Throwback Thursday: Eminem (1996 – 2002)
After dropping “Survival” from the Call of Duty: Ghosts soundtrack, Eminem takes centre-stage for this week’s Throwback Thursday.
We have selected five songs from his legendary career to look back on.
The first track of our five is from his 1996 album “Infinite“, titled “313“. This track features fellow underground Detroit rapper Eye-Kyu and both he and Eminem show off their lyrical skills. This track (as-was the entire album) was produced by D12 member Mr. Porter.
Track two is “Role Model” from his 1999 album “The Slim Shady LP“. The track was co-produced by Eminem’s mentor Dr. Dre and Mel-Man.
The third track from our selection is from a year after “Role Model“. “Remember Me?” appeared on Eminem’s 2000 album “The Marshall Mathers LP“. Eminem is accompanied by RBX and Onyx rapper Sticky Fingaz. Once again, the track was co-produced by Dr. Dre and Mel-Man.
Track four is from Eminem’s 2002 album “The Eminem Show“, titled “White America“. Slim Shady takes the credit for producing this track.
The final track from our selection is essentially the title track for the soundtrack of the movie “8 Mile” (“Music from and Inspired by the Motion Picture 8 Mile“). Again, Marshall Mathers takes credit for the production of the track.
Eminem’s music is still available on Amazon.
