This is the first song off of Eminem’s Slim Shady EP, so it is pretty much the musical introduction to his Slim Shady character.
The subject matter here is what we’ve come to expect from Eminem, as this EP was inspired around the concept of the alter ego, but compared to Infinite the differences are night and day.
Here the Slim Shady ego has entered into his career but it starts out with a darker feel. This track did not make it into The Slim Shady LP. But the saying “I’m Low Down And I’m Shifty” is said throughout his career by him and his D12 members in other songs such as: Take The World With Me, Remember Me?, and Rap Game.
