Eminem’s Marshall Mathers LP Goes Diamond
The Marshall Mathers LP, Eminem’s second album to be released on Aftermath/Interscope Records, has officially received a diamond certification from the RIAA.
Released in May 2000, the disc sold 1.7 million units in the first week of sales alone. Now eleven years later, the LP has sold over 10 million units in the U.S. alone.
As previously reported, last month 2002’s The Eminem Show, Shady’s third disc for Aftermath/Interscope, also went diamond. This recent certification makes Em the only artist in rap history with two diamond plaques. —Nicole LoPresti
