Eminem chronology


Slim Shady EP (1997)

Infinite is the debut studio album by American rapper Eminem, released on November 12 1996 by Web Entertainment. While working a minimum-wage job at a restaurant in Detroit, Eminem was encouraged by others to record an album. It was recorded at the Bass Brothers' studio, known as the Bassmint. The album was produced in its entirety by Mr. Porter, and it features appearances from Mr. Porter, Thyme, Eye-Kyu and 3. 

Eminem purposely made the songs to be radio-friendly in hopes of getting on the air on Detroit radio stations. Subjects covered in Infinite include his struggles with raising his newborn daughter while on limited funds, and his strong desire to become rich. 

Infinite sold only about 1000 copies, and received mixed reviews, which mainly criticised the album's production but praised Eminem's lyrical ability. After its release, his personal problems and substance abuse resulted in an unsuccessful suicide attempt. Although Eminem's future albums would prove far more successful, the rapper still gained some recognition for his debut effort.
