Turning Point: The Moment Your Favorite Artist Became a Superstar
Eminem enjoyed instant success on his multiplatinum-selling Aftermath Records debut, TheSlim Shady LP, but there were still those who were on the fence about the talents of the Detroit MC. Not everyone bought into the sometimes gimmicky raps and saw Em’s rise as a consequence of his race and signing with Dr. Dre. By his sophomore album in 2000, those attitudes changed. The Marshall Matters LP marked Em’s arrival as a true superstar (a controversial one at that) and put him on a path to hip hop immortality.
