Marshall Bruce Mathers III aka Eminem is a white rapper who grew up moving from house to house and in a house with a single Mom. I choose Marshall Bruce Mathers III because he is my favorite rapper. He relates to everyday things that go wrong in his life. He usually raps about his self, his kids, ex-wife, Mother and other really important people to him. Marshall got the name Eminem from his initals “M & M”. My Dad also was a big fan of Eminem and that’s how I started listing to his music and I was hooked. My favorite song is “Till I Collapse.” In my paper your will learn how Marshall Bruce Mathers III became famous and some of his problems, life challenges and awards.

Marshall Bruce Mathers was my choice to write a report on because he is really important to me. He’s like me in the way he doesn’t let no one walk over him. People booed him thinking he wasn’t good enough. Marshall Bruce Mathers came above that and all his life problems and showed them what he could accomplish. Even though I knew a lot about Marshall Bruce Mathers there were a few things I learned. It was a shock to learn he had three kids, I thought he only had one daughter. Also I did not know that his Mother sued him and even though she didn’t get the settlement she was looking for that she still for $25,000. After knowing he had got a divorce I never seen or heard in the news where he had remarried one of his daughters Mothers.
