Eminem / Slim Shady
Eminem developed Slim Shady as a more extreme version of his own personality – and as a way of justifying some of his more offensive and violent raps. "Slim Shady is just the evil thoughts that come into my head, things I shouldn't be thinking about,” he explained on his website. “Not to be gimmicky, but people should be able to determine when I'm serious and when I'm messing around. That's why a lot of my songs are funny. I got [sic] a warped sense of humor, I guess." —Jeff Royer
