Eminem - The Marshall Mathers LP / The Slim Shady LP
Technically Infinite is his debut, but The Slim Shady LP was his first on a major label and introduced the world to arguably the greatest rapper of all time. It was raw and showcased Eminem’s amazing wordplay, creative rhyme patterns and storytelling ability. He refined everything and thus, stepped it up a notch, for The Marshall Mathers LP. It features some of Eminem’s biggest songs, “The Real Slim Shady,” “The Way I Am” and “Stan.” It’s the second highest-selling hip hop album in history, and Shady grabbed two more Grammys for his effort. The album helped establish him as one the biggest artists in, not just hip hop, but music.
