Eminem Receives 'Artist Of The Decade' Award Plaque In California
In December, Nielsen SoundScan named Eminem the "Artist of the Decade" for selling more than 32 million albums over his career.
The rapper recently headed down to their offices to put up his award.
They sent us this picture of Eminem holding the award with Dr. Dre, Interscope head Jimmy Iovine, his manager Paul Rosenberg and Nielsen heads, Eric Weinberg and Chris Muratore.
Eminem will have a chance to add to his all-time sales number in June when he releases his new album, Recovery, on 22nd.
Just last week, the rapper dropped the first taste of what's to come via a new single called "Not Afraid." He premiered the track on his Shade 45 Sirius/XM station, during Angela Yee's "The Morning After" show.
Em confirmed that he's been working with a variety of producers for the album, including Just Blaze, Mr. Porter, Jim Jonsin, DJ Khalil, Boi-1da, Dr. Dre, and Havoc.
