- Me, Myself, and I
- Marshall Mathers, recording as Eminem, started rapping as a teenager in Detroit, Michigan. His self-produced recording The Slim Shady EP caught the attention of famed rapper and producer Dr. Dre, who helped Eminem produce The Slim Shady LP. The 1999 record made Eminem a radio and video superstar, with a reputation as a white rapper who wasn't afraid to be vulgar. His fame was only heightened by troubles with the law and legal battles with this mother and his wife. (He married his high school sweetheart, the former Kimberly Scott, in 1999. They were divorced in 2001, then remarried briefly in 2006.) He released the best-selling The Eminem Show in 2002 and also starred in the Curtis Hanson movie 8 Mile, a drama loosely based on Eminem's early life in Detroit. In 2003 Eminem became the first rapper to win an Oscar (for the song "Lose Yourself," from 8 Mile). His 2005 greatest hits album was titled Curtain Call.
