Who Had The Biggest Comeback Of 2013?
He's a global icon. One of the most successful rappers of all time. He's also had one of his biggest years in his career. Early in the year there were the first teasers of when he might be dropping his eagerly awaited new album. With a headline slot at the Reading and Leeds Festivals, many thought summer would bring that record. It did come however, a few months later with first taster 'Survival' – which featured on a trailer for a new Call Of Duty video game. It was then the turn of 'Berzerk'. Throw in arguably one of his fiercest raps ever in 'Rap God' and suddenly it was like 1999 all over again. He was dominating the iTunes Charts and then the award shows. He picked up the Global Icon prize at the EMAs and also made a stand-out appearance at the first ever YouTube Awards - scooping artist of the year. 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2' was more than a sequel - it was a statement that this rapper is well and truly back, and here to stay!
