The Real Slim Shady

Purpose:

Hi, I'm Victor Martin. I am a sixth grader at Holman Middle. I did this for a project because I find Eminem interesting.

Comparing and contrasting two albums

Two of Em's Grammy winners are very popular among millions of people. Although they're both albums by Eminem, they have many differences. For example, the style of music is much different, considering that Eminem's alter-ego "slim shady" appears Multiple times in The Marshall Mathers lp, whereas in the album RECOVERY, There is no sign of him. The Marshall Mathers lp is older than RECOVERY as well. Recovery is his second newest album, and the Marshall Mathers lp is his fifth oldest. Also there is no skits in RECOVERY, but there is in the Marshall Mathers lp, and they both feature many artists.

A few Eminem songs to listen to.

Cause and effect

Because Eminem grew up in the ghetto, all of the following happened. Proof went along with him on his path to success, making proof famous as well although he was shot. They also made a movie, "8 mile", about Em's journey in which he starred as himself making him the only rapper ever to win an Oscar. Also, he now inspires people in the ghetto and gives them a little hope of getting out of there.

This is Eminem with his best friend proof, who was later murdered on April 11, 2006. He was 32 years old. May you rest in peace, Proof.

Timeline

As you can see on the diagram, Eminem was born in 1972. After growing up and deciding what he wanted to do, he drops out of high school after failing his freshman year 3 times,and pursues the rap career. It was a success, in 1996 he releases Infinite, which gets him big. In 1999 he marries Kimberly Scott at the age of 27, later divorcing her and getting remarried to her. His most recent accomplishment was releasing the Marshall Mathers lp 2 which won a Grammy.

Detroit, Michigan (shown above) is where Eminem spent most of his time

I think Eminem is really cool, and currently, Rap God is my third favorite song. Eminem is a really unique topic. It's really sad that Proof was murdered.
