Eminem Has The Longest Billboard-Charting Hip Hop Album Of All Time

Although he hasn’t released an album since 2013’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2, Eminem has managed to achieve a record on the Billboard charts that may not ever be reached in the near future.

The Southpawer, an Eminem fan site, is reporting that Marshall’s Curtain Call: The Hits — which was released December 6th, 2005 — has not entirely left the Billboard 200 since it first landed on the charts, making it the longest-charting rap album of all time. In other words, the album has been on the Billboard charts for 350 weeks, or 6.71 years, or 2,450 days.

Even more amazing, that isn’t the only Eminem album that just lived on the charts. 2002’s The Eminem Show sat on the charts for 329 weeks, while his 2010 album Relapse chilled for 288 weeks.

Curtain Call is currently seven times platinum in the United States (and quadruple platinum in New Zealand), and counting.

In other news, Eminem also teamed up with director Joseph Kahn to produce a new movie about battle rap called Bodied. Peep the trailer, which finds real life battle rapper Dizaster (you know, the one who battled Canibus and punched Math Hoffa) going to town on a poor, unsuspecting soul, below.

In other other news, T.I. offered some high praise for both Eminem and André 3000 during a recent interview.
