Review of Eminem’s “Slim Shady” Album
This was the greatest and most important release to Eminem`s entertainment career that gave the real picture of his technical ability to his listeners. Released in 1999, he used slim shady as a lash out to whoever he felt like at any moment, and this is what he had always avoided doing in his career. This is the best a rapper of His type could do because it would have a great impact on his career.
This album was a masterpiece to the lovers of hip-hop, and the lyrics express very real raw emotion. The beats used on the album are almost comical rap with a deep aggressive mood, and this is a good reason as to why the album should be classified as a masterpiece.
Another part features how shady shunned everything from women to gay people. This is a skit where Ken Kaniff is trying to hit on him, and the particular line that illustrates this is when he mentions “gave girl herpes in exchange of syphilis”.
This album goes past rap though, and therefore it can be looked at as not rap. And it is greatly a presentation of some of the frustrations of a grown man, with a tired past, and suddenly want to be heart passing his thoughts to the hip-hop fans.
The Marshall Mathers LP
This is an album based on moral recidivism and recovery motivational rehab. The bad guy opener is a fantasy in which Mathers is kidnapped by Matthew Mitchell brother to Stan the titular stalker. Later you discover that is a metaphor on the last stanza. who is a Matthew was just acting out of his mere hostage to his tormented psyche. He is powered by the fear of becoming a laughing stock of rap and by losing his rap potential.
On his hit “so much better”, Eminem has never been one to lock down is the theme, and it has been illustrated since he has been so honest about since “Kim”. He wishes that his former lover and who has been cheating on him with Dr. Dre, Drake, and Lupe Fiasco would drop dead. In the track legacy, he sheds some insights into how he grew. He shares the story of his childhood and how he loved trickling piano keys.
The album ends with Eminem proclaiming his rap dominance, and he embraces his villainous side which he had introduced in the beginning.
