Eminem is undoubtedly one of the greatest rappers alive. It is impressive because most of the rappers who have left a lasting impression are usually blacks. Eminem being white and still doing his thing and also being noticed all over the world is a big deal in the rap industry.
The Detroit rapper won the award for the Best Rap Album at Sunday’s Grammys, and it is his record-breaking 6th award in the category.
The Marshall Mathers LP 2 was his eighth studio album, a sequel of sorts to 2000’s The Marshall Mathers LP.
It would interest you to know that Eminem holds the record for the most wins in this category, with six. Lauryn Hill is currently the only female to win in this category, when she won in 1997 with the Fugees. Kanye West was presented the award four times, and the duo known as Outkast received the award twice. Jay-Z holds the record for the most nominations, with nine, which resulted in one win. Canadian artist Drake became the first non-American winner in this category, winning in 2013. The Rootshave received the most nominations without a win, with five.
