Rolling Stone just released a nine-page long analysis naming the King of Hip-Hop ... and the winner is: Eminem?!!?

Some are surprised over the ranking, but the mag says that it took into account album sales, chart rankings, YouTube views, social media, concert grosses, industry awards and critics' ratings when tallying its list.

Only solo rappers (not groups) were evaluated, and the time frame looked at was 2009 to present -- making this the crowning of the current King of Hip-Hop.

Ultimately, Jay-Z didn't even get second place! Here are the top five:

1) Eminem
2) Lil Wayne
3) Drake
4) Kanye
5) Jay-Z
