Who is Eminem? A hugely popular, world-renowned rapper. He has had several of his own albums (all highly successful), and also has collaborated with many different music stars in different genres of music. I'm not a huge fan, but I give credit to any artist who creates his own music/lyrics and is successful at it.

WOW, I can't believe all the posters here hating on Eminem!! the OP posts that the man is sick and all people can do is post snide comments! harsh. you don't have to like his music, but come on, show a tiny bit of compassion and respect. he has 2 young kids at home that are probably very concerned right now.

as to all the "questions" about who Em is, well, he's an award winning, internationally known rapper, star of an award winning movie, 8 Mile (the song from that movie, Lose Yourself, won an Oscar and several other awards). he's also known for stirring up a bit of controversy with his music. despite the questionable nature of some of his music, he is widely regarded as one of the top rappers to ever come out.

like christina0001 said, you don't have to be a fan of Em (though I'm a HUGE fan of him!), but you can't deny his talent and his success

I am pretty sure that those posters were using a bit of sarcasm.
And, well, I'll never deny his success, but I will clown on his cry-baby lyrics.
I've been through quite the mess in my childhood & beyond, but I've overcome that crap & now live a happy, normal adulthood.
But I do not whine about it. Eminem does.
But Oh my Gawd! He raps about true life! Whatever, we all have issues & alot of us don't feel the need to air out dirty laundry.

Glad you recovered E.

I can't say i own any of his albums,or i'm his biggest fan, but he does have kids at home, trust me i had a bout with pneumonia last year and i have a newfound respect for people who went through this, it really is no joke.

I didnt mean to sound like I hated this person, thats not the idea at all, I just never knew who it/she/he was. I dont listen to rap so am a little naive in who's who in the world of that style....
