      Eminem’s a rip off…Sir Luscious is THE album of the year.

  • zayo

    Even if Em’s album was out later it could be best seller of the year.

    LOL. Recovery is going to slay Annebelum, next week it will be around 1.5 mili :D
    The only artist to beat out the Beatles in sales over the last decade is about to rule the next decade !

    • Jen

      Antebellum sold 2.35 million copies already,and dont be so sure about 1.5 mill next week cause the sales numbers are gonna fall to 150 – 180k

      • JesseDaGreat

  • Zayo

    Yeah you know Eminem is the same guy behind the best track on the rap history : Rock Bottom, Lose Yourself, 8 Mile, Renegade, Space Bound, Stan, It’s Ok, 8 Mile, Hailie’s Song, COMC.
