The King Of Hip-Hop

Filed under: student presentations — richardlstansfield @ 6:59 am

Hip-hop music is one of the most popular kinds of music today. Now we will present about the king of hip-hop___ Eminem.

In America, only blacks have been successful in Hip-hop. Eminem, a white guy, was successful in hip-hop music. So let us tell you the legend of him.
His name’s Bruce Marshall Mathers, but his fans prefer to call him “slim shady”. He is a legend,not just because he’s white rapper,but his great talent in rap music.He can rap with any kind beat,and the lyrics are not gentle. Eminem was born in a poor family. He always quarreled with his mother. So he often sang some Hip-hop music to express his feelings with friends. One day, a famous musician, Dr Dre, discovered Eminem¡¯s ability. So he started his music career. Dr. Dre was so impressed after hearing Eminem freestyling on a Los Angeles radio station that he put out a manhunt for the Michigan rhymer. Shortly thereafter, Dre signed Eminem to his Aftermath imprint and the two began working together. Thoroughly impressed with Eminem’s previously released independent Slim Shady EP, Dre said they would include many of the EP’s tracks on the album.

He wons a lot of awards, including 8 Grammy, 1 Oscar, 6 Europe MTV. Perhaps nobody can over it. He never forget his friends. Because of Proof’s death, he even said goodbye to the stage,till 2009.
But on the other hand, there are some obscenities in his lyrics. He hates the world, hates women, and hates the government. That brought him a lot of controversy. Some mainstream magazines criticized him, saying that he teaches children bad things. He shot anyone he wanna shoot, his mom, his wife, some stars that he hate. So some people call him ruffian. But it should be noted that it will never be Hailie Jade, his daughter. He loves her so much so that he wrote many songs for her. No matter how people say he is evil, he is always true to her. He is a great father.


Why is Eminem so famous in the world?
Do you think he is a great musician? Why or why not?
What made him successful?
Do you like him? Why or why not?
