Eminem scores a double-triple on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart (dated Sept. 23), as his greatest hits set, Curtain Call: The Hits, collects a milestone 100th week on the list with a 28-23 rise. The collection is the rapper’s second set to reach the century mark, following his third LP, 2002’s The Eminem Show, which charted for 130 weeks.

Call contains several of Eminem’s hit singles from 1999-2004, including “Without Me,” “The Real Slim Shady” and 12-week Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 “Lose Yourself,” and debuted and peaked at No. 2 upon its release in December 2005.
