iTunes Editors’ Notes

In 2000, a crack in the subterranean crust allowed Slim Shady to crawl out from the underground and infiltrate the rap industry with a rage previously unheard and unseen. On the Slim Shady LP, Eminem and producer Dr. Dre form a potent combination that connected disenfranchised kids across the color and economic spectrum. "Brain Damage" and "Just Don't Give a F**k" were single-digit salutes to bullies and detractors, while "My Name Is," "Guilty Conscience," and "Role Model" smoke enemies. As for "Bonnie and Clyde 97", it's one of the most evil payback scenarios ever recorded.

Customer Reviews

Let's just all say that Eminem is cool and makes great albums and we don't want him to retire.

Yeeeeaah. Ya know, Eminem is the bomb! WE MUST ALL HAIL HIM NOW!!! Sorry I just had to type that. "My name is" is a really funny song that makes you wanna laugh. The courus is catchy. P.S. Rate my review helpful if you don't want Em to retire!

My Name Is {scratches} The Best Rapper Ever

This is Eminem's, or Marshall Mathers', first successful album. He had two previous albums: The Slim Shady EP (1997) and Infinite (1995). Don't get too excited, these albums aren't on iTunes and are extremely rare. Oh well, that's enough Eminem history. He's a genius and definitely the best white rapper, or, in my opinion, the best rapper ever and my favorite artist. He has a lot of talent. Here's the rating for each song. I put a * next to the hit(s). My Name Is- 10/10 * Guilty Conscience- 9/10 (10/10 with chorus on radio version) * Brain Damage- 8.5/10 If I Had- 8/10 97’ Bonnie & Clyde- 10/10 Role Model- 8.5/10 My Fault- 10/10 Come On Everybody- 9.25/10 Rock Bottom- 9.25/10 Just Don’t Give- 9.75/10 * As the World Turns- 9/10 I’m Shady- 9.25/10 Bad Meets Evil- 8.5/10 Still Don’t Give- 9.75/10 I know there aren’t a lot of hits, but all the ones over 9 should be a hit. Since that’s 10/14 songs, this is an awesome CD and Eminem is the best! Buy the album. All of it. And all the rest of Eminem’s CDs. Eminem rocks. Here's some lyrics: Rock Bottom, Verse 1: I feel like I'm walkin a tight rope, without a circus net Poppin perkaset, I'm a nervous wreck I deserve respect; but I work and sweat for this worthless check I'm bout to burst this tech at somebody to reverse this debt Minimum wage got my adrenaline caged Full of venom and rage, 'specially when I'm engaged and my daughter's down to her last diaper, it's got my a** hyper I pray that God answers, maybe I'll ask nicer Watchin ballers while they flossin in they Pathfinders These overnight stars becomin autograph signers We all long to blow up and leave the past behind us Along with the small fry's and average half pinters But playa haters turnin b**** like they have v******* Cause we see them dollar signs and let the cash blind us Money'll brainwash you and leave yo' a** mindless when snakes slither in the grass spineless My Fault, *Whole Song * Eminem does the voices of all characters in the song * [G] Eminem as Susan (the girl) [D] Eminem as Dave [J] Eminem as John [R] Eminem as Ron Chorus: repeat 2X {Eminem singing} I never meant to give you mushrooms girl I never meant to bring you to my world Now you sitting in the corner crying And now it's my fault my fault Verse 1: I went to John's rave with Ron and Dave And met a new wave blonde babe with half of her head shaved A nurse aid who came to get l**d and tied up with first aid tape and r****d on the first date Susan -- an ex-h***** addict who just stopped usin who love b****e and alternative music (Whattup?) Told me she was goin back into usin again (Nah!)

"I ain't mean for you to eat the whole bag!" [G] Huh?! Chorus: 1st repeat Em says "I'm sorry!" at the end 2nd repeat same as original Chorus Verse 2: "Yo Sue!" [G] Get away from me, I don't know you Oh shoot, she's tripping.. [G] I need to go puke!! (Bleahh!)

That ain't no reason to start wiggin and spaz out She said, [G] Help me I think I'm havin a seisure! I said, "I'm high too b****, quit grabbin my t-shirt" (Let go!) "Would you calm down you're startin to scare me" She said, [G] I'm twenty-six years old and I'm not married I don't even have any kids and I can't cook (Hello!) I'm over here Sue, (hi) you're talkin to the plant, look! We need to get to a hospital 'fore it's too late Cause I never seen no-one eat as many shr**ms as you ate Chorus: 1st repeat Em says "Whoops!" after first line and "It was an accident!" at the end 2nd repeat same as original Chorus Verse 3: Susan (wait!) Where you goin? You better be careful [G] Leave me alone dad, I'm sick of gettin my hair pulled I'm not your dad, quit tryin to swallow your tongue Want some gum? Put down the scissors, 'fore you do somethin dumb I'll be right back just chill baby please? I gotta go find Dave he's the one who gave me these "John, where's Dave at before I bash you?" [J] He's in the bathroom; I think he's takin a crap dude! "Dave! Pull up your pants, we need an ambulance There's a girl upstairs talkin to plants choppin her hair off, and there's only two days left of Spring Break, how long do these things take to wear off?" [D] Well it depends on how may you had "I took three, she ate the other twenty-two c**s Now she's upstairs cryin out her eyeballs, drinkin Lysol" [D] She's gonna die dude "I know and it's my fault!" [D] My god!!! Chorus: 1st repeat Em says "I'm sorry!" after second line and "What do I do?" at the end 2nd repeat same as original Chorus My God, I'm so sorry! I'm so sorry! Susan please wake up! Please! Please wake up!! What are you doing?! You're not dead!! You're NOT dead! I know you're not dead! Oh my God! Susan wake up! Oh God... Sorry, I had to take out all the bad words and other stuff relating to drugs or this review couldn't be posted. P.S. Don’t retire Eminem!!!

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

To call Eminem hip-hop's Elvis is correct to a degree, but it's largely inaccurate. Certainly, Eminem was the first white rapper since the Beastie Boys to garner both sales and critical respect, but his impact exceeded this confining distinction. On sheer verbal skills, Eminem was one of the greatest MCs of his generation — rapid, fluid, dexterous, and unpredictable, as capable of pulling off long-form narrative as he was delivering a withering aside — and thanks to his mentor Dr. Dre,...
