Wow, it’s been 15 years since ‘The Eminem Show‘ came out -AND- guess what? There’s a cassette re-issue of the record coming out!!! AMAZING! Not only that, but also handwritten annotations of its liner notes. Eminem went on to reveal that the album was heavily inspired by Jim Carrey’s 1998 film, The Truman Show, hence saying “Jim Carrey wrote my album”.
"The concept 4 the Eminem show was inspired by Truman show… I felt like I was always being watched…Basically Jim Carey wrote my album"
