I loved Kaos and Mystro, Awesome Dre, Proof, Smiley, Prince Vince, Jo to the D, Detroit Box, AWOL, DmW, a lot of local stuff. Awesome Dre’s ‘ Master Of Philology’, Merciless Amir’s ‘ A Day Without A Rhyme’ and Prince Vince’s ‘ Changes’ were some of my favorites. It made me feel proud to be from the D and made the possibilities of making some noise out of the city seem more realistic. I think I owe a lot to the foundation they all laid, for sure. (Eminem). Coming from a poor background in Detroit, Eminem struggled hard while being underground and made his own way to become a superstar. His life story is far from being a fairy tale. Bullied at school, experiencing reverse racism on a daily basis, coming from a dysfunctional family with a drug dependant history; Marshall Mathers carried the dream to become a rapper: A dream that was so huge and seemed so foolish, that neither his teachers, his family, nobody...except Big Proof, and then Dr. Dre would take him seriously. Growing up on the black side of 8 Mile in Detroit, the young boy totally integrated into the culture and focused on the same musical interest as his friends. Eminem also lived on the other side of 8 Mile in Detroit, where he had a bunch of poor white friends as well. Experiencing both sides of the ghetto provided Eminem with treasured bridges to both cultures. With over 100 million albums sold worldwide, and Academy Awards, Grammy Awards, American Music Awards, ASCAP Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, Gold and Platinum Albums, under his belt, Eminem is one of the best-selling rap artists ever. Discovered by legendary record producer Dr. Dre, Eminem was signed to Dre's Aftermath Entertainment Record Label in 1999 and he brought along his D12 rap group members and other Detroit rappers, all who would go on to have their own record deals and sell Gold and Platinum Albums. EMINEM and the Detroit Rap Scene: White Kid in a Black Music World chapters include: “The Detroit Hip Hop Scene”; “The Dirty Dozen – The Story Behind the D12 Group”; “Eminem’s Artistic Evolution"; “White Kid in a Black Music World".
