When "My Name Is" dropped he seemed like a definite one hit wonder. I bought the album off the strength of "Guilty Conscience". After hearing it I knew he was gonna be around for a long time

I knew he was nice once I heard that and I was in 6th grade. I’m like this dude hard. But he was white and I ain’t never seen nothing like it. Boy been cold. Marshall Mathers LP. Ridiculous rappin.

It is though. I don't think it aged well but that album, despite coming from Dwighty still gets play from me and got me through some tough times. Idk why they said he sounded like Nas in Infinite but that underground LP release did have an Illmatic feel to it but can't come anywhere near as close to the subject matter, complexity, lyrics, etc. that Illmatic had but maybe the cadence was up there since he was rapping multisyllabic bars, e.g. when he said "I'm gambling Christmas to financially risk this" on Never Too Far off that album. But he did say he was inspired by Big L and 'L, Mase and nem a*sociated with D.I.T.C. and the Children of the Corn respectively were always rapping multis. Just my take...

All yall n*ggas downing infinite are fu*king tripping I stumbled on this jewel 4 years ago, this is A time before em started that vulgar angry crazy white boy sh*t, this is before the shock value... People hated because they said he sounded like everyone else at the time which is bullsh*t, production was spot tf on easy smooth a*s beats that put you in A mood and drum up that 90s nostalgia I hold this album in high regard this sh*t is flat out my fave take a listen to these tracks this sh*t go and I have these right here on my Main playlist, spend plenty days chiefing and riding to this sh*t if you don't feel none of that you got caca in ya fu*king ears.
