Growing up in a working class neighbourhood in Detroit, Michigan, Marshall Mathers’s story of becoming Eminem, one of the greatest rappers of all-time, is an inspiring tale.
Many may have written off Eminem as a flash in the pan when he first emerged in the late ‘90s, but he has gone on to continuously prove his critics wrong and remains one of hip-hop’s most relevant artists to this day, some 22 years after the release of his major label debut album, The Slim Shady LP, in 1999.
Eminem’s controversial subject matter and unique sense of humour has seen him carve out his own niche and stand out as an important voice for disillusioned youths across multiple generations.
Whether with our friends or by ourselves, we have all fancied ourselves as a rapper at some point when listening to Eminem and have attempted to keep up with his wild and witty lyrics.
But are you able to identify the Eminem song from just one random lyric?
