Slim Shady LP
Slightly over looked due to the massive success of it's follow up 'The Marshall Mathers LP' this is where Slim Shadys attack on the youth of today all began! Having had achieved nothing with his debut 'Infinate' Eminem was angry and had alot to say, enter Dr.Dre. Seeing the talent in young Marshall Bruce Mathers III he signed him up to Aftermath Records, and the Slim Shady character was born! A creation molded perfectly to 'Piss off your moms and dads', Shady was almost a cartoon of Marshall, with sharp wit and dark stories of murder, drugs and sex. People were outraged. This is however the careful crafting of a marketing genius, slapping parents and polititians in the face while making millions from there anger. You will know a few of the songs but the ones you dont will hook you in, this record sounds fresher than later albums, full of clever rhymes and snappy snare beats.
