The Real Slim Shady

The Real Slim Shady by Eminem was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, July 8, 2000 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. We were introduced to Eminem through his "Slim Shady" character, which was one of his alter egos along with Eminem and Marshall Mathers (his real name). Eminem was exhausted by the time they came up with this song. Before they came up with the beat, he was ready to leave the album as it was and use "The Way I Am" as the first single. His record company wasn't about to let that happen. Eminem performed this at the 2000 MTV Video Music awards, in a very memorable performance. Trailed by a legion of lookalikes, Eminem entered from outside Radio City Music Hall and performed the song on the way in. This won a Grammy in 2001 for Best Rap Solo Performance. The album Marshall Mathers LP also won for Best Rap Album. This was Eminem's first #1 hit in the UK, where early on, he was far more popular than he was in his home country.
