List Rules This list includes studio albums only, so if you add an album make sure it's a proper studio release.

Eminem is one of the greatest rappers of all time and easily one of the best white rappers ever. Consisting of all his albums with the album covers, this Eminem discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Eminem albums can be separated from the rest. To make it easy for you, we haven't included Eminem singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums.
