Eminem was born Marshall Bruce Mathers III on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. He spent his youth moving around Missouri with his single mom before they settled in Warren, Michigan. Before they divorced, his parents Marshall Sr. And Deborah “Debbie” Rae Nelson were actually in a band called Daddy Warbucks that performed around the mid-west, primarily at Ramada Inns.
After the divorce, Debbie and Marshall shuttled back and forth between Michigan and Missouri, never staying in one place for more than year, living primarily with family members. As a child, Marshall was a loner who was bullied frequently at school. In his teenage years, they lived in a predominantly-black neighborhood of Detroit.
Eminem initially dreamed of being a comic book artist, but that changed after he heard his first rap song, Reckless – Featuring Ice-T, off the soundtrack to the movie “Breakin'”. The album was a gift from his half-brother Ronnie.
At 14 he adopted the rap persona “M&M” (based off his initials). At 17 he dropped out of high school. He worked a series of odd-jobs while writing songs and participating in freestyle rap battles around town.
