The popular rapper from the start had a problematic childhood and spent it moving from Kansas City to Detroit. When he was 12, he finally settled in on the Eastside of Detroit. He went there in the Lincoln High School in Warren, Michigan for three years, from 1986 to 1989.
He showed an interest in rap music very early in his life. At just 4 years old he started to rhyme, and at school, he participated in rap battles. It was his only pleasure in school. As a teenager, at 14, he begins to think about his rap career, and at the age of 17 begins to rap under the name M&M which will later develop into Eminem.
At the beginning of his career, he was rejected by many of his colleagues because he is white. It is a moment in Eminem’s career that fueled the anger that was later heard and felt in his music, lyrics, and performances across America. When he dropped out of ninth grade for the third time, he dropped out of school.
Although he left school, aware of his influence in the media, he never advised his young fans to do the same but emphasized the importance of education and training in schools. After leaving the school he begins to actively participate in rap battles and appear in radio shows.
The first album Eminem released was called Infinite and sold over a thousand and it was the first step towards his success in the music industry. On December 25th, 1995 his daughter, Hailie Jade Scott was born.
Time passed and Eminem became increasingly known in the rap underground and released The Slim Shady EP shortly after. Unpaid and in dire straits, he enrolled in the 1997 Rep Olympics in Los Angeles to win the $ 1,500 prize. He reached the finals where he lost and was so enraged that he did not notice that he was spotted by famous producers in the music industry at the Olympics.
Dr. Dre is a producer who listened to Eminem’s demo and decided to find him and make music together. They made together Eminem’s second album and called it Marshall Mathers LP. With this album, they won three Grammy Awards and got the nomination for the Album of the year. The album Marshall Mathers LP was sold more than 8 million copies in the United States.
At the moment he has a huge mansion with tennis courts, a guest house, and parking for 12 cars in Rochester Hills, which is worth $2 million. He is the owner of one more home in Clinton Township.
”I say what I want to say and do what I want to do. There is no in-between. People will either love you for it or hate you for it.”
