Eminem is the ultimate hip-hop artist. His 1999 Slim Shady LP made him a super star and won the Best Rap Album Grammy.
2000â€“2001: The Marshall Mathers LP
This LP beat the fastest-selling hip-hop album record held by Snoop Dogg and the fastest-selling solo album record held by Britney Spears. Eminem is controversial to say the least making dubious claims about Christina Aguilera and parodying Marilyn Manson. The single "Stan" is on Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Songs of All Time" list.
