Who is Eminem?
Eminem is a popular American rapper and songwriter. He is one of the best-selling artists in the world, with over 200 million albums sold globally. In fact, Eminem is dubbed the all-time king of rap in some reports.
Eminem aka Slim Shady started rapping at the age of 14, though his debut album “Infinite” was released in 1996, when he was 24 years old. Three years later (1999), Eminem became famous after releasing his second album “The Slim Shady LP” under Dr Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment record label.
Most people know the rapper as Eminem or Slim Shady but his real name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III. Eminem was born on October 17, 1972, in St Joseph, Missouri, United States. He is 49 years old as of June 2022. Although he has half-siblings, he is the only child of his mother, Deborah Nelson and father Marshall Bruce Mathers Jr.
Eminem’s childhood days were rough. Aside from growing up in a poor home, Eminem had to face abuse at an early age. For instance, at the age of 9, his schoolmate named D’Angelo Bailey allegedly beat him up which made him stay in a coma for over one week. However, the rapper never let his childhood struggles affect him. Instead, he saw them as a motivation to push harder. Eminem is known for expressing his struggles through his music.
Eminem has three half-siblings named Michael Mathers, Sarah Mathers and Nathan Kane Samara. Michael Mathers and his sister Sarah Mathers and Eminem share the same biological father, Bruce Mathers, but different mothers. Michael Mathers and Eminem do not have a close relationship. Sarah Mathers, on the other hand, stated that she only knew Eminem was her brother in 2005.
When Eminem’s biological father left the family, Eminem’s mother got married to another man named Fred Samara. Together, they had a son named Nathan Kane Samara (Nathan Kane Samara-Mathers in full) in 1986. Nathan is Eminem’s half-brother. They share the same mother but a different father. Unlike Eminem’s other siblings, Nathan Kane has a good relationship with Eminem. Moreso, the rapper claimed to have practically brought up his younger brother, Nathan Kane Samara, while accusing their mother of neglect and abuse in his 2002 hit song, “Cleanin’ Out My Closet”.
