Transcript of eminem



Eminem was born October 17, 1972, Kansas city, Missouri, USA. Eminem never knew his father, Marshall Mathers Jr., who abandoned the family when Eminem was still an infant and rebuffed all of his many attempts to contact him during his childhood. As a result, Eminem was raised by his mother, Deborah Mathers. Marshall endured an itinerant childhood, living with his mother in various states before eventually ending up in detroit at the age of 12. Marshall dropped out of high school at the age of 17. Marshall went to persue his dream of becoming a rapper.
Although at the time rap music was almost exclusively produced by black people, Eminem, who has pale white skin, bright blue eyes, nevertheless entered into the Detroit rap scene as a frequent competitor in rap "battles", competitions in which two rappers take turns insulting each other. Eminem during that time released The Slim Shady LP Demo,which was discovered by Dr. Dre, the legendary rapper and former producer of Eminem's favorite rap group N.W.A. Dr. Dre traveled to Detroit to see Eminem compete in a rap battle and was so impressed that he signed Eminem to his Interscope Records label on the spot. In 1997, Eminem was now a member of Interscope Records.
In 1999, after two years working with Dr. Dre, Eminem released The Slim Shady LP.Eminem released his second studio album, The Marshall Mathers LP, in May 2000 and sold over 19 million copies world wide and got a grammy with hit single "My Name Is". In 2001, Eminem reconnected with several of his friends from the Detroit underground rap scene to form the group D12, recording an album called Devil's Night. A year later, Eminem released a new solo album, The Eminem Show, another popular and critically acclaimed album highlighted by the tracks "Without Me," "Cleaning Out my Closet" and "Sing for the Moment." His next album, 2004's Encore, was less successful than his previous efforts, but still featured popular songs such as "Like Toy Soldiers" and "Mockingbird."
Eminem recorded very little music and was largely consumed by personal problems. Eminem and Kim Mathers divorced in 2000 but continued to maintain a tumultuous off-and-on relationship until remarrying in 2006. Nevertheless, they divorced again several months later and began a protracted, ugly and highly public custody dispute over their daughter Hailie. Eminem slipped further into alcoholism and addiction to sleeping pills and prescription painkillers. In December 2007, he overdosed and went to the emergency room.
By 2008, Eminem had managed to kick his addictions to drugs and alcohol and returned to recording music. He released his first album of new music in five years, Relapse, in 2009, featuring the singles "Crack a Bottle" and "Beautiful." In 2010, Eminem released another album, Recovery, a highly autobiographical attempt to come to terms with his experiences of addiction and rehabilitation. Eminem is doubtlessly one of the most acclaimed rappers in the genre's brief history. As much as any other individual artist, he is responsible for rap's transformation into a mainstream music genre over the past decade.
