Eminem can add another notch to his belt as his album, The Eminem Show, was declared diamond.  Get the deets inside plus see the open letter he penned for Detroit.

 

Eminem has reason to celebrate with the diamond certification of his Grammy Award winning album The Eminem Show by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).  The album has moved over 10 million records.  

Also,  Eminem recently penned an open letter to the city of Detroit which has been torn apart by crime, poverty and unemployment for years.



His letter begins,

"You took our country from its infancy into industry. And your name still carries with it, the idea of a nation. Built on steel, muscle and sweat. you became a city that carried a country," Eminem said. "Who know that nothing is accomplished without hard work, without sacrifice. When you hurt, we hurt..."

Congrats Eminem on your second Diamond CD. The Eminem Show is one of my favorites behind your other Diamond CD The Marshall Matthers LP. You so deserve it. The best rapper alive! I am a fan and have been since day one.

Inspiring video and a nice

Inspiring video and a nice follow-up to his SuperBowl commercial - Em has always been a vocal ambassador for Detroit - he is fiercely loyal to his city which has been through the ringer for years - it's a damn shame that most people outside of Detroit can't think of a single redeeming quality when they think of that poor city.

DEAREST DETROIT.. YOU'VE NOW

DEAREST DETROIT.. YOU'VE NOW BECOME T-H-E BIGGEST PLANTATION YET SEEN! You took a woman hating/homophobic/race-baiting (with lengthy-arrest record/lyrics-as-documentation/on-stage-antics 'offered as evidence'...) GIMMICK, and made him, not only your "Native Son and Prophet", but also YOUR Messiah. May HE quiet, then part YOUR Red Seas on way to YOUR "Promised Lands." Detroit, you've now made yourselves the laughing stock of the world! Detroit, you were robbed. (your heart was 'ripped out' by The Republicans, when your Unions were busted, and your factories then shipped overseas). Detroit, you were lied to (the Republicans told you that shipping YOUR jobs overseas would soon-then return cheaper goods, thereby giving you a higher standard of living). Detroit, Lake Michigan had "overran it's banks." That 'stench, moss and goo' is the chemical reaction/"empirical-estrogen aftereffects" of 'Hurricane Oprah'. She stole your manhood (she now has it on-display over her mantle. It's a wonderful conversation piece when Rihanna, Alice Walker, Tyra Banks, Deseree Washington and "Sista-Girl Black America" sits then for evening tea.) Detroit, where BEFORE you had hope, you've NOW sold it for hype, hysteria and the hypocrisy of the mainstream. Detroit, abandon ALL hope. You're now lost! X,Y,"and Z" -- OUT...!!

Y do U talk SO much when you

Y do U talk SO much when you Know so LITTLE, and say even less. You offer no POINT! no reference, no data, no statistics, no IMAGINATION. I can replace the word "Detroit" and insert any city i.e. DC, Oakland, Atlanta. You're not half as deep as your mother mislead you to believe. You know NO THING of what you speak. You don't know Belle Island From Boblo Island, Inkster, from Gross Point. U-R still on you ABC's my friend
