Eminem’s life story

Eminem’s life from birth to the most famous rapper in the world.

Eminem aka Marshall Mathers was born in October 17, 1972, in St. Joseph, Missouri. He had a really hard childhood. His father left him when he was little, leaving Marshall alone with his mother Debbie Mathers. She wasn’t the perfect parent either, having lots of problems sticking to jobs leading to them being poor and changing places often.

Because they moved often Marshall had to change schools every time. “We would move two or three times a year”-he says, “Because of that i didn’t have a lot of friends and often got bullied at school.

Eminem's life story

After failing the ninth grade three times he left school at the age of 17. But still he had a large affinity with language and often liked reading comic books.

“I always was good at English … I just felt like I wanna be able to have all of these words at my disposal, in my vocabulary at all times whenever I need to pull ’em out. You know, somewhere, they’ll be stored, like, locked away.”

Through his talent in language he became a street rapper and joined N.W.A a gangster rap group from Los Angeles. There he often participated in rap battles from which 8 Mile was inspired at.
