5. Eminem's debut album sold a sad 1000 copies
Everyone knows Eminem got his big break when he signed with Dr Dre and released 'The Slim Shady LP.' But few realise that Eminem had previously signed with Web Entertainment in 1996 and released his solo debut album 'Infinite' – which sold a mere 1000 copies. Imagine Eminem called it a day after that flop? He wouldn't have continued to make underground music that eventually caught Dr. Dre's interest.
