Just last week, Ice Cube’s AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted turned 25 years old, and today, another rap classic turns a page in the history books: Eminem‘s third studio LP, The Marshall Mathers LP.

While I’m a little too intoxicated on a cocktail of pain killers (I broke my foot skydiving this past Monday) to write up an essay on how important an album this was to Hip-Hop (you see, I can barely string a sentence together coherently), MMLP, which turns 15 years old today, did gift us unique, conceptual songs like “Stan” and the massive “The Way I Am.”

Marshall’s 2000-era album is also one of only a handful of Hip-Hop albums to reach the coveted diamond status, alongside he Eminem Show and Beastie Boys’ Licensed To Ill.

Congrats to Em, Dre, Paul and everyone involved in making history.
