Eminem is the best-selling artist of the new millenium, and for good reason: He's an amazing rappers. His last solo album, Recovery, wasn’t just a commercial smash, but it also proved that whatever creative juices he lost through drug addiction were regained through sobriety.

He followed that up last year by teaming up with his old partner-in-rhyme Royce da 5’9” for Bad Meets Evil, a slick EP that showed Em can still kick witty lyrics with the best of them. Eminem’s legacy may be cemented, but it looks like he will continue to dish out lyrical beat downs for years to come.
