Eminem 'The Slim Shady LP' (Cassette)

Eminem The Slim Shady LP Fat Beats Platinum Plaque

It's been years since I listened to Eminem's 'The Slim Shady LP,' so I won't pretend I was ever his biggest fan, but even 18 years later (today), it's obvious he is a top-tier lyricist. Not quite as digestible these days, but very few artists would want to stand toe to toe and see what'd happen next. Am I wrong? The photo - excuse the quality - I took at Fat Beats' old warehouse a decade or so ago. They were early on his original EP and were sent a plaque to commemorate the multi-platinum sales of the LP. Last year, Aftermath reissued a cassette version of the album on a purple tape; you can order it HERE - I'm sure it'll be a collectible (read: valuable) one day soon.
