Life from being an Underdog to RAP GOD: EMINEM

The 47-year-old EMINEM hitmaker. He was born as Marshall Bruce Mathers III in Saint Joseph, Missouri. Marshal spent most of his youth in the 8 Mile, Detroit city of Michigan. He started his journey with rap from the urban center. He suffered ‘discrimination’ because the solely human taking the stage at shows.


EMINEM would move constantly, meaning that he was constantly, being seen by his peer as the new kid in school. In short, he was an underdog story in the making from very early on. He has shared through interviews about being beaten up in bathrooms, in the hallways, shoved in lockers.

The Coma Trauma.

EMINEM was 9 when he got beaten up to such a degree, that he ended up in a coma for a week. Certainly not too surprising from who would become a vicious wordsmith widely known for attacking famous public figures. Considering that his dad moved away when he was very young.

Young Marshall Mathers had a crash course in standing up for himself & drawing strength from a personalized sense of righteousness. The best way that EMINEM found to do this was through rapping. This is what young EMINEM strove to do when confronted with constant bullying. He received all the while growing up in what were predominantly black low-income neighborhoods. He had done since the tender age of 4 & has continued to work hard on up until the present day. What we hear in raps is his time tested confidence from someone who does feel as though as he got something to say. He had worked hard to articulate what he wants to be carried across. He even claimes that he dropped out of high school because all he wanted to do was rap. So, it was far more than a hobby.

EMINEM knew that it was something he wanted to do for the rest of his foreseeable life. Rap was the new form of self-expression that actually brought him some respect in the social circle. It matured him before the eyes of other people his age. Eminem has become a hero of sorts for many young people, particularly in the lower class. Basically for those who feel that they aren’t being heard. They had to deal with the difficulties of growing up in a racist society.

EMINEM was forced to turn his talents towards becoming a battle rapper in the underground community. He uses to perform at all kinds of clubs & even local radio shows. By reinforcing an attitude that prevails to this day. He has to force his way through in order to receive recognition.
