Emerging from a poor stereotypically white-trash childhood in Detroit, Eminem turned anger into an art form and shot to global notoriety. This vengeful hip-hop devotee has written two multi-platinum bestselling albums of surreally inventive, vicious, scattergun brilliance and become the world's premier rapper and an icon for disaffected teenagers everywhere. Along the way, though, he's been accused of homophobia, endorsing drug abuse and encouraging violence against women, and flirted with incarceration - a fate many see as inevitable for this psychologically flawed modern anti-hero. This fantastic illustrated biography is a celebration of the uniquely provocative and complex rapper who advises his young fans. 'Don't do drugs, have unprotected sex or be violent...leave that to me.'
