I'm not gonna be able to top on My Name Is
Overzealous fans and record executives expected him to top the success of his hit single “My Name Is” (which he ironically was able to do with his lead single “The Real Slim Shady” and many more after that)
Eminem even went as far as saying he hated “My Name Is”, because it was the song most people knew him for, even though it wasn’t a good representation of him as an artist. He told the media that his next album The Marshall Mathers LP, which this song came off, wasn’t going to be like that.
“One thing I won’t do is put out another song like ‘My Name Is’. I can’t stand that fucking song. This album is rawer. Fans looking for bubblegum rap aren’t going to get it here.”
