The Slim Shady LP is the second studio album and the major-label debut by American rapper Eminem, released on February 23, 1999, under Interscope Records and Dr. Dre's Aftermath Entertainment. Recorded at Studio 8 in Ferndale, Michigan following Eminem's recruitment by Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, the album features production from Dr. Dre, the Bass Brothers and Eminem himself. The majority of the record's lyrical content is written from the perspective of the rapper's alter ego Slim Shady, whom the rapper created on the Slim Shady EP, in 1997.

The album was met with both critical and commercial success; critics praised Eminem for his unique lyrical style, and the record debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 chart. The first ooficial single, "My Name Is", peaked at #36 on the Billboard Hot 100. The Slim Shady went on to be certified quadruple-platinum by the Recording Industry Association. It won a Grammy Award for Best Rap Album in 2000. The Slim Shady LP turned Eminem from an underground rapper into a high-profile celebrity. Interscope Records awarded him with his own record label, Shady Records, and he embarked on an extensive touring schedule to promote the album. He also became a highly controversial figure due to his lyrical content, which some perceived to be misogynistic and a negative influence on American youth.
