    White America’s off Eminem show. Good one.

  • Fix up look sharp

    In no way did the Eminem Show do 5 million copies, World Wide it sold 19 million, and in the U.S. it is now at just over 9.9 million. It will pass the 10 million mark in the next 6 months making it eligible for Diamond certification like The Marshall Mathers LP which is at 10.4 million in the U.S. Get your facts straight.
