Think you know everything there is to know about the multi-Grammy award-winning rapping phenom Eminem, or are you curious to know more about the real Slim Shady? Well guys, we’ve compiled the top 5 things you should know about the Detroit rapper. Did you know that  he actually failed 9th grade multiple times, and that he’s not originally from Detroit? We know, crazy right?!

There’s so much more to Em than just his blond hair and controversial lyrics. Since hitting the scene in the late ‘90s, he’s been a pretty big force to contend with and has had his hands in quite a few projects, even a foundation helping the inner city youth.

When Marshall Mathers isn’t rockin’ the mic (these days with Rihanna by his side), he’s taking care of his daughter, Hailie, and well, keeping it low key. And for that, we love the guy.

But for the rest of us who are wondering what the 41-year-old (can you believe it?!) musician’s been up to all these years, take a look at the video above!
