Eminem‘s compilation album Curtain Call: The Hits is officially the first and only hip-hop record to spend a full decade on the Billboard 200 chart.

According to reports, the rapper’s 2005 project logged its 520th week on the chart ending March 27. It was also previously the sixth-longest-running album on the chart, falling behind behind Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon at 958 weeks, Bob Marley and the Wailers’ Legend at 669 weeks, Journey’s Greatest Hits at 659 weeks, Metallica’s Black Album at 598 weeks and Guns N Roses’ Greatest Hits at 520 weeks.

Curtain Call is Em’s first compilation album and was released in December 2005. The explicit 17-track project (15 on the clean version) features the rapper’s biggest hits at the time, including classics such as “Lose Yourself,” “The Real Slim Shady,” “My Name Is,” “Stan” and two previously-unreleased cuts “When I’m Gone” and “Shake That.” Curtain Call marked the rapper’s last release prior to his four-year hiatus, following it up with Relapse which went on to become the best-selling hip-hop album of 2009.

In case you missed it, Keith Ape revealed he has less than six months to live.
