My book gives the readers more insight about Eminem from a Detroit perspective. It allows them to understand the context that made him become the artist he is now.
With never before seen photos and interviews and dedicated to the memory of Big Proof, the founder of D12 and Eminem, Eminem and the Detroit Rap Scene: White Kid in a Black Music World will take you deep into the heart of the Detroit Ghetto with Eminem, long before D12 and the Aftermath with D12.
If you want to understand Eminem, you have to understand where he comes from. You can't even begin to think about Eminem without mentioning Detroit and the Detroit Rap Scene; Eminem and the Detroit Rap Scene: White Kid in a Black Music World will bring you to the people, the rappers, the Detroit ghetto, the early years, that inspired him and made him become the person he is now.
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.
