[Early Life] Eminem Age, Parents, Siblings, Career, Awards and more
Eminem is 50 years old, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III in St. Joseph, Missouri, on October 17, 1972, the only child of Deborah R. (née Nelson) and Marshall Bruce Mathers Jr. His mother nearly died during her 73-hour labor with him. Eminem’s parents were in a band called Daddy Warbucks, playing in Ramada Inns along the Dakotas–Montana border before their separation.
Marshall Jr. left the family, moving to California to become a boxer, after having two other children, Michael Mathers and Sarah Mathers. Eminem’s mother later had another son, Nathan “Nate” Kane Samara, who was Eminem’s half-brother from her second marriage.
Eminem was brought up by his single mother in a low-income home in Warren, Michigan. He was frequently bullied in school and his mother supported him, often taking on odd jobs to make ends meet.
His childhood abuse and experiences have influenced some of his most powerful motivational songs, ‘Phenomenal,’ ‘Not Afraid,’ and ‘Till I Collapse‘ are just a few examples.
When Eminem was thirteen, Deborah allowed him to live with Bruce’s family for a short time after she and Bruce had a fight about money that ended with Bruce’s car getting set on fire.
Eminem’s dad would ring his family where Eminem was, and ignore the fact that Eminem was living there, and never ask to speak to his son. Not even once. This is one of the reasons Eminem hated his father so much.
Eminem began rapping at age fourteen with high-school friend Mike Ruby, and developed his style by battle rapping against local rappers in Detroit, Michigan. They adopted the names “Manix” and “M&M”, the latter evolving into “Eminem”.
He signed with Interscope Records in 1996 and with Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment in 1999.

The album won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year, making Eminem the first rapper to win the award.
