EMINEM’S FAN BASE REPORTEDLY STRONGEST IN MORE RURAL AREAS
Eminem fans are turning up where you might not expect.
It’s always a fascinating conversation when asked where a rapper’s biggest concentration of fans lie geographically. Besides their hometowns (which is usually a safe bet in terms of a strong, unwavering support base), the biggest pockets of their listeners in the United States might be in places you wouldn’t normally expect. Case in point: Eminem.
He’s often cited as an influence by rappers who have come up in big markets like New York or Los Angeles, but in actuality, a recent New York Times study has revealed that Em’s fan base is strongest in whiter, more rural areas. Examples of specific U.S. locations include West Virginia, southern Ohio, eastern Kentucky, northern Maine and the Ozarks in Missouri.
