“My Name Is”
Eminem stepped onto the mainstream scene with this song that contained clever and honest rhymes and a willingness to go after anyone in the industry. This video helped in skyrocketing the rapper’s career and also created an iconic visual representation for our first memories of Em. Although it was released in 1999, anyone in that era most likely can sing along to at least the hook of this song if not engaging in a full word for word rendition of the song.
