Kamikaze represents Eminem's ninth album to climb as high as no. 1 on the Billboard 200. Only his major label debut The Slim Shady LP failed to hit no. 1, and only by the narrowest of margins. He now shares the distinction of nine no. 1 albums with Garth Brooks and The Rolling Stones, good for 5th place all-time. Only The Beatles, Jay-Z, Bruce Springsteen, Barbara Streisand and Elvis Presley stand in his way.
