blame it on JES7 February 23, 2014

On this day, Feb. 23rd, 1999, exactly fifteen years ago, Eminem released his debut album, The Slim Shady LP to the World. The album was a follow up of sorts to his 1997 EP of the same name, employing his doppelganger who would become to be known as the infamous Slim Shady.

The album, which was released on Aftermath/Interscope would live on to become the most loved/hated LP in the “horrorcore” genre, pleasing rap nerds and infuriating conservatives around the world. At the same time, The Slim Shady LP would also go on to serve as the first official introduction of long time friend, associate and collaborator Royce Da 5′ 9″ to mainstream America and putting the city of Detroit formally on the map.

Let’s hear your thoughts/opinions on how the album impacted and influenced you down below, and what your favorite joint(s) off the LP are. I’ve included my personal favorite as well. Huge congrats to Em!
