**TRIGGER WARNING** The following episode contains serious and extreme adult themes such as Sexual References, Violence, Suicide, Self Harm, Drug References and Coarse Language. Listener discretion is strongly advised.

In this highly controversial and action packed episode we jump back into the Eminem story right from where we left off as Eminem first releases the Slim Shady LP, we see the death of D-12 member Bugz, Eminem is taken to court over his controversial songs by Kim, Debbie and his childhood bully and he faces extreme backlash and censorship from activist groups, offended by Eminem's no filter style lyrics. Eminem also releases the Marshall Mathers LP and Devils Night with D-12, Shady Records is established, Eminem battles with the life of fame, drugs and booze and his relationship with Kim and Eminem ends up in court on two counts for assaulting a bouncer that was caught kissing Kim and attacking Insane Clown Posse's Road Manager.

We also delve into Eminem's earliest feuds with Everlast and The Insane Clown Posse, the tragic night where Kim attempted to take her own life and the stories behind the biggest and best songs from his 2nd and 3rd studio albums such as The Real Slim Shady, The Way I Am, My Name Is, Braindead, Stan, Role Model and many more.

All this and much more in this action packed episode. Enjoy.
