What a way to introduce yourself to the world. Well I guess from the opening line we should have know exactly what was to come from Eminem aka Slim Shady aka Marshall Matthers.
Eminem has had a traumatic childhood which is very apparent in EVERY song he has recorded; if you don't know about the Dr Dre Protege you need to lift that rock of your head asap and get to know. Sometimes when you have so much talent penned-up its hard to get it out of your head if you don't have the right medium, it sometimes manifest and could drives you crazy, I feel like that is exactly what happened to Eminem. there's so much that can be said about Marshall but I'll let you take it all in below.
