Born Marshall Mathers III, Eminem overcame a difficult childhood to become the most critically acclaimed white rapper of his time. His albums have sold in the millions, and he’s won MTV Video Music Awards, Grammy Awards, and even an Oscar. But fame and success have come with a price: His lyrics have been attacked for encouraging violence against women and others. His turbulent personal life has made countless headlines. While some people have called for his music to be banned, others have labeled him a genius.

Eminem is a compelling full-color biography that examines the remarkable life of a controversial yet undeniably talented artist who pushed creative envelopes and broke racial boundaries to become one of hip-hop's greatest stars. Hip-hop history and fun facts are featured in this engaging title, along with a current discography, a timely chronology, a glossary, sidebars, and more.
