Many of you hardcore Eminem fans out there may already know this, but for those who don’t there’s a very clever message hidden in the rapper’s iconic hit.
Slim’s classic track was a smasher back in the good old days of the millennium year, but little did we know back then without the common use of the internet, there was actually a sneaky little message hidden inside.
We may have been completely oblivious to this hidden gem had it not been for the enlightening world of YouTube and the power to flip, reverse songs backwards.
Apparently, according to those who have had a mess around and nerdily played the track backwards, the lyrics in fact reveal quite a genius message.
Instead of playing:
My name is, my name is, my name is.
You can actually hear:
It’s Eminem, it’s Eminem, it’s Eminem, it’s slim.
Have a listen:
Such a sneakily good idea that had the potential to go for years without being noticed at all.
One you’ve had a little listen to this eerie backwards version, you’ll never be able to listen to the original in the same way again though.
What a legend.
