As a child he moved constantly, rarely staying in one house for more than a year or two. As a teen, he wrote letters to his father. All of them came back “return to sender.” At school he was a loner and was often bullied. He spent a lot of his life in a largely black lower-middle-class Detroit neighborhood, and was confronted and beaten up several times.
As a child, he loved storytelling and wanted to become a comic book artist before he found hip hop. At 14, he began rapping with friend Mike Ruby. Their names were “Manix” and “M&M,” which became Eminem. He snuck into a nearby school with friend and fellow rapper Proof for lunchroom freestyle battles.
After spending 3 years in grade 9 due to poor grades, he dropped out of High School at age 17. Eminem struggled to succeed in a mostly black industry but gained the approval of underground hip hop audiences. He held a minimum-wage job cooking and dishwashing at a restaurant, Gilbert’s Lodge.
