Well Eminem is at least a decent MC and he's a great lyricist better than Jay-Z and some compare him to Nas.
Rakim himself admitted that Eminem is dope.
He tried to shock people and draw attention to him,Bush senior called him the most dangerous threat to America.But most important is the fact that he is W-H-I-T-E and that helped him in sales.
Eminem may be overrated as he is the most successful hip-hop artist ever but he is certainly skilled enough to be an important "artist" in the hip-hop industry.
I think it's a very young crowd (teens) that account for the bulk of his album sales.
Wow now you sounded like Bill O'Reilly,you don't want that do you?

I hope I don't sound like a Stan.
