Slim Shady, is the titular main protagonist of Shady, along with Marshall, part of Project Shady.
Although much is unknown about Shady's childhood, it's known that Slim had a troubled family life, very similar to Marshall's. Becoming friends since they were kids, the two bonded due to being in similar situations.
Teenage Years Edit
In his teenage years, Slim had few friends other than Marshall, Proof and Marshall's future wife Kim Scott. The two meeting when Slim was seen performing LL Cool J’s “I’m Bad” standing on a table shirtless. During this time him, Marshall and Proof soon began to start freestyle battling each other with the ambitions to one day become famous rappers. Slim's teenage years also marked the beginning of his criminal record, although not organized, Slim's instinctual and spontaneous personality, led to many run ins with the police. One of which, ended with Shady showing up with Kim and her sister Dawn needing to stay with Marshall and his mom for safety.
Eminɘm and Soul Intent Edit
Before long Shady and Marshall started a rap duo, dubbed Eminem, with help from Proof, fellow rapper Chaos Kid and music producers Jeff & Mark Bass. During this time, in Shady's criminal spree he ran into what would later become his close friend and partner in crime, the equally as volatile, Royce da 5'9", who soon collaborated with Eminem and their music. Although the group were making some leeway, there was a small rift in the group with Marshall wanting to focus more on rap battles and Shady wanting to focus more on producing.
Record Deal and Criminal Record Edit
Things began to look up for the duo however as, during a tour with Outsiderz, Marshall entered a rap battle which caught the attention of record label. after hearing their album Infinite and The Slim Shady EP, the new talent put behind them put Marshall and Slim in an excellent position. With the proper talent and budget put behind them the two released The Slim Shady LP to critical and commercial success. Although Marshall was modest with his earnings, Slim was the complete opposite. First being assigned his own bodyguard, Big Naz, Shady continued to go ahead with purchasing illegal weapons, drugs and many other dumb investments. Big Naz describes his experiences as like baby sitting a child, who just had a handful full of candy. At one point Big Naz even reveals, that he had to lend money to Shady multiple times, and never received reimbursement, as well as providing Shady with chauffeur services. After Marshall, was brought up on charges for his shooting, Eminem was officially ended by their record label who refused, to resign Marshall to the label. Without Marshall Slim tried his best at continuously making music, with mediocre results. Before long his criminal career with Royce took over. Ditching Big Naz, Slim and Royce da 5'9", now officially Bad Meets Evil, began their terrorization venture. For years Marshall had heard nothing from Shady other than his officially being dropped from their label as well. Little did Marshall now things were just at the calm before the storm.
