A Biography from eminem.com
The average rapper wouldn't be able to grace the pages of Rap Pages, VIBE, Rolling Stone,
Spin, The Source, URB and Stress and go on a national tour months before their major-label
debut album is released. Then again, Eminem isn't an average rapper. He's phenomenal.
The impending release of the The Slim Shady LP, his first set on Aftermath/Interscope
Records, already has underground hip-hop heads fiending for Eminem. Chock full of dazzling
lyrical escapades that delve into the mind of a violently warped and vulgar yet extremely
talented wordsmith, the 14-cut collection contains some of the most memorable and demented
lyrics ever recorded.
For Eminem, his potentially controversial and undoubtedly offensive songs will strike a chord
with a multitude of hip-hop loyalists who believe they have little to lose and everything to
"I'm not alone in feeling the way I feel," he says. "I believe that a lot of people can relate to my
shit--whether white, black, it doesn't matter. Everybody has been through some shit, whether
it's drastic or not so drastic. Everybody gets to the point of 'I don't give a fuck.'"
Those words are more than just a slogan for the Detroit resident. "I Just Don't Give A Fuck"
and "Brain Damage" are the two songs comprising Eminem's initial single from The Slim
Shady LP. Each tune is sure to paralyze meek listeners with their relentless lyrical assault.
Produced primarily by long-time collaborators FBT Productions, the Slim Shady LP also
features beatwork from Aftermath CEO Dr. Dre. The N.W.A. alum handled beats for "My Name
Is" (the second single), "Guilty Conscience" and "Role Model."
Dr. Dre was so impressed after hearing Eminem freestyling on a Los Angeles radio station that
he put out a manhunt for the Michigan rhymer. Shortly thereafter, Dre signed Eminem to his
Aftermath imprint and the two began working together. Thoroughly impressed with Eminem's
previously released independent Slim Shady EP, Dre said they would include many of the EP's
tracks on the album.
"It was an honor to hear the words out of Dre's mouth that he liked my shit," Eminem says.
"Growing up, I was one of the biggest fans of N.W.A, from putting on the sunglasses and
looking in the mirror and lipsinking to wanting to be Dr. Dre, to be Ice Cube. This is the biggest
hip-hop producer ever.
