Eminem’s Marshall Mathers LP 2 Sells 790k+ 1st Week + All 8 Of His Albums Enter The Billboard Top 200


(AllHipHop News) For about 10 years, in terms of commercial success in Hip Hop, the rankings have been Eminem #1…and then everyone else. That continued this past week when Eminem’s eighth studio album in 14 years, The Marshall Mathers LP 2 scored the highest 1st week sales for a rapper with 792,000.

While not even half of the ridiculous 1.71 million 1st week sales its predecessor, The Marshall Mathers LP scored, Eminem’s 8th studio album has set off a string off record-breaking for the 41 year old MC. In addition to his new album being #1 on the Billboard Top 200, everyone of his eight solo studio albums has also entered the Billboard 200 simultaneously, a first for a rapper.

#1 The Marshall Mathers LP 2 – 793,000
#30 The Marshall Mathers LP – 10,000 (Total 10,766,000)
#58 The Eminem Show – 7,000 (Total 10,270,000)
#64 Recovery – 7,000 (Total 4,509,000)
#94 Curtain Call – 5,000 (Total 3,778,000)
#115 The Slim Shady LP – 4,000 (Total 5,433,000)
#158 Encore – 3,000 (Total 5,343,000)
#159 Relapse – 3,000 (Total 2,335,000)

Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2 also became his seventh straight #1 album in the U.K., making him the first American artist ever to achieve such a feat.

    Jay sold a mil before his album even came out. Not impressed at all. Try harder em.

    • Jayson C Williams

      A company bought his records! Fans bought em shit. Jay-z barely outsold dmx in their height in fact he didn’t. Facts! Also jigga never had 8 albums on the top 200.. u can’t compare him in sales to em or PAC!

    • Raheem Classick

      Be careful when compairing anything Jay dose to any other Rapper because Jay get major hate on these sites.

    The Great White Support… no hate… it is what it is

    • therealest1

      Yes, he does definitely have the support of white folks buying his album, but he also has the support of nonwhites with sales because he is transcendent and accepted like that.

      But he’s also winning because of the backing of The Machine.

    • Raheem Classick

      Speak on it brother”

    • Peter Morris

      That plus he’s better than everyone else.

    • RichFromBX

  • NEWSKULL

    hmm….BRRAVO!… BRRRAVO!…

  • Jonathan Bacher

    imagine the crowd he’d had reached if the album was dope !!

    • Keith N.

      Would be the same crowd because…the album is (DOPE)..it’s his highest selling 1st week in almost 10 years.

  • urmom

  • RichFromBX

    keeping honest, the album is trash…I couldn’t find one track on there to listen to start to finish.

    • PorchBoySlim

      Naw I think he pulled a Nas move with this album..the beats and hook aint hot BUT Lyrically bar for bar its dope

  • Georgios Renieris

    Awesome album I been listening to it for the past week almost non stop. With him J Cole and Pusha T i gotta say it’s been a pretty good year for hip hop.

  • TimeWillTellu1

    The man sells records like him or not. If I were him I would hang it up and leave on top. His music is somewhat timeless…

  • the only white guy that don’t age

  • TruthSerum

    So much for all those hipster “Tastemaker” reviewers that kept pointing out in their reviews how he isnt relevant anymore. In all truth I still dont know what to make of the album but seeing Em succeed makes me smile knowing how crazy it must drive the people who work on blogs like Pitchfork

  • Weedras

    i give him props for the usual numbers.. but wasn’t impressed by the album, i dunno i listened to it juxtaposed with MMLP and the Em. Show and there was a level of monotony that was striking… he has bars we know that but dude is the only rapper i see that ppl never complain about him not switching his shit up but his work have a level of monotony to it..
