50 Illest Eminem Quotes

Worldwide, Eminem is known for his one-word name. His real name is Marshall Bruce Mathers, and he was born on October 17, 1972). The American rapper is known for his blockbuster hit songs including The Real Slim Shady, Lose Yourself, Love the Way You Lie, Without Me, and FACK. Eminem was such an icon since the rap scene in mainstream American pop media was mostly dominated by African-Americans. Known for his snobby and cheeky nature, Eminem was a unique presence as his rap songs had spunk and a kind of honest edge that made his albums popular to angsty youngsters and adults. It was perhaps his family struggles, including the adoption of his daughter, Alaina that became fodder for his songs and artistic talent.

Before becoming the famous rapper Eminem, the influential rapper took a number of names including MC Double M in a bid to create a unique persona that would be a novelty in the rap industry. Then when Eminem released his song Real Slim Shady in 1997, he would come out of insignificance and become an overnight success. He would go on to work with famous names in the industry including Dr. Dre who saw how unique and compelling the rapper was.
