Infinite is an album by hip-hop artist Eminem, made and produced with help from
The Bass Brothers and fellow D12 member Kon Artis (Denaun, who features on Maxine)
in 1996. Infinite was only made on cassette and vinyl. Only 400 copies were made.
Eminem sold these tapes out of the trunk of his car in Detroit. The album is
quite rare and cannot be found in stores, though compact disc copies have been
made and can be constantly found on sites such as eBay claimed to be the real
thing. The song "Backstabber" is a re-cut version of a song called "F*ckin'
Backstabber", which is featured on a demo tape by Soul Intent.

The album received mixed critical reviews and was met with derision from within the local hip-hop community, earning Eminem unfavourable accusations of copying other rappers' styles, particularly Nas and AZ. "Obviously, I was young and influenced by other artists, and I got a lot of feedback saying that I sounded like Nas and AZ," he admitted. "'Infinite' was me trying to figure out how I wanted my rap style to be, how I wanted to sound on the mic and present myself," he recalls. "It was a growing stage. I felt like Infinite was like a demo that just got pressed up".
