Jay Z has three Blueprint albums and Lil Wayne has four Carter ones, and now Eminem makes his first sequel with the follow-up installment to his 2000 blockbuster.

"Here's a sequel to my Mathers LP just to try to get people to buy," spits the rapper born Marshall Mathers, conceding the commercial benefits in the opening minutes. Like most sequels, though, this one can't beat the original.

How the Beastie Boys Changed the Game: PEOPLE Music Critic Tribute

Beastie Boys Changed the Game: PEOPLE Music Tribute
