Eminem Mercilessly Pranks Fans With Announcement of ‘Even More Infinite’ Version of 1996 Debut Album

Infinite, released as Em’s debut in 1996, is not available on major streaming services, at least not aside from the project’s title track. While the album has its enthusiastic appreciators among dedicated Em fans, Em himself sees it as more of a documented example of an artist still early in the process of finding their voice.

Speaking with Lisa Robinson Vanity Fair back in 2004, Em, then fresh off Encore, recalled how “crushing” it was for people to compare how he sounded at the time to other artists, including Nas and AZ.

“I reached a point where I stopped caring what people thought about me,” Em said of how the initial response to Infinite changed him moving forward. “And the second I stopped caring, people started caring about me.”
