Eminem's 2002 blockbuster, 8 Mile, just celebrated its 20th anniversary, and now the movie's soundtrack is officially six-times platinum.
According to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), the album has now sold over six million units in the United States since its release in October 2002 and went 4x platinum in January 2003 (the date of it going 5x platinum was not listed). A deluxe edition of the soundtrack was released last month in celebration of the film's anniversary.
