|Eminem, who was born Marshall Mathers, has cultivated his notoriously grotesque, sardonic stance on life and its bitterness since he was grown up enough to
realize the hardships and irony of living in a society. His emotionally charged messages stem from a touchy soul that saw too much of poverty and injustice. Eminem's rap performing started at age 14 in a basement, them he moved to the MC clubs to improve his makings against proved performers, thus gradually breaking the racial boundaries in that genre. Inspired by his guru Dr. Dre, Eminem turns the showbusiness world upside down with his caustic lyrics and miraculous gift to vent on any example of disgrace and banality. The unprecedentedly talented for a white rapper Eminem changed several groups before making the name for one of the most gifted and controversial rappers the world has seen. He found himself most comfortable in D-12 in the company of fellows who supported each other's solo performances, giving a great push to his looming as an individual artist. Eminem debuted in 1996 with the successful solo album Infinite to launch the triple platinum Slim Shady LP followed three years later. The colorful mixture of anger and irony that his lyrics radiate reaches its climax in 2000's The Marshall Mathers LP where his bitter personal experience reaches the highest level of exposure to the general public. The album's undeniable success was
accompanied by a series of dramatic public events that opened the floodgates to mainstream media's yellow power such as: a battle with pop star Christina
Aguilera over a lyric about her sexuality, a lawsuit from his mother over defamation of character, a split with his wife for his song "Kim" over its
wife-murdering topic etc. Eminem's talent is very adequately captured in the movie 8 Mile that represents an outburst of his MC gift inspired by the colorful picture of his life so far. His music performance to date has been awarded with six Grammy awards and their number is expected to grow as Eminem has the potential to go on despite the drawbacks he confronts.
