Marshall Mathers (more commonly known by his stage name, Eminem) is one of the most successful rappers in the world. He is hands down my favorite rapper of all time. He can free-style up to 97 words per minute and can write interesting lyrics to say the least.
Marshall Bruce Mathers III (aka Eminem) was born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. He was the only child of Deborah R. Nelson-Mathers and Marshall Bruce Mathers Jr. His mother nearly died giving birth to him. Before his parents divorced, his father up and left the family when Marshall was young. He has three other siblings from his parents other relationships.
Since his father left the family, he was raised primarily by his mother. Marshall tried to have contact with his father by writing him letters but the letters were always sent back saying ‘return to sender’. His father didn’t want to have anything to do with Marshall as he was growing up.
Marshall and his mother moved many times, shuffling between Missouri and Michigan. They rarely stayed in one house for more than a year or two at the most.
