It’s been 20 years since Eminem burst on the scene with his debut studio album Infinite in 1996, and to celebrate its anniversary he shared a special remastered version of the title track today (November 18th).

“Infinite (F.B.T. Remix)” is available to download and stream. It features a slower delivery than the faster meter that would help Eminem rise to fame, but the early glimpse of the future hip-hop star reveals what he would become thanks to his emphasis on particular consonants as well as the track’s simmering anger.
Eminem also released a short behind-the-scenes film that features never before seen footage from the early 1990s. Titled “Partners In Rhyme: The True Story of Infinite,” the video features interviews with the Bass Brothers, who discovered Eminem rapping on the radio during an open mic night and invited him into their 8 Mile studio, as well as Eminem himself. The Detroit producers discuss relying on their “8 Mile style” to record Eminem, which meant getting creative with their limited (and often broken) resources.
