Eminem sold more albums than any other artist in 2018
He's easily one of the most popular rappers of all time. Period. End of story. If he doesn't appeal to you that's one thing, there is no denying his impact on rap, the music industry, culture, etc... most of his peers and even those before his time would agree. If that doesn't make him ONE OF the GOAT, I don't know what the hell does.
1,500 stream = 1 album sale, therefore meaning he "sold" 33.33m album-equivalent via streams.
Eminem SSLP, Curtain Calls, and Recovery alone sold > 10m units each. And TES, MMLP and Encore sold > 20m units each. And that doesn't include individual single sales, and I haven't even mentioned 8 Mile OST which sold >5m units.
Drake is "big" now, but that doesn't even compare to how big Eminem has been from the late 1990s through early 2010s.
Kamikaze was solid album, play it every now and then still.
Dont think I was able to get through revival even once straight through without skipping tracks but it had some good songs sprinkled in there.
So many people using streams as a metric for quality yet there are fucking two Post Malone songs on the top streamed music. And he was number 2 behind Drake on Spotify's most streamed artist of 2018. Say what you want about Kamikaze but it was better than anything Post has done. And Kamikaze was pretty weak.
The 'rappers' listed will have made no meaningful impact on music history. Their whole act is a gimmick. I completely believe the current gen will fade fast and those into mumble rap will look back in horror what they used to consider music. It will not age well at all. Much like how the cringey emo trend died off.
