He's currently dominating the iTunes singles chart and has a new album just around the corner. Join Capital as we put the spotlight on the 'Rap God' that is Eminem.
Eminem was born Marshall Bruce Mathers III but his stage name is Eminem. He's also know as Slim Shady, Em and B-Rabbit (From his role in the movie 8-Mile).
Eminem was born in St Joseph, Missouri, USA on October 17th, 1972, making him 41. He shares his birthday with Peter Stringfellow and Evel Knievel.
Eminem once had ambitions to be a comic book artist and the rapper drew a number of the illustrations that feature throughout his discography. He also published a comic book called 'Eminem/The Punisher: Kill You'.
Eminem was heavily influenced by The Beastie Boys and even samples their tracks '(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party)' and 'The New Style' in his recent single 'Berzerk'. The first rap song Eminem ever heard was 'Reckless' by Ice-T, aged nine.
He performed a duet of 'Stan' at the 2001 Grammys with Elton John and also shocked audiences by taking a real chainsaw on stage at a separate gig in the same year.
His worldwide album sales are estimated at more than 100 million, singles 120 million, a total of more than 220 million records. WOW!
Yes. After releasing 'Bezerk' and 'Rap God', Eminem recently released 'The Monster' featuring Rihanna. They all feature on his new album 'Marshall Mathers LP 2' which was released on November 5th, 2013.
Eminem was the first rapper ever to win an Academy Award. He won the Oscar for Best Original Song in the movie 8-Mile. He has also won a total of 244 awards, including 13 Grammys and 4 BRIT Awards.
Eminem will be heading to Australia in February 2014 for his 'Rapture' tour, including dates in Auckland, Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney. Kendrick Lamar and 360 have been announced as his support acts.
