The secret life of Slim Shady
Eminem came on the scene as a controversial lyrical madman, rapping about everything from being from a broken home on the wrong side of the train tracks in Detroit to becoming a rock star that the world loved to hate.
Now, he’s a proverbial “Rap God,” a massively successful entrepreneur mogul, and one of the most influential artists of the century. Though wildly successful, he’s maintained his “F*** society” attitude since day one, and continues to sign artists to his label based on skill, work ethic, and style: as opposed to regurgitating the same cookie cutter, one-hit-wonder, mumbling robot throat artists that the big labels love so much. Eminem does it all. He’s an ever expanding entrepreneur, a veritable rain man when it comes to A&R, and, of course, a music producer and vividly descriptive, lyrical rapper.
