[vimeo 87703176 w=500 h=281]This weekend was a pretty important milestone in hip-hop...It was the 15th anniversary of Eminem's controversial 1999 album, The Slim Shady LP. Although this wasn't his first official album release, it was the album that put him on the map and made him into a worldwide sensation. It was his ability to write lyrics from the perspective of his alter-ego "Slim Shady" that allowed him to speak about an array of controversial topics and made it somewhat "acceptable" by mainstream society.Surrounding Em's 15th anniversary, our Vice President Ryan Ford, spoke with Revolt TV on Monday to discuss the album's importance, why it was such a big record and why it's been a mainstay in music.
