Eminem has led an unbelievable career in rap, but these mind-blowing career achievements show just how much of a G.O.A.T. Slim Shady really is.

As Em continues to roll out his upcoming album The Death of Slim Shady (Coupe de Grâce), it's worth noting that Marshall Mathers has continued to break records despite not having released an album since 2020's Music to Be Murdered By. In 2021, Eminem broke his own record by having the highest streamed discography on Spotify, with 11 of his solo records raking in over a billion streams. Not to mention that Curtain Call, a greatest hits compilation, was listened to a billion times. It was even deemed one of the best-selling albums of 2021, 16 years after its release.

Then in 2023, Eminem emerged as the 10th highest-selling artist of all time, as reported by ChartMasters, beating out rock legends Led Zeppelin with 207.2 million total combined sales in his career. This makes Em the only rapper in the top 40, with Drake closing in at No. 41 with over 120 million sales. Ye and Tupac elsewhere fall at No. 61 and No. 73, respectively.

It's worth noting these are just streaming and sales records, but Em has demolished numerous world records during his reign as one of rap's most celebrated artists. As fans feverishly wait for new music, XXL has compiled a list of the eight most insane records Em has broken.
