My name is – what? – Hey Lady!

So back when Slim Shady first came on the radio, I heard it playing from all over my Brooklyn neighborhood, up through my apartment window.

I liked the beat, but from a distance I mistook the nasally chorus (‘my name is – what – slim shady’ ) for a sample of Jerry Lewis’ Nutty Professor (or is it The Bellboy?), where he says “Hey Lady”! I liked that someone was sampling that and grew fond of the song.
