The Story of Eminem's Two Big Albums

 Q:   Ask a Question about The Story of Eminem's Two Big Albums       
The rapper master Eminem’s third big album is “The Eminem Show” which was released in 2002 and it became successful in selling over 1 million copies in its first week of release.

It featured “Without Me”, which is a kind of sequel to The Real Slim Shady. The Eminem Show is a hip hop classic and has been certified diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

The album basically reflected on the impact of his rise to fame, his status in the hip-hop community and his relationship with his wife and daughter. It also reflected the charges he faced over assailing a bouncer he saw kissing his wife in 2000.

However L. Brent Bozell III, who previously criticized The Marshall Mathers LP for the use of mi sogynistic lyrics, commented on “The Eminem Show” for the extensive use of obscene language.

His fourth biggest album is “Encore” which came in 2004 with a sale of 700,000 copies in its first week itself. The album has been certified 7 times platinum by RIAA. The main highlight of the album was “Just Lose It” as it reflected disrespect towards none other than Michael Jackson. It referred to Jackson’s legal troubles.

The dissatisfaction was not only shown by Michael Jackson, but was also shown by some of Jackson’s supporters and friends, Stevie Wonder and Steve Harvey.

In 2007, Jackson and Sony bought Famous Music LLC from Viacom, which gave him the rights to songs by Eminem, Shakira and Beck, and few others. Encore has few comedic singles and dew subjected to serious matter. In 2004, “Mosh” was released, which is an anti-war track.

It was released on the Internet, a week before the 2004 U.S. Presidential election. The song featured a very strong anti-Bush message and the video features Eminem gathering up an army of people and leading them to the White House.

However, once the army breaks in, it is revealed that they are there to simply register to vote, and the video ends with the words "VOTE Tuesday November 2" on the screen.

Hence, amongst the hit albums of Eminem’s, is also included “The Eminem Show” and “Encore”.
