Eminem has been in the game a long, long time. His first released album came out back in 1996. Infinite is lesser known but is full of raw hits, produced by Web Entertainment. Web Entertainment also produced Em's more well known release, The Slim Shady LP, which was used to sell Dr. Dre and the Aftermath label. I thought it would be fun to go back in history and take a look at all the first songs on Eminem's albums. I'm not going to rate them or anything. Everything Slim puts out is gold in my opinion. We'll just go from Infinite to Music to be Murdered By. I'll skip over the intros to each album and only grab the first song of each album.
This song hits right at the feels. Proof put this song out right before his death. He's putting his heart into this good bye. Listen to the end. Those whispers. Man.
Eminem's single "Real Slim Shady" dropped TWENTY years ago. That's nuts. That's back when Marsh and I were really finding our music sound. Our golden years you could say. "Real Slim Shady" could be a daddy to a lot of these lyrical rap songs coming today. Poppa Shady!
