Eminem isn't an average rapper. He's phenomenal. His first set on Aftermath/Interscope Records, already has underground hip-hop heads finding 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 gain.

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 to impressed after hearing Eminem freestyling on Friday Night Flavas on Power 106 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 The Slim Shady EP, Dre said they would include many of the EP's tracks on the album.

Muze PNote A Caucasian rapper from Detroit, a Dr. Dre disciple with bright blonde hair--at first glance, Eminem seemed the unlikeliest of hip-hop stars. However, his debut, THE SLIM SHADY LP, contained clever rhymes and even the occasional innovation. His sophomore effort, THE MARSHALL MATHERS LP, proved that Eminem was no fluke, but instead a legitimate rap visionary.
Muze PNote While his horror/shock rap can be unsettling, it's more often hilarious, as he and his Slim Shady character skewer anyone and everyone, notably the MTV-based world that surrounded him after the success of his first record. Few can come up with rhymes as consistently clever as this Motor City madman, and lines that will be repeated as long as this CD is spun. The most startling moment has to be "Stan," featuring haunting, ethereal guest vocals from Dido; an incongruously sublime track, it spins an O. Henry-meets-'60s teenage-death-song tale of obsessed fan worship gone terribly wrong.

Artist Overview

Turning the music world on its head, Eminem, the blond-haired rapper from Detroit, forced the hip-hop world to accept him as an equal. Despite lyrics full of anger, misogyny, violence, racism, and homophobia, Eminem has been a major commercial success since his debut in 1999, selling records as no black rapper with similar lyrical content ever could. Considered by many a "rapper's rapper," the Dr. Dre-sponsored Eminem has accomplished the seemingly impossible--platinum sales with street cred intact, largely due to his triplet-based rhyme meter and undeniable narrative skill.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (1/4/01, p.106)
- Ranked #1 in Rolling Stone's Top 10 Albums of 2000 - "...His tortured conscience gives the album its complex emotional kick..."

Rolling Stone (7/20/00, pp.135-6)
- 4 stars out of 5 - "...He's more funny and much more scary....A car-crash record: loud, wild, dangerous, out of control, grotesque, unsettling. It's also impossible to pull your ears awat from."

Spin (1/01, p.73)
- Ranked #3 in Spin's "Top 20 Albums of the Year [2000]" - "...What 'going too far' means: really, finally brought that psycho rude s*** home to the 'burbs....leaving more things unsettled than when he started."

Entertainment Weekly (6/2/00, pp.76-7)
- "...Indefensible and critic-proof, hypocritical and heartbreaking, unlistenable and undeniable; it's a disposable shock-rap session, and the first great pop record of the 21st century..." - Rating: A-

Q (1/01, p.90)
- Included in Q's "50 Best Albums of 2000".

Q (8/00, p.98)
- 3 stars out of 5 - "...[His] disaffection sucks you in and the wholesale nihilism can still provoke shivers..."

Uncut (8/00, p.90)
- 4 stars out of 5 - "...You might not like where he's dragging you, but there's no denying the style with which he does it..."

CMJ (1/08/01, p.10)
- Included in CMJ's "Best of the Year" for 2000.

CMJ (6/12/00, p.3)
- "...Musically, the album is a triumph....You can't deny [the lyrics'] searing honesty, and that's what makes [him] one of pop's compelling artists."

Vibe (8/00, p.162)
- "...Should forever erase the notion that [he] is the Elvis Presley of hardcore hip hop. If anything, he's rap's Eric Clapton: a white boy who can hang with the best black talent based on sheer skill - enhancing the art form instead of stealing from it."

The Source (8/00, pp.225-6)
- 4 mics out of 5 - "...You wanna peep [this LP], if not for the intense lyrics and witty punch lines, at least for the chance of witnessing one of the craziest MCs grow up right before ya ears."

Melody Maker (6/6/00, p.54)
- 4 stars out of 5 - "...It has an answer to everything, filling every parking-spot in the towering multi-storey of ego with a triple-bluffmobile....No one else puts such a rocket under rap's self-consciousness or makes it so shocking..."

Rap Pages (7/00, p.45)
- "...Even more abrasive and offensive....proving again that his imagery and storytelling abilities stand tall over most other rappers..."

Mojo (Publisher)
- Ranked #78 in Mojo's "100 Modern Classics" -- "The results were brutal, politically insane, loaded with pop hooks, and hysterically funny."

NME (Magazine)
(12/30/00, p.77)
- Ranked #7 in NME's "Top 50 Albums Of The Year".

NME (Magazine)
(6/3/00, p.39)
- 9 out of 10 - "...Real long, disillusioned whine....[It] may be the white noise of America's Most Unwanted, but it also the product of a talent supremely Untouchable."
