Took Jay-z 3 albums to sell 5 million one time

Eminem drops one album with just that wack a.ss my name is singles catered to little confused, spoiled, and bored white kids in suburbia and goes 5 millions easily.

n*ggaz need to understand the buisness side of music.

80% of hiphop consumers(people who buy records) are white or have v*ginas

if you got an artist that caters to that demographic on the hiphop side and also crosses over to other genre demographics and music markets because of an obvious physical trait obviously it's going outsell anything and everything that only caters to that demographic for one project or one song or doesn't at all.

Eminem is talented and one of the greatest rappers to touch the mic but let's be real he's a product that will sell because of how his image is. And his skin color has alot to do with that image.

Yeah and black men in their 30's are doing the same thing. Black rappers have to work 20 times harder than this white boy will ever have to.

OK i ask u............. IS there any album that eminem could put out and it wont go platinum?
i mean if eminem put out a country album, will white kids not buy it?
He could put out chicken scratch napkins these days and it would go platinum...


But thats cuz hes a superstar... Him being white has much to do with it thats why agreed with the previous post... But he spits wack a.ss sh*t blah blah blah he only sold cuz hes white attitude is stupid.... Shows that your close minded.

Why didnt vanilla ice blow the fu*k up... Or what about the other 30 or so dope white rappers that cant make it big...


Eminems talent/controversy/timing/producer/skin color were all aspects of why he sold...

CONTENT... Eminem wasnt tanned for those months common

Thats the thing they think everything he puts out sells the same no matter what but clearly Encore and Relapse break that mould. They both sold well but Encore sold half of what his previous 2 albums sold and Relapse sold less than half of what his next album would go onto sell

^^ Eminem had already solidified his name in the game by that point... Both albums were HIGHLY anticipated

If he droped encore in 1999

everything would be different...

ems greatest hits are classic most rappers arnt... And pacs greatest hits sold a sh*t ton so did dmx's and so on...

If you never owned the first three albums or were to young at the time you copped the greatest hits. That goes for any dope artist...

Whatever dog 50cent went from going diamond to gold

Jay-z went 5 million once and consistantly sells 1.5-2 million records on albums that are highly anticipated. sh*t his the black album only sold 3 million and that was well praised and he was supposed to bow out after that


I'm sorry brah only eminem can drop duds and sell 4 million records like nothing, in declining music market at that.

Not hating but I see what's going on and other people do too, so don't get defensive when people point sh*t out. If eminem was really making the best music for the past 12 years I would give him a past but he aint have an hot album in 7 years before he droped recovery and between that time frame he still outsold n*ggaz like Kanye West and sh*t who was at the prime of his career. Who might I add also apeals to the same demographic as em
I hear you homie... Im taking aim at people who cant back up there own opinions...

You can and you make sence I agree that he drop duds and sell like no one... But to souly say cause hes white is wrong.

eminem is extremely popular because he's good at doing a black thing just like tiger woods is for being good at a white thing. if their skin colors were reversed neither would be nearly as popular

LMAO @ this

Domesticaly Relapse sold like 3 million Encore sold like 4 million his greatest hits sold like 4 million

You acting like any other rapper could pull that off regularly
They are good numbers but they disprove the theory he can put anything out and do really great numbers everytime, obviously his fans care about content more than people are willing to let on

How does Kanyes music appeal to the same people as Eminems? they are chalk and cheese, make totally different music and would definitely appeal to different fanbases

Eminem wasnt releasing albums in the 7 years you are referring to

i knew girls when i was in grade school that didn't listen to rap at all but bought eminem cds. he did/does have a female fan base which is odd with the kind of music he does. im not saying eminem is not good. people just saying that his fan base isn't exactly the normal rapper fan base
