Tough to say... I mean Em has been more successfully album wise but commercially Hov has been more successful (his labels, business ventures, #1s, etc.). I say Hov tho b/c of the influence, how many Jay-Z verses have been cemented in hiphop history ? How many quotables does he have ? Marshall has hot lines & sure is the better lyricist but Hov's verses I think resonate a bit more & have staying power just think - "it was all good just a week ago" , "in my lifetime" , "once a good girl gone bad shes gone forever" , "dont matter where u go u are who u are playa" , "cry me a river, build a bridge & get over it" , "change clothes" theres soooo many verses, literally it feels like theres a jay-z verse for everything. Nigga is like the rap version of Bob Dylan. Shit he even dresses like him too LOL.
I say Hov (reluctantly)....

Eminem as far as the Album's he's dropped, his sales, the quality of records like Lose Yourself which is one of the greatest Song's ever
He has won way more Grammy's and awards then Jay Z also won an Oscar
Had Album's voted as some of the greatest ever made in Rolling Stone magazine
Has had way more Hit's then Jay Z on the Chart's including 2 number one's with Lose Yourself & Crack A Bottle and pretty much ever other Single peaking in the top 10 in the Chart at the very least
Hold's the record for selling the highest in the opening week with 1.7 Million in 2000 and repeated selling a MIllion in the first week again in 2002
