    Eminem did it again. After being on hiatus for over 4 years – he definitely has this industry on lock. Relapse entered the Soundscan charts at No.1 selling 608,244. From my understanding the last hip hop artists to sell as many records was Kanye West. In Canada, Eminem sold 63,826 positioning at No.1. Again, I haven’t seen numbers like this in a long time – especially in Canada for any hip hop artists. Congratulations!!!!!!

    Other artists in the U.S. Market – entering at No. 4 Method Man & Redman Blackout 2 selling 63,165, No.6 – Busta Rhymes Back On My B.S. sold 59,079 and DJ Drama Gangsta Grillz – The Album Vol. 2 entered the No.26 position selling 17,703.

    In the Canadian market – Method Man & Redman Blackout 2 debut at No.10 selling 3,181 and Busta Rhymes Back On My B.S. debuts at No.19 selling 2,154.

    The music industry is capable of selling over 250,000 units but do you think since Eminem was hiatus for 4 years, that contributed as the reason for people to buy his record? All I can say Eminem’s presence has been missed.

      The only idiots that would buy eminem’s album is white people. That’s why he sells what he sells. They have his back. He can rap about toilet paper & will still go platinum. He’s just a poster boy for white pop music. Not REAL hiphop.

      that’s a black comment… eminem is a superstar but you can’t say he’s got talent… rap becomes a way of expression and now people listen to rap as a real music style and not as an underground message to claim your street credibility… i do not think any rapper would be more valuable because he’s old (Rakim, KRS-One p.s.: i like them a lot) or because he’s a club banga (FloRida, Lil’Wayne blabla…) i could speak of it for hours and hours… the only problem people have with him is his colour… that’s sad… nowadays, black people are more racists than white ones…
