Even after an extended hiatus from putting together albums Slim Shady still has selling power.
According to Billboard, “The Marshall Mathers LP 2” has already gone gold selling 792,000 units in its first week of release. The only 2 Hip Hop albums to move more units thus far this year are Drake’s “Nothing Was The same” (Certified 1x Platinum) & Jay-z‘s “Magna Carter Holy Grail” (Certified 2x Platinum)
In addition, Eminem’s previous solo releases sold a combined 38,000 units during the same week.
It seems like Mr Mather’s fans are as loyal as ever
