Eminem’s ‘Marshall Mathers LP 2′ By The Numbers
It’s that time again. With every big release, XXL has put it on constant repeat to unearth some interesting facts and numbers. Before Eminem’s Marshall Mathers LP 2 officially hit stores on Tuesday, we took in the project and found that he hasn’t steered too far away from his former self. Historically, Em’s been known to shock and awe so its no surprise that he does it like a seasoned veteran on his latest.
If you wondered how many times he says, “fuck,” or the number of references to his alter ego Slim, we got you covered. Here's MMLP2 by the numbers. —Complied By Eric Diep & Dan Jackson
