[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Eminem[/lastfm] has been a mainstay in hip-hop ever since he exploded onto the scene with his 1999 single “My Name Is.”
The bleach blonde cutie with Detroit roots and a edge sharper than a knife gained instant success for his raw talent, outside-the-box style and in-your-face lyrics.
Since then, he’s proved to be the man to beat when it comes to rap, but also the man to partner with. His collaborations with Dido and Rihanna have garnered the sort of success that rappers struggle with when it comes to a mainstream pop audience.
Still, his personal demons and private drama have inspired some of the greatest hip-hop songs of the past decade with music videos that encapsulate the songs meanings in both poignant and oftentimes funny ways making it hard to narrow down exactly what Eminem’s best music video is.
Is it possible to even choose which video best represents The Real Slim Shady or will being confronted with this choice force you to Lose Yourself?
