The fourth studio album of rapper Marshall Mathers, aka Eminem, The Eminem Showwas released in 2002. It reached No. 1 in nineteen countries and has sold over 10 million copies since its release. Featuring singles like"Without Me,""Cleanin' Out My Closet," and"Superman,"The Eminem Show marked yet another success for the rapper.
His first mainly self-produced album, The Eminem Show also marked a number of other firsts in Eminem's career, including printing out the song lyrics in the CD booklet - something he'd refrained from releasing in the past. Overall, The Eminem Show marked a new level of self-confidence in Eminem, and - as an album named one of the best of the 2000s - that confidence definitely paid off.
