Throwback Thursday!

This week marked 17 years since the release of Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP (yes, 17 whole years have passed!) so there’s nothing else to do but remember one of the album’s classics.

Even though Stan would be the obvious hit of the record with The Real Slim Shady following suit, I’ve always found The Way I Am to be more special. Touching on the drawbacks of fame in the ever-witty yet angry ‘Eminem way’, the track sets the tone for the album’s overall angst and darkness.

“‘Cause I am, whatever you say I am
If I wasn’t, then why would I say I am?”
