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.

When the Beastie Boys first hit big with "(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party)" in 1987, they crossed the hip-hop color lines and became the first white rap group with any real cred.
Still, with its frat-boy chorus, the song seemed to be somewhat of a novelty. Would they really be able to keep up with the likes of Run-DMC, Public Enemy and Eric B. & Rakim – all contemporary black rap groups?
I, like many other young blacks into hip-hop at the time, was skeptical. But the answer was a surprising, resounding yes. Which is why the untimely death of Adam "MCA" Yauch from cancer at 47 hits so hard.
