Rolling Stone crowns Eminem king of hip-hop

The numbers are in, and Eminem is hip-hop's king.

This is according to Rolling Stone, which crunched data from album sales, social media influence, YouTube views, touring revenue and a number of other determining factors to find out who sits atop hip-hop's throne.

The magazine looked at figures from 20 of hip-hop's top artists, including Kanye West, Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj and more. Eminem came out on top, and was followed by Lil Wayne (No. 2), Drake (No. 3) and West (No. 4).

Eminem leads in album sales, with more than double those of Lil Wayne, who came in second. Em also led in YouTube views (more than 1.3 billion) and social networking (more than 48 million combined Twitter followers and Facebook "likes";). He also had strong showings in the Awards (ranking behind only Jay-Z and Lil Wayne) and Reviews fields (were West reigned supreme).

"As recently as three years ago, Eminem winning a survey like this was unthinkable; his nearly half-decade hiatus from recording made any comeback unlikely, let alone one in which he took back the charts as if he'd never left," Rolling Stone's Chris Molanphy wrote.

Rolling Stone's King of Hip-Hop tally follows its Queen of Pop feature from earlier this summer, which determined Lady Gaga is in pop's pole position.
