#13. Eminem (STRESS, 1998)


Issue: 1998
Art Direction: Jus Ske

Oft overlooked underground pub, STRESS dressed Em up as Clockwork Orange's demented protagonist, Alex, for one of his earliest covers. The shoot not only highlighted Shady's crazy side, it also served as an ill subliminal to rival white rapper Cage, who was then best known for his Clockwork-sampling underground record "Agent Orange." The flick was so nice that it got used twice, later turning up on a Spin cover as well.
