Eminem has a ton of awards and accolades after being in the music business for over 25 years, and it seems that he can add another notch to the belt — the rapper's greatest hits album Curtain Call: The Hits hit a milestone by spending 350 weeks on the Billboard Hot 2oo Charts.

Not only does the feat put the album in a list of longest-charting albums of all time, but it is the longest-charting hip-hop album, too.

The greatest hits album debuted at #1 on the charts back in 2005 when it was released and has held a steady position on the charts ever since. Despite the album being made up of Eminem's best early work, it also gave us four new singles at the time, including the highly underrated and possibly wildest Eminem song ever, "Fack."

What is even more impressive is how many of Eminem's albums have stuck around on the charts. 2002's The Eminem Show has spent an impressive 329 weeks on the Billboard 200, and 2010's Recovery has done an equally impressive 288 weeks on the Billboard 200.
