Have you ever listened to the Slim Shady EP?
No, not the Slim Shady LP. I mean Eminems former 10 tracks EP. If you havent, you will be able to listen to it and to download the full EP on the following website:
The Slim Shady EP is indeed a dope album: major hip hop fans wont be disappointed by Eminems brilliant debut work.
The intro leads you into a world of horrorcore: Eminem gets theatened by the devilish character of Slim Shady who asks him to look into the mirror. A terrorized Eminem is confronted to the ill character who opened the doors to his fame.
Be ready for some great entertainment.
Low Down Dirty is a well made description of Slim Shadys dirty world of sex, drugs and violence. The attentive listener will immediatly understand that Slim Shady represents Eminems dark side. In fact, Slim Shady is to Eminem what Mr Hyde is to Dr Jekyll, as the lyrics point it out:
I’m Dr. Hyde and Mr. Jekyll, disrespectful
Hearing voices in my head while these whispers echo
“Murder Murder Redrum”
If you have watched movies like The Exorcist and Amityville, you will certainly enjoy Eminems introduction into Slim Shadys demonic world.
You will also enjoy Eminems ill rhymes and his well made wordplays.
Murder Murder- which was, by the way, praised by the Source Magazine- is one of the best songs of the EP. Dont miss it.
Tupac is followed by Swifty in the chorus, both artists combined give a particularly interesting dimension to the song. The whole song is great gangsta rap where Eminem appears (you guessed it right) as a bad thug.
Many people focus an interest on Eminems best known and most played songs. But it is worth taking a look at his underground work. Major Eminem fans and real hip hop lovers will be amazed by the great quality of Eminems earlier Slim Shady EP. My advice: if you havent done it yet, check it out!
