THE BOOK

EMINEM: THE WAY I AM

Chart topping and headline making rap artist Eminem shares his private reflections, drawings, handwritten lyrics, and photographs in his New York Times bestseller The Way I Am.

Fiercely intelligent, relentlessly provocative, and prodigiously gifted, Eminem is known as much for his enigmatic persona as for being the fastest-selling rap artist and the first rapper to ever win an Oscar. Everyone wants to know what Eminem is really like-after the curtains go down. In The Way I Am, Eminem writes candidly, about how he sees the world. About family and friends; about hip-hop and rap battles and his searing rhymes; about the conflicts and challenges that have made him who he is today.

Illustrated with more than 200 full color and black and white photographs, including family snapshots and personal Polaroids, it is a visual self portrait that spans the rapper’s entire life and career, from his early childhood in Missouri to the basement home studio he records in today, from Detroit’s famous Hip Hop Shop to sold-out arenas around the globe. Readers who have wondered at Em’s intricate, eye opening rhyme patterns can also see, first hand, the way his mind works in dozens of reproductions of his original lyric sheets, written in pen, on hotel stationary, on whatever scrap of paper was at hand. These lyric sheets, published for the first time here, show uncut genius at work. Taking readers deep inside his creative process, Eminem reckons with the way that chaos and controversy have fueled his music and helped to give birth to some of his most famous songs (including “Stan,” “Without Me,” and “Lose Yourself”).

Providing a personal tour of Eminem’s creative process, The Way I Am has been hailed as “fascinating,” “compelling,” and “candid.”

Eminem is one of the world’s best-selling music artists and is the best-selling artist of the 2000s. He has been listed and ranked as one of the greatest artists of all time by many magazines, including Rolling Stone magazine which ranked him 82nd on its list of The 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

In the United States, he has sold 49.1 million albums and 42 million tracks.

After releasing his independent debut album Infinite in August 1996, Eminem rose to mainstream popularity with the release of his February 1999 album The Slim Shady LP. The LP also earned Eminem his first Grammy Award for Best Rap Album. His next two records The Marshall Mathers LP, and The Eminem Show, also won Best Rap Album Grammy Awards, making Eminem the first artist to win Best Rap Album for three consecutive LPs. This was followed by another studio release in November 2004 titled Encore. Eminem then went on hiatus after touring in 2005. He released his fifth album Relapse in May 2009.

ISN’T IT IRONIC: MAURIZIO CATTELAN ON HIS NEW CAPSULE SWEATSHIRT COLLECTION WITH MSGM

The Milanese fashion pack tends to migrate on Saturday nights to Plastic, the popular club where snazzily dressed regulars go to see what other people are doing and wearing. It was here that the artist and sometime Milan resident Maurizio Cattelan spotted the flamboyant, kitschy prints and New Wave style of MSGM, the irreverent Italian fashion upstart that has become a magnet for a new generation of trend-happy shoppers.

This month, Massimo Giorgetti, the label’s energetic founder has collaborated with Toilet Paper, the audacious art magazine begun by Cattelan and photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari, to create a lineup of bold unisex summer sweatshirts destined for a festa near you. Given carte blanche to use the irreverent magazine’s visual archive as he wished, Giorgetti picked ten charged images to appear on the cult label’s crewnecks rendered in acid colors and ice cream hues. His cheery and cheeky designs recall Italy’s high energy glory days and buzzy collections from the likes of Fiorucci, despite the designer’s reluctance to revisit decades past. “I don’t like nostalgia,” says Giorgetti. “I prefer irony.”
