An exhaustive guide to everyone that Eminem dissed on the Marshall Mathers LP

Back on 23 May 2000, Eminem released his third album, The Marshall Mathers LP, and the follow-up to his breakthrough Slim Shady LP, which had seen him become a huge - and controversial - international star.

It sold staggering numbers - more than 1.76m copies in the US in the first week alone - with the album holding the title of fastest-selling studio album by a solo artist in US chart history all the way up until very recently, when Adele's 25 took the crown.

However, success had not mellowed the famously combustible rapper - and if anything, he was angrier than ever, taking pot-shots at everything and anyone, including the nature of fame itself. Canadian author Robert Everett-Green summed it up best when he said: "Being offensive is Eminem's job description."

As soon as the record was released, people scoured the lyrics to see who he'd attacked this time, and they found plenty of material. So, 16 years on from the record's release, who ended up winning out of the all the people he started lyrical beefs with? We take a look at the ultimate victors.
