Long after his Slim Shady debut, the rap God, Eminem is continuing to set new records and reach new career milestones.
According to Billboard, this week, the rapper’s seventh full-length ‘Recovery’ album is back on the Billboard 200 abums chart, coming in at No. 160, although it first dropped seven years ago. This new entry on the chart sets a record for Em, making him the first musician ever to have three of his albums spend at least 300 weeks on the chart.
Em’s past efforts, The Eminem Show, released in 2002, has spent 342 weeks on the chart, Curtain Call: The Hits has spent 363 weeks since its 2005 release, and now, Recovery hits 300 weeks since it dropped in 2010.
All three albums went to number one, at least for a week, when they were released, with The Eminem Show receiving the coveted Diamond status for selling more than 10 million copies.
It’s been rumored that Em’s next album is due November 17th and the rapper just revealed a new ‘Stan’ merchandise line.
