The Early Life of Eminem
Eminem was born on October 17, 1972, at a place called Saint Joseph in Missouri. His parents were called Deborah Nelson and Marshall Bruce Mathers Jr. He was solely brought up by the mom as the father abandoned him while still young. He has two brothers and a sister from his mom, namely Sarah, Nathan, and Michael.
They kept moving from town to town because his mother lacked a permanent job. As a result, Eminem was forced to attend more than two schools in a year, which affected his education. His lifestyle consequently made him a loner because he had no friends.
The rapper schooled his 9th grade at Lincoln High School and failed several times thus, dropping out. He faced rejection from his fellow black artists, which made him grow up in anger- seen in what’s depicted in most of his songs. For instance, at age nine, he was beaten up by Bailey until he entered a coma for a week while nursing a brain hemorrhage. After that, the mom filed a case against the school, but it was dismissed. Bailey has been featured in Eminem’s song titled Brain Damage.
There’s a time when Eminem alleged to be dating Mariah Carey. Nevertheless, the pop artist denied the claim, which resulted in a musical fight between them. Since high school, his true love and girlfriend was called Kimberly Anne Scott. He wrote several intimate songs exclusively to her, most of which reflect hate and passion. Their dating relationship plus marriage has been on and off for long. They got married twice but, their love was too passionate to last.
Eminem has a daughter with Kimberly called, Hailie Jade. On the other hand, Kimberly has two daughters, namely Whitney Scott Matters and Alaina Marie Mathers, who got adopted by Eminem. As it’s evident in her songs, Kimberly has frankly accepted that she cheated on Eminem.
Eminem has significant growth seen in the past few years through his songs. Earlier, his songs mainly criticized his mom, gays, and other social looks. Presently, he has done songs that apologetically express and show his regrets.
Something interesting about Eminem is, he writes better lyrics as likened to many other people in the rap community. He possesses knowledge in expressions and their rhythm. Expect Eminem to rap on anything anytime. Again, he’s left-handed. Could this be the reason why he’s successful? Like the former US president Barrack Obama, it’s said that left-handed people are successful, and Eminem isn’t an exception.
Eminem started his career at 14 with his friend called Mike. Several rap groups recruited him, including ‘New Jacks’ then later ‘Soul Intent.’ Being raised in a musical family, he started earlier, 1988. He won two awards from his songs such as Airplanes and Not Afraid that he’d teamed up with Keyshia Cole and BOB. Apart from rapping, he also did films such as Wash in 2001, 8 Mile in 2002, Jumper in 2003, and The Interview in 2014, where he acted in smaller parts.
He has done production for other rappers like Jay-Z’s songs titled Moment of Clarity, and Renegade. In 1999, he launched the slim LP that won him four MTV Video Music Awards and two Grammy Awards. In 2000, he released the fastest-selling album in history entitled Marshalls Mathers LP. This was followed by another one called Recovery that won him a second Grammy Award. He also partnered with Paul Rosenberg, his manager, who created records that supported artists like 50 Cent. Lastly, he influenced artists, including Big Sean, Chance the Rapper, Nicki Minaj, and others.
