Random Start: Eminem – “My Name Is”

While I’ve always been consumed by metal/hardcore/punk, when this song was released I had completely abandoned every other genre, including some of my east coast hip hop roots. I think it was because I was living in the panhandle of Florida at the time and everyone around me liked what was being put out by No Limit and Cash Money Records which soured me on the rap of that era. So as I was discovering Botch and DEP and still holding Coalesce so dear, Eminem’s career was budding, but I was taking music too seriously and found this song to be silly. Today, Eminem isn’t close to being my favorite MC, but you can catch me in debates arguing that he’s the best that’s ever lived.
