Eminem Wins "Global Icon" Award At 2013 MTV EMA Music Awards

Eminem also wins in the Hip Hop category at the 2013 MTV EMA Music Awards.

Eminem won the “Global Icon” award for his lifetime achievement at the 2013 MTV EMA Music Awards today (November 10), according to heavy.com. The Detroit rapper was also crowned the winner of Hip Hop category. His victories at the twentieth-annual European awards ceremony come one week after being named artist of the year at the inaugural YouTube Music Awards.

Last week, Eminem also released The Marshall Mathers LP 2, landed his first #1 song on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop songs chart and placed four songs in the Top 20 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart as a lead artist.

The latter feat hasn’t been accomplished since The Beatles did it in 1964. In April of that year, the British quartet had six songs in the Top 20 for two consecutive weeks.

Other winners at the 2013 MTV EMA Music Awards, which took place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, included Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, who won in the New category. Beyonce and Bruno Mars won awards for best live act and best song, respectively.

      So what if tupac wouldn't be friends with Em no one gives a shit, but don't sit there going at him if they didn't even know eachother you're just butthurt

    • 2pacForever

      The fact that you think eminem is better than tupac shows how naive you are. Pac wouldnt have been friends with eminem dumbass, TUPAC HATED DR DRE, TUPAC CALLED OUT DRE ON BEING GAY(YES, DRE HAD A BOYFRIEND NAMED BRUCE IN THE DEATHROW DAYS) AND THATS WHY DRE LEFT HIS OWN RECORD LABEL BECAUSE HE WAS INTIMIDATED BY TUPAC... Tupac would have a field day dissing eminem.... Eminem is a clown rapper, lol i bet he loved that ass in his face at that award show lol eminem and dre probably gay togeathr

    "no one in the real world knows who j cole is" That's a very good thing.

    "He does more in a few months than other artists do in a year" That's what he wants you to believe. In reality, he's lazy and unmotivated... So says Time Magazine.

  • well deserved

    Y'all where expecting someone else to win? Nigga please. Em accomplished a lot and y'all know that. Y'all just blinded with hatred for the nigga/wigger..lol. The only thing jay got ahead of Em is more albums. What about sales? (And don't bring no white boy BS, tupac is black and sold nearly as much as Em did with barely 6-7 albums). 14 Grammies All time highest EMA winner Oscar All time highest VMA (for rappers) Billboard awards Artist of the decade Mehn...the accolades are too much. Well Deserved. #STANDING OVATION

    • 2pacForever

      99% of eminems fanbase are little stupid kids like you. Eminem is in the same category as lady gaga, lil wanye, and justin bieber.. All a bunch of gay ass trends. If pac hadnt died there would be no eminem because tupac would have smashed his ass. Pac hated dre andd hed definately hate this white boy

    Artist of the year??? Is this a joke? Em was missing in action until about a month ago and other artist were all over for 75% of the year...BS I call it but it is a Youtube award so how legit can that be.

  • G.dot

    Great reply. First three releases and the d-12 albums he was awesome after that it was a downward spiral but he still offers just as much as any other rapper out there these days.

  • Daniel

    IMO I have never gotten the hype behind this guy. To me he has been overrated since he came out. He had a few songs that I actually could get behind but for the most part his catalogue is just miss to me. There is no way he should be winning awards for best rapper of the year. By no means am I hating on him because of his race but I do think he gets a pass because of it.

  • anonymous

    Whoever the fuck says hes overrated as an artist is a fuckin hater and doesnt know shit. em uses and has touched on every human emotion in his music. Hes made tons and tons of emotional popular hits and has 3 revolutionary classic albums under his belt. "men lie, women lie, numbers dont" - jay z. all them accolades dont just magically happen. where are all the other multi million global iconic selling white artists if the color is all he has as an advantage?.........yea..... none

      First post said "He's touched on all emotions" another Anon explains how he hasn't...The random Stan goes off because an obvious fact was pointed out LMAO

      It's criticizing not criticizung you're letting you're anger/love for Eminem get the better of you. Don't let them get you mad You're better than that you're Eminem's no1 fan !!

      ^@ this guy above me, You're criticizung him because he doesnt do what everyone else has done???? So your saying he should try to be like everyone else? He made his own version of love songs: KIM, LOVE YOU MORE, MOCKINGBIRD, HEADLIGHTS. .... stfu idiot.

    • Anonymous

      Really? Em has never mad a true love song like all of the other greats. His tone towards women is either they are an object or the are to be raped type crap. Pleeezzzeee with the "He's touch all sides of emotions crap"

      pitchfork is known for being very hit or miss with their reviews. bunch of hipsters. to be fair though the reviews for this album ive seen from much more respectable magazines/websites have been better. pitchfork was the worst review i saw

    • Drake Til Infinity

      That 75/100 is still lower than Nothing Was The Same and most Drake releases. Even with some hater giving NWTS 20/100. Overall critics think Drake's catalog is better. Only Eminem fans resort to you should form your own opinion arguments. OBVIOUSLY you should...but at the same time.... Ready To Die, 36 Chambers etc. were all critically acclaimed albums for a reason. Just because you are using critics scores to highlight that broadly an artist is overrated doesn't mean you rely on critics scores to dictate what you think is classic. The two things aren't mutual exclusive Eminem stans. Em is a superb technical rapper, but as an artist dude is hella OVERRATED.

      ^I depended on my own judgement and it was overall a rather underwhelming/disappointing album ...However that is mainly because i expected more from Em . Don't be so fucking condescending next time dim wit

    Jay-Z always raps about the same things in his life and doesn't add a new substance. I think Kanye is even higher than Jay-Z nowadays. I dunno why Jay-Z has become lazy, maybe because of his new life as a dad.

  • Yasiin Bey

    If talking icons, I think Jay Z is way more deserving...Being White definitely helps, if he was black he wouldn't be as sensationalized. FACT

      On what basis exactly? Influence? Sales? Rapping ability? Get the fuck out of here. Jay Z's lazy ass hasn't rapped his ass off since RD. Hell Kanye is more of an icon than Jay Z. Jay Z just happens to be the default black rapper many people know.
