These Eminem Innovations Highlight the Megastar's Massive Influence on Rap

— December 5, 2012 — Naughty
In the year 2000, Marshall Mathers asked the real Slim Shady to stand up, and viewing this collection of Eminem innovations 12 years later, it's still a task that is easier said than done.

These Eminem innovations highlight the 40-year-old MC's far-reaching influence in the world of pop culture, including his work with disparate creative talents like vaunted celebrity photographers Steve Double and Mike Schreiber, former adult film star Sasha Grey and world-renown tattoo artist Mister Cartoon.

One of the most fascinating aspects of this collection of Eminem innovations is that when the MC burst onto the scene with his debut the Slim Shady LP in February of 1999, few people believed the world would accept a white rapper with a trailer-park background that spoke in black cadences. His ability to transcend racial, social and cultural barriers is part of the reason these Eminem innovations are so special -- his talent and unique ability conquered all and inspired millions.
