Top 10 Eminem Songs

When Eminem broke out of the Detroit rap scene in the late '90s with 'The Slim Shady' -- produced heavily by Dr. Dre -- it seemed he was destined for greatness. And he was. His debut LP went triple platinum, followed by five studio album releases, five compilation albums, 11 No. 1 singles, as well as an Academy Award-winning song and movie. In 2009 alone his album 'Relapse' earned him three Grammy Award nominations. And Eminem -- formally known as Marshall Bruce Mathers III -- shows no sign of slowing down. Here, we have compiled the Top 10 Eminem Songs as determined by AOL Radio listeners.
