It’s hard to believe that Eminem has been in the rap game for over 20 years! Don’t you feel old? Ever since his mainstream debut he’s been a source of inspiration (for some) and frustration (for others). Basically you either love him or hate him. Even with his frequent hiatuses we can’t seem to get enough of his “bad boy” personality.
Marshall Bruce Mathers III was born October 17, 1972 in Detroit, MI. It’s been claimed that he was rapping since 1988, when he was just 16 years old. He brought rap/hip hop to Middle America and popularized it in the early 2000s, which is when many people (mainly parents of rebellious teenagers) started campaigning against him.
There’s no doubt that Eminem…aka Slim Shady…has had his fair share of triumphs and defeats (as have we all). That may be the reason why his fans cling to his every word, rapped or otherwise. He’s still going even now, becoming more outspoken (if that’s even possible) and gaining an even larger fanbase. Although, given his recent political statements, he may have lost some, too.
