When his family was living in Detroit, their home was in a majorly black neighborhood, and thus Eminem was also victim to racial beatings during that time.
Before he discovered hip-hop, he was first very passionate about comic books and storytelling. He dropped out of Lincoln High school at 17 years old, and worked at various jobs to help pay the bills.
His mother would often throw him out of the house, and neglect him. Whenever she went to play Bingo, Eminem would turn up his stereo and start writing songs.
Eminem started performing at rap battles with his friend Mike Ruby when he was only 14. Later on, as his reputation grew, he was recruited by several rap groups, including New Jacks, Soul Intent, and D12.
His first solo album, ‘Infinite’, was released in 1996, and was a failure; majorly due to Eminem’s style, and feelings people had towards it at that time. He was told that his style was not cut out for hip hop, and that only motivated him to keep on writing more rhymes.
In 1997, he was spotted by Dr. Dre, the founder of Aftermath entertainment, and began working with him. Two years later, The Slim Shady LP was released and went Platinum.
Since then, Eminem has released multiple albums and sold over 40 million copies in the US alone. He’s collaborated with a wide number of artists and even starred in a movie based on his story.
Today, Eminem is considered to be one of the best, if not the best, rappers of all time. He’s worked with just about every musician you can think of, including the likes of Ed Sheeran, 50 Cent, Lil Wayne, Rihanna, Drake, and more.
