Eminem Biography




Eminem is easily the most enigmatic figure in popular music today.

Brazenly honest, deeply troubled, allegedly homophobic and misogynistic

yet undeniably gifted and entertaining, the Detroit-based rapper has

defied his detractors again and again, selling millions of records,

securing credibility as a white artist in a predominantly African

American genre, and achieving longevity in a notoriously fickle

industry. Hailed as a genius for an endless array of skills from writing

and rapping to acting and producing, Eminem has successfully stamped his

distinct impression on the world.


Born Marshall Mathers on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri,

Eminem moved to a Detroit housing project at the age of 12, when he

began his hip-hop journey. In the early С90s, Eminem battled other MCs

on open-mike nights. He impressed Paul Rosenberg, who eventually became

his manager. In 1995, Eminem released his first single with the group

Soul Intent. The recording process introduced Eminem to another young

rapper, Proof, who asked Eminem to join his six-member crew D12. The

group would serve as a surrogate family for Eminem, as each rapper

supported each other while working together - a situation that would

remain in place even after Eminem achieved massive success.


Eminem released a solo debut, Infinite, in 1996; however, it did little

to further his career. Meanwhile, Eminem`s personal life was embroiled

in turmoil. He and his girlfriend, Kim, separated. She denied Eminem

visitation of their daughter, Hailie Jade. His financial situation also

deteriorated, leaving him no choice but to move in with his mother,

Debbie. Their volatile relationship fueled Eminem`s writing; in fact, he

would accuse her in his songs of drug abuse and physical abuse, which

would later prompt a lawsuit brought by Debbie in retaliation.


Hitting rock bottom in 1997, Eminem made a radical move. He created an

alter ego, Slim Shady, and self-produced a demo called The Slim Shady

EP. A departure from his previous work, The Slim Shady EP would

eventually become his ticket to stardom. After placing second in a Rap

Olympics battle in Los Angeles, Interscope label president Jimmy Iovine

brought Eminem to the attention of Dr. Dre. Dre was impressed enough

with Eminem`s lyrical prowess that he agreed to produce his first album,

1999`s Slim Shady LP. While Eminem`s luck changed professionally, his

personal life seemed to be straightening out as well. He reconciled with

Kim, and the two married. The marriage, however, was troubled from the



With the infectious lead single 'My Name Is,' Eminem`s album created a

rap revolution. In spite of or perhaps because of his skin color, Eminem

became the most-talked about figure in the industry. The record went

triple platinum. As fans gobbled up his stinging, hilarious raps, laced

with violence, sexism and homophobia, critics were torn. They could not
