Eminem became famous 22 years ago following the release of his single "My Name Is". The song, which was released on January 25, 1999, reached the top ten charts in countries such as the United Kingdom, Ireland and New Zealand.
Although Mathers did release Infinite in 1996, the album was a commercial failure. According to the rapper, it only sold around 70 copies. "Maybe even less."
"My Name Is" was the first Eminem song to "blow up", so to speak. It was at this stage that he transitioned from being an underground hip hop artist to a high-profile celebrity.
The song was released about a month before his album "The Slim Shady LP", which further propelled his rise to fame.
