The Eminem Show sold over 284,000 copies on its first day. It is now one of the best-selling albums of all time, and the second best-selling album of the twenty-first century, with over 27 million copies sold. It was nominated for Album of the Year and won Best Rap Album at the 2003 Grammy Awards, while “Without Me” won Best Music Video. As promised, Eminem delivered an extended version of the album.

To mark the Billboard juggernaut’s 20th anniversary, Eminem has dropped an expanded edition of The Eminem Show, as promised. Slim Shady announced the news on Twitter. He citied lyrics from the late King of Hooks Nate Dogg’s song “Till I Collapse.”

‘Til I collapse I’m spillin’ these raps/long as you feel ’em’ 20 YEARS since #TheEminemShow!!! Expanded Edition out now.

There are 18 bonus tracks on the album. It includes four previously unreleased tracks — “Stimulate,” “The Conspiracy Freestyle,” “Bump Heads,” and “Jimmy, Brian, and Mike”. It also includes instrumentals of “Without Me,” “Sing for the Moment,” and “Cleanin’ Out My Closet.”

The album even includes live versions of “The Way I Am” and “The Real Slim Shady” from the Marshall Mathers LP. The song “Bump Heads,” in particular, was a jab at Ja Rule at the time, featuring 50 Cent and fellow G-Unit rappers Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks. Check it all out below.
