Em dropped his surprise Kamikaze album just over two weeks ago, and while we are still waiting for the Rap God to deliver his response to MGK calling him out in a diss track, the album’s first week numbers prove Eminem still has it.

Released without any promotion the latest project moved a total of 252,000 traditional copies for a total of 434,000 equivalent units. With a few features assisting the 13-track album, diss track “Not Alike” might have had a huge part to play in the album’s success.

As many fans are citing that Kamikaze’s is a better offering over Em’s last album Revival, the 45-year-old rapper has earned his ninth number one project on top of the Billboard 200.
