Eminem’s list of accolades is already long and decorated but he keeps adding more achievements to it. Eminem’s contributions to hip-hop culture is incalculable. Slim Shady’s achievements continue to mount one by one. The legendary rapper is also not afraid to remind audiences about his humble roots, as he was poor as a child and was depicted as such in the film 8 Mile.
Marshall Mathers’ latest album “Music to Be Murdered By” has returned to the Billboard 200 for its 100th week. Eminem now holds the record for the most albums that have spent 100 weeks or more on the album chart. Marshall now has seven albums that have charted for a long time.

Em has the highest number out of all hip-hop artists, this has a lot to do with his mainstream crossover appeal To be honest, it’s the highest number among musicians of all genres. Taylor Swift previously held the record with the same seven albums, but Eminem has now surpassed her.
Here’s something else to think about: “Music to Be Murdered By” is the first album of this decade to chart for 100 weeks. Yes, we are only two years into this decade. At the same time, it means that no other album has charted for as long as Eminem’s in the last two years.
Eminem may have a successful year in 2022 as well, especially with a new album rumored to be on the way. You can stream “Music to Be Murdered By” below.
