Review of Billboard history books may already show there is certainly no scarcity of the name Eminem mentioned, but – as his newest achievement underscores – the future will undoubtedly see even more room made for Slim Shady accomplishments.
The latest feat comes courtesy of his appearance on fellow rapper Logic‘s hit, ‘Homicide.’ As the 29-year-old is reportedly well on his way to topping the Billboard 200 next week with his latest album, ‘Confessions of a Dangerous Mind,’ his feature from Em (born Marshall Mathers) precedes the coronation by debuting in the top 5 on this week’s Hot 100.
With the newest addition to his Hot 100 chart history (the 21st of his career), Mathers is now tied with Jay Z for the third most top 10 hits among rappers (only Drake and Lil Wayne have more). Of his 21 top 10 placements, 5 of them topped the chart (‘Love the Way You Lie’ featuring Rihanna, ‘The Monster’ with Rihanna, ‘Not Afraid,’ ‘Lose Yourself,’ and ‘Crack a Bottle’ with Dr. Dre and 50 Cent). As it relates to #1 hits among rappers, only Drake has more than Eminem (as of time reported).
As we extend our congratulations, look below to see who joins him in the top 25 on this week’s TGJ Chart Check: Hot 100 edition:
