19 years ago today, @Eminem released his 2nd album The Slim Shady LP under Aftermath Entertainment as well as @Interscope & Web Entertainment. Produced by his mentor @DrDre & his Day 1 collaborators the Bass Brothers, the majority of the lyrical content on here was written from the perspective of Em’s alter ego Slim Shady & contains cartoonish over-the-top depictions of violence

19 years ago today, former Stetsasonic member @DJPrincePaul released his 2nd album A Prince Among Thieves under @TommyBoyEntertainment & @WBR. Self-produced, it’s a concept album follows the story of an aspiring young MC named Tariq (played by Breezly Brewin’), who needs to collect money to record a demo tape before a meeting with Wu-Tang Clan de facto leader @RZA. The story follows a desperate Tariq, who quits his low-paying job & turns to his friend True (played by Big Sha), who introduces him to drug dealing. The 2 make their way through the drug world, a police ambush, jail & then a deadly showdown. One of the greatest concept albums ever made right here
