2000 - Eminem - The Slim Shady LP

Grammy Awards Best Rap Album Winners

By

2000 - Eminem - The Slim Shady LP
A 24-year old blonde MC from Detroit? Unapologetic paeans to drugs and violence? The task before Eminem seemed illogical, but he turned trials into trophies a year later. Complaints about Em's "destructive" lyrical content failed to stifle the album's success--The Slim Shady LP went on to sell over five million copies.

Nominees:
  • Busta Rhymes - E.L.E.: Extinction Level Event (The Final World Front)
  • Missy Elliott - Da Real World
  • Nas - I Am...
  • The Roots - Things Fall Apart
