Marshall Mathers was born in St. Joseph, Missouri on the 17th October 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 beat up in school.
When his family was living in Detroit, their home was in a majorly black neighborhood, and thus Eminem was also victim to racial beatings during that time.
Before he discovered hip-hop, he was first very passionate about comic books and storytelling. He dropped out of Lincoln High school at 17 years old, and worked at various jobs to help pay the bills.
His mother would often throw him out of the house, and neglect him. Whenever she went to play Bingo, Eminem would turn up his stereo and start writing songs.
Eminem started performing at rap battles with his friend Mike Ruby when he was only 14. Later on, 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 was a failure; majorly due to Eminem’s style, and feelings people had towards it at that time. He was told that his style was not cut out for hip hop, and that only motivated him to keep on writing more rhymes.
In 1997, he was spotted by Dr. Dre, the 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 US alone. He’s collaborated with a wide number of artists and even starred in a movie based on his story.
Today, Eminem is considered to be 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 was once assaulted by a bully in elementary school, receiving a serious head injury. His family sued the school but the judge dismissed the case, saying schools are immune from lawsuits. Marshall wrote about this experience in the song ‘Brain Damage,’ and his bully later sued him for invading his privacy and placing him in a negative light. The judge dismissed this case too, delivering the verdict in rhyme form. Eminem has been sued by his own mother for slander, too
In recent years, Eminem has become somewhat of a reclusive celebrity. He has openly struggled with drugs and is now sober. Throughout much of the late 90s and early 2000, much of his personal life was continuously displayed in courtrooms. He has battled both his mother and his ex-wife Kim. Kim and Eminem share a daughter together named Hailie. Eminem also has custody of Kim’s daughter from another relationship, Whitney, and his niece Alaina.
Shady Records/50 Cent
In 1999, Eminem founded his own imprint under Aftermath Records that he called Shady Records. The first act to sign with the company was D12, a group of rappers Eminem knew from Detroit.
In 2002, while he was filming the movie “8 Mile” Eminem was introduced to an underground New York rapper named 50 Cent
. Eminem had already heard several of 50’s mixtapes and was eager to sign him to the label. 50 Cent soon became the first solo artist signed to Shady Records. In that same year, Shady Records released the soundtrack to 8 Mile which was a huge success to the label as it went on to sell over 11 million copies worldwide.
As you can see, the above table does not include the peak record-selling years of Eminem’s career, 2000 to 2003, as data was not reported on back then. He sold more than 50 million records during those years and performed 88 solo concerts as part of the Anger Management Tour.
During those years Eminem earned at least $100 million personally from record sales, touring and merchandise. That brings his total career earnings as of this writing to $380 million, conservatively.
