If you grew up in my generation, you know how much Eminem changed the Hip-Hop game. Aside from the fact that he was one of the first Caucasian Rappers (and who gives a shit anyways, talent is talent regardless of color or race), he IS a fucking lyrical genius… well, at least in my opinion.
If you\’ve followed his career, you know the dude dealt with a lot of B.S. over the years, from baby mama drama to his own mama\’s lawsuits. Not been an easy ride for Slim Shaddy. His most recent struggle has been against his inner demons, a Drug Problem. It\’s so serious, that Mr. Elton John is trying to help Em win this battle.
I thought I\’d remind Eminem who he really is, where he came from and how big of an impact he\’s had on Hip-Hop. Before being Slim Shaddy… Before being Eminem… He was, is and forever will be:
~R.I.P. Proof (October 2, 1973 – April 11, 2006)~
Get better soon.
