Famous rapper Eminem was born Marshall Bruce Mathers III on October 17, 1972 in Saint Joseph, Missouri, USA. He is the son of a fifteen-year-old mother at the time of his birth and a father who left six month later never to return. Spent most of his childhood moving back and forth between Saint Joseph and suburban Detroit, Michigan, he finally settled on the Eastside of Detroit when he was 12. Formerly enrolled in Lincoln High School in Warren from 1986 to 1989, Marshall often switching schools every two to three months made him difficult to make friends, graduate and to stay out of trouble. Failed the 9th grade three times until finally dropping out, he said he wasn't stupid, which actually proven by interviews and his obvious success. Rather Marshall would like to say that he lacked an interest in school because all he wanted to do was rap.
