Marshall Mathers was born in Saint Joseph, Missouri on October 17, 1972. His father Bruce left them and moved to California to start a new family. Eminem had a rough childhood and was often bullied and beaten at school.
When his family lived in Detroit, their home was in a predominantly black neighborhood, thus Eminem was also a victim of racial beating during that time.
Before he discovered hip-hop, he was initially very passionate about comic books and storytelling. He left Lincoln High School at the age of 17 and worked various jobs to help pay the bills.
His mother would often kick him out of the house and neglect him. Whenever I went to play Bingo, Eminem would raise his stereo and start writing songs.
Eminem started performing in rap fights with his friend Mike Ruby when he was just 14 years old. Later, 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 it was a failure; Mainly because of Eminem’s style and people’s feelings towards him at the time. He was told that his style wasn’t cut for hip-hop and that only prompted him to keep writing more rhymes.
In 1997, he was discovered by Dr. Dre, 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 United States alone. He has collaborated with a large number of artists and even starred in a movie based on his story.
Today, Eminem is considered 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.
Eminem’s net worth in 2021 is $230 Million.
