American rapper, music producer and composer, he is considered as one of the best-selling performers in the world. In addition, Eminem is the holder of fifteen Grammy awards and an Oscar for the best soundtrack to the movie “8 Mile”, where he portrayed the main hero, too.

Raised by a single mother, he passed through a lot of troubles on his way to stardom (most of which were described in his songs). He attended school in black neighborhoods in Detroit, MI and was the only white boy in his classroom. He was bullied for that, and one day the group of his classmates even beat him almost to death. After that his mother took her son and moved to Kansas City.

He started to rap at the age of 13, after listening to Ice-T album “Reckless”. Around that time he decided to rap professionally and started to write songs. Then he left school and began to rap full-time.

At first he combined career of a musician with work of a waiter in the nearest restaurant. In spite of incredibly tough schedule, he released the first album “Infinite” in 1996. It got modest reviews, but that didn’t stop the artist and he continued working and developing his skills.

He rose to stardom after release of the album “Slim Shady LP”, which he prepared in collaboration with Dr. Dre. As for now, the rapper boasts with 10 studio albums, and most of them were ranked as platinum.
