    Riggs Morales, The Source

    Date: March 1998

    One of the articles that started it all. In March of 1998, Riggs Morales formally introduced the world to Marshall Mathers via The Source's Unsigned Hype series. In an interesting turn of events, Eminem would become the sworn nemesis of the magazine (under different management) a few years later.

    Point blank, this ain’t your average cat. This Motor City kid is a one-of-a-kind talent and he’s about to blow past the competition, leaving many melted microphones in the dust.
