Here is another list from the book: Eminem
Let me know what you think!!
Does one of the best-selling artists need more exposure? The answer is yes. Eminem is a great example of how to stay relevant in a rapidly changing field. One of hip-hop’s greatest innovations is the “guest spot.” Sometimes rappers can overdo it and include too many guests on their album. There is nothing more annoying than a rapper having so many guests that he barely has any time for himself. Featuring a couple of really great guests can have a huge impact on your album credibility, not to mention more exposure for the guest. Eminem is the best guest any rapper can ask to have on his album. Em’s drop-ins are magnetic, not just elevating the songs but inspiring his fellow rappers, too. Would 50 Cent be a household name without Em’s involvement? Would Dr. Dre’s Chronic 2001 be as legendary without young Eminem’s pugilistic word-wit?
Eminem is not successful because of his guest spots. It’s his lyrics. He is one of the best lyricists of all time in any genre. It just goes to show that everybody can benefit from a little help, even the best.
Fun Fact: In America, Eminem was the top-selling artist of the ’00s, selling 32 million albums. Close behind in second place were The Beatles.
