Eminem has been hailed as among the greatest rappers of all time. Need proof? Well, while it’s a claim that’s open to debate, the man born Marshall Bruce Mathers III has, to his credit, come up with wordplay that’s so out there that many of his most complex rhymes and references fly over fans’ heads. That said, one sharp-eared listener has discovered a secret message in the star’s 1999 breakthrough track “My Name Is” – and it only underlines just how talented and special the rapper is.
Many hip hop fans and artists hail Eminem as one of the greatest wordsmiths ever to have worked in the genre. And throughout his more than 20-year recording career, the 45-year-old artist has certainly displayed a dizzying command of the English language. Just take the Missouri-born rap master’s effortless ability to work seemingly impossible-to-rhyme words into his verses.
