Eminem net worth Bio
Marshall Mather was born on October 17, 1972, in St. Joseph Missouri. His father quickly abandoned the family, moving to California. Eminem says that he often wrote letters to his father, although he never accepted a response.
Eminem was bullied throughout much of his early life. He turned to write lyrics and telling stories to get by.
He started by performing at rap battles at the age of 14. His reputation slowly grew throughout Detroit, leading to invitations to collaborate with some of the most successful rap groups in the area, including D12.
After a few years of progress on the rap battle circuit, Eminem released “Infinite,” his first album. The album was poorly received, both commercially and critically, and his career seemed to be shipwrecked from the start.
After his third successful album, Eminem tried to make the leap from music to acting, a transition that usually trips up most artists. But Eminem is not most performers, and the movie that came out of his foray into acting, 8 Mile, was a commercial and critical darling. The film went on to win an Oscar for one of its songs, the first time that a rap song had won the honor.
Eminem says that the filming of the video was grueling, requiring over 16 hours of work per day. He took the role seriously, fearing that he would not be able to act as great as he rapped. To prepare, he enrolled in an acting boot camp.
