Eminem Celebrates 20th Anniversary of ‘The Marshall Mathers LP’ with a Listening Party


Eminem’s third studio album, The Marshal Mathers LP, turned 20 on May 23. To celebrate the milestone, the diamond-selling MC announced a listening party for the highly revered project via Twitter.

The Marshall Mathers LP debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart where it remained for a consecutive eight weeks. It sold over 1.78 million copies in its first week, making it one of the fastest-selling albums in the United States. The album also earned a rare diamond certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for selling over 10 million copies. To date, the project has sold well over 25 million copies and is one of the best-selling albums of all time.

The listening party will go down on May 27 and Slim Shady will be answering fan questions in the live chat, but the start time is TBA. Other 20th anniversary goodies include newly remastered videos from the MMLP era, including “The Real Slim Shady,” The Way I Am” and both the long and short versions of “Stan” featuring Dido.
