"My Name Is"

Em's 1999 debut single, "My Name Is," and its video were a shock to the system. The juxtaposition of the clip's off-the-wall visuals, Dr. Dre's new-millennium G-funk and a bleached-blond Em's twisted, irreverent humor was a left-field smash, and the archetype for Em's early 2000s sound. The single lifted Eminem's debut full-length, The Slim Shady LP, to triple-platinum status. All of the sudden Marshall Mathers was a star, and a lightning rod for critics from all corners.
