JDIZZY's 365 # 266: The Way I Am

The Way I Am - Eminem (2000)

Radio did play this jam Marshall, and basically everything you have produced since. It also marked quite a change. Before this track, you were silly little Slim Shady, spouting nonsense and non sequiturs like a Hip-Hop Monty Python. However,with this classic (and most of the other ones from The Marshall Mathers LP) you became the first singer/songwriter of rap. Today's track reads like a journal entry into your psyche. And I'll never forget that you took up for Marilyn Manson in this song, something no one else of your caliber had the balls to do. So I toast you Mr. Mathers, and what you have brought to the game:Picasso's Blue Period set to beats.
