    The year 2014 marks the 18-year anniversary of Eminem's underground debut album Infinite. With almost 20 years worth of material floating around, Eminem has one of the densest musical catalogues out there. On top of that, he's also one of the most consistent rappers in the game, so you're hard-pressed to find something from Em that's not worth listening too.

    Eminem's new album, Marshall Mathers LP 2, may not have been what everyone expected. It definitely was not an obvious reminder of its namesake, the first Marshall Mathers LP, but as Eminem explains in his interview with Zane Lowe, he was going more for a "subliminally nostalgic" record-- not just a "blatant throwback." Was he successful?

    Eminem week officially hit us with full force. We've seen legendary rappers like Jay Z and Kanye West both drop albums this past year, but none compared to the chart domination of Slim Shady. As we mentioned last week, a few of Em's old albums had popped back up on the Billboard 200, presumably due to anticipation for new one, MMLP2.

    We recently heard Tech N9ne go crazy (and spit super fast) on Hopsin's "Rip Your Heart Out," which is just one of several collaborations the two rappers have done together.The same day "Rip Your Heart Out" dropped, we hit up DJ Skee's Skee Live show and got to talk to Tech about his music and who else he'd like to work with in the rap game. Tech Ninna revealed a desire to work with the self-proclaimed "Rap God" and fellow lyrical rapper, Eminem.

    Eminem sold an insane number of copies of The Marshall Mathers LP 2 this week, but it turns out it wasn't the only one of his albums flying off the shelves. The hype around Em's new record was apparently strong enough that ALL SEVEN of his previous solo albums showed up on the Billboard 200.

    Eminem took things back to basics on his new LP. The Detroit rapper recruited one of Hip Hop's pioneers, Rick Rubin, to help him channel some classic sounds and ideas, many of which came through sampling.  The late 80s era of hip hop they pull from is well-represented in plenty of small vocal snippets and interpolations not instantly evident to the casual rap listener. Many of the musical samples also harken back to the days of Run DMC, where rock-based loops were the norm.

    As expected, Eminem did some big numbers for the opening week of Marshall Mathers LP 2. The album was projected to sell 700,000 to 750,000, and if the initial numbers are correct, he did even better than projected.

    The Marshall Mathers LP dropped in 2000 and became the fastest selling solo album of all time, influencing a whole generation of artists with its unique and in-depth look into the bizarre world of Eminem. The album was sandwiched in between Slim Shady LP and The Eminem Show – two other classic albums that are every bit as influential today as they were a decade ago.

    Repetition remains a reality in the rap game, and specific bars tend to get overlooked. This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions. Keep in mind, these are the most noteworthy lyrics of the week, not necessarily the best.

    Eminem narrowly edged out the Beatles to become the best selling artist of the last decade, and it seems he's still competing with the band, now matching a Billboard record previously set by the fab four. Em is the first artist to have 4 singles simultaneously rank within the Billboard top 20 since 1964, with "Berzerk," "Rap God," "Survival" and "The Monster" all charting high. It should be noted that this is for "lead" artist, and not featured.

    One of the most anticipated tracks off Eminem's MMLPII was the Kendrick Lamar collaboration titled "Love Game." When the album leaked, and thus the track as well, fans were surprised at the concept record, which was in no way a scathing hip-hop record that we expected, but a very quirky song actually about love.

    Eminem is undoubtedly one of the best rappers of this generation, but his ability to freestyle it pretty untestable as well. His rhymes are intricate, complex, and sometimes just plain crazy. This list shows off Shady’s rare ability to spit off the cuff. Whether it has been in a group or rapping solo on a beat, the rapper embodies the art of freestyling.
