Roth. 3.JCole and Yealwolf. So this is what I'm going to do. I'll pass on 1 & 2, and try 3. 3 seems like good advice. Hope to get more from Eminem fans later.

      Loserboy but how are you any different? That is the point. If I'm wasting my time, so are you. And you're wasting your time, telling me I'm wasting my time. Doesn't make sense in my opinion.

    • LoserBoy

      You're wasting your time is what you're doing.

  • I Keeps It Real

    There's like only 2 or 3 people in here who even care about this.

    • Yep Yep

      I don't care if people like Eminem dude. That's their preference. He's like U2 or Rollingstones at this point, he's an institution just like Dr. Dre of course he went platinum. DUH! Me personally, I think Recovery is a little stiff and no where near what his flow use to be. I will say it's his most honest album and that's refreshing. But production wise, lyrical content and flow, come on son be real, this is just OK.

    • Reality1111

      Then Eminem must be garbage if only 2 or 3 people in here care about this. Not saying this myself. Just going by what other readers are telling me.

  • Reality1111

    Aftermath/Shady and there aint nuthin after that There is supposed to be something after that. Otherwise Aftermath/Shady wasn't anything to begin with.

    • Reality1111

      That comment makes no sense. I'm not talking I'm typing so how can I shut the fuck up. What are you telling other people what to do for? Shouldn't those people be shutting the fuck up?

    Alright there keyboard warrior, your just talking out of your ass now. We went from every fan needs to be a rapper to fans don't matter because record executives control everything. Brilliant! Anyway, have fun annoying people on blogs bc you seem to be good at that lol. And the main thing here is that em is still killing shit so props to him. If we get a few more albums like Recovery this year than hip hops in good shape. Peace

  • Reality1111

    90% of new rappers. I'm trying to find out who these rappers are. I don't see these people on TV. All I see is Drake, Em, JayZ, Kanye, TI, Ross. That's all I'm really seeing. So Em is the best rapper alive because nobody has been able to stand up to him. What about the rappers before Em? Em was a product of their influence. Right. So shouldn't there be rappers who have to stood up to him. Em's the best, so he should have lots of people following in his footsteps and standing up to him , that's the point.

    • Reality1111

      So what's the difference between and emcee and an artist?

    • nickdean14

      reality what you gotta realise is those guys you mentioned are mc's these guys are now artists will these guys have more number ones between em hell yea! it depends which way you look at it!

    • Reality1111

      hip hop is more diverse now than ever!!!!!!!! I'm not sure everyone agrees with that.

    • nickdean14

      reality your comment is mad!!!!!!!!!!!! hip hop is more diverse now than ever!!!!!!!! its not turning into these guys little group at all! if it makes you happy to find someone none affiliated and as good as these 5 and 10 names check out XV as good as any of the new guys and non affiliated and unique, i think hip hop has far more branches now than it ever has!

    • Reality1111

      b.o.b, drake, wale, asher roth, big sean, j cole, cudi besides big sean they are all pretty big names ok well roth sucks, but the other guys are ok, I respect roth effort, but music wise crap. So are b.o.b, drake, wale, asher roth, big sean, j cole, cudi as big as Das Efx, Group Home, Keith Murray, Too Short, Black Moon? I don't think they are even close, and those weren't even the biggest names of the era. Does that make sense.

    • Reality1111

      I agree. I do respect that. and I'm trying to find out where hip hip is evolving next. Because I'm not seeing anything. I just see and hear the same 5 or 10 names over and over again. Hip hop is evloving into Drakes little group, Wayne's little group, Em's little group or big group whatever you want to call it. Jay'Z little group, and TI or Rick Ross little group. That seems to be what hip hop is evolving into. Just a select few people for a select few fans.

    • nickdean14

      k you are starting to make sense! i think what em proved is you just need to be yourself! i think this is the biggest influence he has had, made people realise that they can be completely different to everyone else but still stand out if they have tallent, new rappers who are they??? you really want a list... b.o.b, drake, wale, asher roth, big sean, j cole, cudi besides big sean they are all pretty big names! k i get what your saying that if hes the best someone should want to dethrone him but maybe he is just that good that its not possible at the moment, yea someone will come along eventualy and maybe be as good if not better but to find a top 10 ever rapper takes time! dont ya think?

    • tha620hawk

      I know he killed Jay on Renegades, and he stole the show on Forever. Em goes hard every album. He makes what he wants. When he wants. You've got to respect that. In my oppinion he is the best rapper alive. Hands down. Hip hop evolves just like everything else. So no one is taking anything away from the past.

  • nickdean14

    reality1111 who has em influenced i bet 90% of new rappers would say that em has been an influence on them! your sayin he hasnt created someone better than him... no but since em who has stood up to become better than him??? no one not cause he isnt influencing people just that no one is good enough!!! bet you that all the freshman 10 where influenced by him! he is the best rapper alive and thats why he hasnt created anyone better than him!

  • George21

    Reality, buddy....if you look at my previous post you will see that I indeed say "artists". But even if I didn't who cares. If your going to just nitpick at my spelling and grammar than I guess this conversation is over. The bottom line is the fans help make any artist who they are. So yes, buying albums and supporting them is a great way to support hip hop music. Being a rapper yourself is a fun idea, but honestly thats unrealistic to think every fan needs to try and become a rapper. Just support real music thats the point here, whether it be by just listening to it like most ppl or actually trying to make your own music. And i just realized how hilarious your attempt at being a wiseass was...because I did write "artists"...yes plural lol.

    • Reality1111

      The bottom line is the fans help make any artist who they are. Are you sure its not the record executives?

  • Reality1111

    I know its about sales. And Eminem is on top. So i'm trying to talk with Eminem fans here. That should relate enough to the article.

    • Reality1111

      My point is this. If Em is the best, as many of you say. The game would be improving. There would be rappers as good as Em making a name for themsleves. I just don't see that happening. That isn't my whole point. I'm trying to find out more about Eminem fans and their view on hip hop.

    • swiper

      ok just tell me what your point is dont say im asking you just say whats your point

  • swiper

    all i want to know is WHO THE FUCK IS REALITY1111? i mean your not making sense whats so ever nobody talked about those artist read the article its about SALES not whos the best of all time oh whos your favorite rapper ignorant muthafucker here seriously

      read the article jackass look if it was an article of who's the best of all time then i get you or what to do for hiphop but look at this article its about sales

  • css1323

    Em put out a solid album. Hope he doesn't stop here, would love to enjoy another album in 2011 while he's on a roll.

  • Reality1111

    The best way to support the music you like imo is to actually go out and buy the albums of your favorite artists. So artist(s) is plural. Its not artist. OK I get that. So if everybody does what they are supposed to do, which is support the music by going out and buying the albums. Who is actually going to create the albums? Wouldn't creating the albums be the best way to support the music you like and cite your influences?

    • Reality1111

      "Let the real artists come forth on their own." That's not what is happening though. No real artist makes it own their own. They need help from the industry.

    • css1323

      Go out and create? Not like you can create talent overnight. But I do see what you're saying. However, for the record, look at Soulja Boy.. he probably thought he could contribute to hip hop and look how ugly that turned out. Let the real artists come forth on their own.

  • George21

    Reality I'm trying to have a civilized discussion with you, however, you refuse to make your point clear enough for me to respond. I would just like to point out the majority of hip hop fans don't actually become rappers. The best way to support the music you like imo is to actually go out and buy the albums of your favorite artists.

    • tha620hawk

      That's completely false. If people didn't buy the albums then it would make it easier to sift through the bullshit. They aren't rappers. They're artists. Most impersonate an artist, but that's what they all fall under. If you stop buying albums then the real artist would still keep on making good music because they just enjoy people listening to their art. You just wouldn't have garbage like wayne, drake, and soulja boy running around. You'd be left with Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Common. I'd rather listen to emcee's that spit from the heart and soul before I listen to one that spits for fame and fortune. True Story

  • nixnox

    Congrats to EM...not only did he release a CD the surpassed my expectations, I am just glad to have him back...dudes flow is something to marvel at...

  • c/gaddic

    The best rapper alive and the best rapper ever isn't Eminem That title belongs to Rakim the true god mc and the originator of rap lyricism No one can take that title Every rapper imitated or copied the "god's' style thus he is hand down the creator of hip-hop as we know and love! Eminem is at least top ten in a true greatest rappers of all time list Way ahead of the lil waynes kanyes and young jeezys/TI's Nas and jay-z are the only other true greatest rappers left in the game besides Em Hate or love it Eminem will never overtake these rappers' reputation or impact Illmatic is better than any album Eminem creates or will ever create And Yes! I'm a huge Eminem fan recovery bitches!

    • PDizzle83

      Buddy you are smoking some good ass shit if you think Rakim is a better rapper than shady! And you wrong about Jay-z and Nas also... Illmatic doesnt touch Eminem Show ,MMLP or Recovery. Back in the 90's when Illmatic came out it was the shit, it was the best of that era.... But now Shady has the best shit out by far cause its new era, new era calls for new styles and new music and thats what makes eminem best rapper alive and when he dead he'll be considered best of all time!

  • bballa69

  • George21

    Well if your asking what im doing I actually go out and buy albums not just eminems. I own over 200 actual cds of since i started listening to rap in the 90s. But im a little confused as to why you are so excited.

    • Reality1111

      Excited? Who said I was excited? I'm trying to find out information here from Em fans. That's great you bought 200 cd's and started listening to rap in the 90's. That's great. You're an Em fan right? He's the best right? So how are your raps? Are you getting record deals? Am I going to see you on TV next?

  • George21

    What exactly is reality1111 talking about? Anyway, this is a good look for em...best mainstream hip hop album in a while so props to him.

    • Reality1111

      What am I talking about? I'm asking YOU!! I'm asking you what YOU are talking about. We know Em is great. We know how much of a fan you are of Em. I'm asking you what else are you doing for hip hop besides being a bigger and better Eminem fan? If you don't know what I'm talking about, I'm not too sure that you know what you're talking about.

Ice T fans became artists and got record deals. NWA fans became artists and got record deals. Eminem fans(fill in space here) I want to know. What fills in the space? Is it got to Walmart 2 hours early? Is it put up more posters? Is it got more concert tickets? Is it I played Eminem loud in my car when someone was next to me? We want to know.

    • T.I. IS BACK!!!!!!

      @reality111 he said eminem was a 'lyrical role model to him' enough said dude

    • Reality1111

      Royce and BOB I've heard of. JCole Yealwolf I'll try that thanks. Roth that doesn't seem to be a good look if that is what is coming after Em, then things aren't going as planned.

    • Rapfan

      B.O.B, J cole, Asher Roth, Royce da 59, Yealwolf and even the game himself have said em has inspired him. Thats just a handful off the top so do your research and its never just 1 artist that inspires its always a variety.

      Real hip hop originated in the Bronx in the mid 1970's. The Civil Rights Movement didn't create hip hop.

    • tha620hawk

      I don't know Reality?!?! Maybe it's because it was shortly after the Civil Right Movement!!!!! Did you ever consider that maybe, just maybe, african americans couldn't just come out and say what they wanted before the 1970's?!?!? Are you seriously this stupid?! Make a fist, and fuck your face with it for being such a moron. Just sayin, not a big deal

    • Reality1111

      who gives a shit? I'm sure he inspired someone somewhere. Who. I'm trying to find out. And what did they do with the inspiration. "They were destined to be emcee's from the beginning. Not because of the people before them." Then where are the emcees from the 1800's? none of them were destined? So basicallly you have to alive after mid 1970's to be a destined emcee. Because there are none before the 1970's.

      I'd definitely say whomever is comin' out this decade is gonna recognize Em. No doubt. Look at B.o.B's interview, I'd say he has a good chance of fillin' in your empty little space, he's a fan: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yF_9twHP2V8

    • tha620hawk

      who gives a shit? I'm sure he inspired someone somewhere. If you don't think that he hasn't inspired someone then you're probably remedial anyways. In all honesty "WHO GIVES A SHIT"? I'm an Eminem fan and i'm here in Afghanistan right now. You can kiss my ass dick face. My life isn't going to be altered because of an artist. I'm going to do what i'm doing. Just like all the others who were inspired by the list of artists you mentioned before. They were destined to be emcee's from the beginning. Not because of the people before them.

    Ok Eminem fans here is your chance. I want to hear from the real Em fans. First off, I don't hate Em. This is not a hate Em thread. I like Em. Congrats on the success, Congrats on the big numbers. They are great. It is important. It might not be the most important to some people but it does make a statement. Em is doing his thing. He's making a statement. He is relevant. We like him. Congratulations. Now on to the real talk. What are any of you Eminem fans doing to support hip hop? Getting to Walmart 2 hours early? Buying 10 Recovery albums, instead of 4 Relapse albums. Putting up 12 posters instead of 6. You used to sit in the back row at an Em concert, now you are in the 7th row and one of your boys knows one of his agents' boys. Is that what you are doing? Being a better and bigger Eminem fan. We get that. We know your loyalty. We just want to know what else are you doing for hip hop? How many Em fans are becoming rappers and getting record deals? Who is becoming almost as big if not bigger than Eminem, using him as an influence to get where they are at today. How many artists are Em taking under his wing, who previously were not heard of before Em got into his prime. 50 Cent doesn't count. We want real talk here. How many Em fans are getting exposure and getting on TV to promote their brand of hip hop? Lets hear it from the real Em fans.

    • Reality1111

      Don't worry about it. You don't have to probe to see what the boss is doing.

    • css1323

      Interesting post, but it looks like you're making something out of nothing. I support music in general, man. The numbers speak for themselves. No one's obligated to share your idea of supporting hip hop. Whichever way that is, what exactly are you doing yourself? Give us your idea instead of being a prick about it. "Putting up 12 posters instead of 6." smfh

    • Reality1111

      I get that. I already know that. I'm asking you what else are you doing? Is that it? Just being a big fan of Eminem. There has to be more.

    • T.I. IS BACK!!!!!!

      we are supporting hiphop by supporting the biggest individual in hiphop right now which is eminem pretty simple

  • hatered

    drizzy drake still moving over 100k a week that whats up gangster music is over and dead

    • DrugstoreCowboy

      For real, he's not their yet, TI's Back is fuckin trippin,

    • T.I. IS BACK!!!!!!

      whoa whoa whoa @sutterkane drake doesnt belong in the same sentence as mase dmx nelly or 50 cent come on now thats just a ridiculous comparison

    • SutterKane

      @ Hatred lol, I wouldnt go that far, actually, I expected Drake to be doing the kind of numbers Em is with all the hype. Drake will creep its way to platiunum eventually, but I expect labels will be looking for a diffrent kind of artist since Drake didnt do half as well as expected.......Just like right as Ma$e was going out of style, DMX showed up, then when DMX was going outta style, Nelly showed up, then as nelly was going out of style, 50 Cent showed up, then as 50 was going outta style, Drake showed up..... Since this didnt live up to the hype I give i a year before another hardcore rapper shows up on a major and switches the direction of rap again.......It always goes in cycles

    • Terrence13

      lol yea 50 cent and jeezy are like the only commercial gangsta rappers but this is just a fad gangsta rap will be back 2-4 years from now cause music right now sucks too much bubble gum bullshit i miss when rap had gangsta rap and lyricists and positve raps like common lauryn hill q-tip etc. 1984-2006 great hiphop years 2007-present 2010 hiphop sucks only a handful of artists holdin it down

    EMINEM TAKIN OVER BEST RAPPER ALIVE RECOVERY

    • Reality1111

      That's good. I'm glad you think Em is the best alive. I'm trying to figure out where you're going with that. That's all.

    • T.I. IS BACK!!!!!!

      @reality1111 i wasnt talking about eminem i was talkin about little wayne cuz little wayne is pure trash and he thinks he is the best rapper alive...in my opinion lyrically em is the best alive

    • Reality1111

      Hold up. Wait a second. I never said I thought Em was the best rapper alive. I'm saying I know you think Em is the best rapper alive. Is Em pure trash or not pure trash? Are Em's fans pure trash or not pure trash? I want to hear from the real Em fans. I'm not getting brainwashed at all. I already know what I think. I'm asking you what you think.

    • T.I. IS BACK!!!!!!

      @reality1111 its people like you who let some metaphorist who claims to be the best rapper alive brain wash you into believe he actually is when in reality hes pure trash he wouldnt know a rap if it was written for him

    • Reality1111

      Yes we know you think Em is the best rapper alive. We know he's takin over people like you, who are big Em fans. We know that. Is Eminem the only rapper you listen to? Is that what takin over means? 1 guy at the top, everybody else no where to be found? Is that what hip hop is?
