Slim Shady

„And when I’m gone, just carry on. Don’t mourn, rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice. Just know that I’m looking down on you smiling.“ A section of When I’m Gone by Eminem. My favorite song of the the rapper. Slim Shady was the most important music artist in my youth.

The headphones in my ears delivered my daily dose of Eminem’s lyrics into my brain. Supplied by my disc man in my baggy pants. Pants in which I could have easily transported a ghetto blaster. According to my idol.

Shady was never really gone, but it was quiet around him. I try to counter this and rejoice hearing the sound of his voice true to his introducing text. So let’s listen to my fav tracks: Forgot About Dre, The Way I Am and of course, When I’m Gone.
