What is the American Rappers Career?
Eminem released his debut album Infinite for the independent Web Entertainment label shortly after signing with Jeff and Mark Bass’s F.B.T. Productions. When the album was first released in 1996, it was a commercial failure. His struggle to raise his newborn daughter, Hailie Jade Scott Mathers, on a tight budget was one of the song’s lyrical themes.
Eminem gained more popularity when he created Slim Shady, a violent, nasty alter persona. With lyrics about drugs, rape, and murder, the character gave him a way to vent his rage. His debut EP, the Slim Shady EP, which was published by Web Entertainment that winter, was created in the spring of 1997.
As a fictionalized version of himself, Eminem made his feature debut in the musical drama 8 Mile (2002). The soundtrack’s song “Lose Yourself” received the Academy Award for Best Original Song, making Eminem the first hip-hop artist to ever receive the honor. The movies The Wash (2001), Funny People (2009), The Interview (2014), and the television show Entourage (2010) all feature cameos from Eminem.
With estimated global record sales of over 220 million, Eminem is one of the best-selling musicians of all time. He was the third most popular music artist overall and the best-selling male musician in the United States during the 2000s and 2010s, respectively. He was selected “Artist of the Decade (2000-2009)” by Billboard.
