Eminem exploded onto the scene in the late '90s with both middle fingers raised high. He has always been provocateur at heart, and in more ways than one. Beyond his critiques of mass media and hip hop culture, he has always been eager to share his most fucked-up urges, to shine a light on the most hellish recesses of his psyche. As he rapped on "Cleaning Out My Closet," parents raised "picket signs for [his] wicked rhymes," horrified that his sick mind would corrupt their children. Indeed, that is his very appeal -- his music leaves a powerful impression upon the listener.
