On Jan. 10, the rapper announced he’d just hit 50 million YouTube subscribers. He chose to celebrate the news with fans on Twitter by sharing a montage of some of his most popular videos and revisited some of his lyrics from the 2002 Eminem Show single “Sing For The Moment”
This isn’t the first time that Marshall Mathers has smashed YouTube records. In 2018, at the height of Slim Shady’s highly publicized beef with Machine Gun Kelly, Eminem earned the platform’s biggest hip hop debut with “Killshot”. The diss track also made the third biggest overall debut in YouTube’s history.
Last November, the 2002 single “Without Me” crossed one billion views and Eminem’s camp celebrated the achievement by releasing a new HD version of the video. Just nine months prior to that, “Rap God” also hit one billion views. It was his third video to do so.
Eminem who started his career over two decades ago doesn’t seem to be slowing down. He’s achieved so much in 2021 and more to come in 2022. Keep an eye out on Thirsty for more updates.
