Eminem Drops 'The Slim Shady LP' Expanded Version With Rarely Heard Freestyles & A Capellas

The album that sky-rocketed his career is now complete with rare releases for the ultimate Slim Shady fan.

"Hi! My name is... Hi! My name is... Hi! My name is..."

In 1997, a platinum blonde kid rattled the hip-hop community with his dark humor and graphic storytelling in a way that hadn't been heard before. Eminem, a.k.a. Slim Shady, released his major label debut The Slim Shady LP. The album touched on controversial subjects like mental instability, poverty, family issues, abuse, and overall, Eminem spoke candidly throughout it. In celebration of its 20th anniversary, Eminem has released The Slim Shady LP Expanded Edition with rarely heard freestyles and a capellas.

Throughout the project, the Detroit MC's sadistic, violent alter ego Slim Shady spoke freely regarding his childhood and his anger, and audiences were not only horrified, but excited to hear the dark humor surrounding it all. In the late '90s when the majority of rap relied on flashy lifestyles and radio rotation, Eminem went against the grain and found an audience that not only appreciated his rhymes, but his background as well.
