This sweet graphic tee is for the rapper Eminem and his third studio album The Marshall Mathers LP, which was named after Eminem himself, as the rapper's birth name was Marshall Bruce Mathers III. Eminem has been widely recognized as one of the greatest musical artists of all time, with musicians spanning all genres citing him as an influence. He's credited with popularizing hip hop in middle America and his lyrics focus on the struggles he's faced, including an unstable childhood, poverty, drug addiction, and familial issues. Eminem's big break came when fellow rapper and record producer, Dr. Dre, heard his EP and signed him for a record deal with Aftermath Entertainment. His first album after being recruited by Dr. Dre, The Slim Shady LP, was a huge hit and quickly propelled the artist into the mainstream.

The Marshall Mathers LP was a strong follow up to The Slim Shady LP. The album received praise for its transgressive lyrics and incorporation of satire. The Marshall Mathers LP, like most of Eminem's work, also received backlash for being too violent and vulgar. Regardless of these critiques, hip hop fans and music critics saw through the shock value to the emotional depth and artistry of the tracks. Eminem put out some of his most well known works on this album, including "The Real Slim Shady," "Stan," and "Kim."

The Marshall Mathers LP wound up being named the best album of 2000 by Rolling Stone. It also won the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album, and was nominated for Album of the Year. Retrospectively, the release has been continuously praised for its ongoing impact on modern artists. In 2022, Rolling Stone ranked the album 25 on their list of The 200 Greatest Rap Albums of All Time and several publications have listed it among the best albums of the decade.
