One thing I like about Eminem is he is not afraid to disclose the truth of what he is going through in life. He was going through many tough period in life and turned it into success instead when he make it big with his music and songs. I believe all his songs are based on his life experiences through good and bad time.
Marshall Bruce Mathers III (known by his primary stage name “Eminem”, or by his alter ego “Slim Shady”), is a multi-platinum rapper, record producer and actor. Eminem quickly gained popularity in 1999 with his major-label debut album The Slim Shady LP, which won a Grammy Award for Best Rap Album. The following album, The Marshall Mathers LP, became the fastest-selling hip hop album in history. It brought Eminem increased popularity, including his own record label, Shady Records, and brought his group project D12 to mainstream recognition.D12 was formed before Eminem achieved solo success but many critics think that Eminem was the lead singer of the band D12 inspiring the song My Band.
The Marshall Mathers LP and his third album, The Eminem Show also won Grammy Awards, making Eminem the first artist to win Best Rap Album for three consecutive LP’s. In 2002, he won the Academy Award for Best Original Song for Lose Yourself from the film 8 Mile, in which he also played the lead. Lose Yourself would go on to become the longest running #1 rap single.
Eminem then went on hiatus after touring in 2005. He released his first album since 2004’s Encore, titled Relapse, on May 15, 2009. Eminem has sold more than 80 million albums worldwide to date and is one of the best-selling music artists in the world.
Born in Saint Joseph, Missouri, USA on October 17, 1972, Mathers currently resides in Detroit, Michigan, USA
