Eminem recently relinquished his title of wordiest rapper. But he just earned another distinction that probably means more since it's directly related to his net worth.
Thanks to his 2010 hit 'Not Afraid,' Shady became the first artist to have two diamond certified (10 million sales) digital singles. The first was for another Recovery track, the Rihanna-featured smash 'Love The Way You Lie'.
"We are delighted to recognize Eminem as the first artist to earn two RIAA Digital Diamond Awards. This singular achievement – earning a Diamond Award on two separate digital songs – is unparalleled, and we congratulate him on forever etching a mark in Gold & Platinum Program history," said RIAA Chairman/CEO Cary Sherman.Does this further bolster Em's argument for being one of the all-time greats?
