Two of the greatest to ever do it are TIED for a huge accomplishment!
Eminem has now caught up to Jay-Z, to tie for the spot of third most Billboard Hot 100 top 10 RAP hits ever. Thats a definitely a mouthful! Logic’s new single off of his album Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind, features Em and entered the Billboard chart at No. 5 this week. That’s what bumped the Eminem’s number of top 10 hits to a total of 21; of course now making him tied with Jay.
Which rappers have the number 1 and 2 spots you ask? Lil Wayne comes in at a pretty close second, with 24 and the number one spot is none other than Drizzy himself with a whopping 33! Crazy enough, just a little over a year ago Drake was behind Jay. That is until he dropped his album Scorpion. Two tracks off the album, “Diplomatic Immunity” and “God’s Plan” both debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and brought his total to 22.
We should also probably note that today is also a big day for TWO reason for Eminem. Besides getting his accolades up, today is the ten year anniversary of his 2009 album, Relapse. The album features the singles “Crack a Bottle”, “We Made You”, “3 a.m.”, and “Beautiful”. It has sold over 3 million copies in the U.S. and is certified double platinum!
