    take a look at these lyrics all the way back from the eminem show (2002):

    "lets do the math, if i was black, i wouldve sold half"

    now watch this (2017):



    em was expected to sell 500k but snoop said it :ermm:

    Well, yes, there's different factors.

    1) He had videos
    2) He as promotion
    3) He was big enough to get away with it
    4) He didn't go 4 years without a prior album
    5) It was a different era for album sales

    I thought this will be the first Eminem album I won't buy, but when the album grew on me I bought it along with Refill and h--- the Sequel.

    Oh guys... Check my sales thread. Just like I said, it's only a boycot or smh like that in US towrds EM. He sold like 265k in US and 135k in UK. I mean UK still buying that the whole Europe still buying his s---. It's just in US, probably caused by Trump thing which sounds pretty stupid but..

    encore was a very good album, far better than Revival. That's why it sold well. Plus the fact physical sales were much more of a thing back then, not so much now.

    You must think Revival is the worst album ever then.
