Detroit, MI – Eminem was apparently feeling a bit nostalgic over the weekend. The celebrated MC hopped on Twitter to reminisce about 2013’s Marshall Mathers LP 2, which crossed the five-year milestone on on Monday (November 5).
“It’s been 5 whole years since myself, @RickRubin and @drdre created this ‘Monster’! #MMLP2,” he wrote.

The Marshall Mathers LP 2 served as Em’s eighth studio album and was intended to act as the sequel to the 2000 original. Featuring Skylar Grey, Rihanna, Nate Ruess and then-lesser known Kendrick Lamar, the project debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and marked the second-best selling album sales of 2013.
It also took home the honor for Best Rap Album at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards.
Em’s tenth and most recent album, Kamikaze, also debuted at No. 1 upon its release and reeled in over 434,000 total album equivalent units in its first week.
In February, the RIAA named Slim Shady its second-most successful singles artist of all time.
