Eminem's album The Marshall Mathers LP turned 21 on Sunday, 23 May. The album was released back in the year 2000.
The hip hop project consisted of dope tracks such as The Real Slim Shady, Stan, The Way I Am and I'm Back. Hip Hop By The Numbers took to Twitter on Sunday to share that the album sold a whopping 1.78 million copies on its first week of release.
The project remains the highest selling hip hop album in a week, according to Hip Hop By The Numbers.
Hip hop followers took to the comments section to share their thoughts on the album. Check out some of their opinions below:
"I honestly think it’s unbeatable. Em had the absolute perfect storm with Dr Dre being a huge name and creating massive amounts of hype with his first albums and then singles like The Real Slim Shady. Even if someone had that kind of buzz nowadays, the music industry has changed."
"Drake maybe. He’s the only one who could ever come close to it."
"Kendrick’s return album if marketed correctly would have a shot."
"For there to be anyone that could get near that record, they’d have to bring something so different that’s never been seen before with the best energy possible to pull it off. Drake's the biggest right now when it comes to numbers in hip hop and he’s not even touching that level."
"No chance, cause the majority of people stream music now instead of buying."
In other entertainment news, Briefly News reported that Drake sent his fans into a frenzy when he walked on stage with his son Adonis. The superstar won the Artist of the Decade award from the Billboard Music Awards and took Adonis with him to the stage.
In video doing the rounds on Twitter, Drake's fans can be seen taking videos of the heartwarming moment while others clapped their hands.
The talented and popular rapper even let his bundle of joy hold the trophy for him when they were still on the podium. At the time of publication, the video of the adorable moment had been viewed over 481 000 times.
Most of Drake's fans agreed that Adonis looks like Drake's mom. Check out some of their comments below:
"Drake bringing his son is so adorable."
"Baby came out looking exactly like his mom. I know he loves that."
