Marshall Bruce Mathers III (born October 17, 1972), better known by his stage name Eminem or his alter ego Slim Shady, is a Detroit-born rapper, record producer, and actor. Eminem gained popularity and success as a solo artist following after signing to Aftermath Entertainment, a record label founded by Dr. Dre, bringing his rap group D12 to mainstream recognition as well. Shortly, Eminem established a duo named Bad Meets Evil with close friend Royce da 5'9". Eminem has been listed as one of the greatest artists of all time and he is the best-selling artist of the 2000s.

Eminem's first studio release, Infinite, was released in 1996 by Web Entertainment, followed by his first EP The Slim Shady EP, though they were unsuccessful. After signing to Aftermath, Eminem released The Slim Shady LP (1999) and The Marshall Mathers LP (2000), with the latter being one of him most successful albums. The latter's third single, "Stan" is one of his most critically acclaimed songs to date. He has won Grammys for his albums The Marshall Mathers LP, The Eminem Show (2002), Relapse (2009) and Recovery (2010). Eminem then went on hiatus after touring in 2005. He released his first album since 2004's Encore, titled Relapse, on May 15, 2009. In 2010, Eminem released his seventh studio album Recovery, which was an international success. Recovery was also named the best selling album worldwide of 2010, his second album to achieve this honor after the 2002 album, The Eminem Show. Eminem has named Masta Ace, Big Daddy Kane, Newcleus and Ice-T amongst others as his influences.

Eminem has opened other ventures since the beginning of his success. He founded his own record label, Shady Records, with his manager, and his own radio channel, Shade 45. Eminem began an acting career in 2002, when he starred in the hip hop drama film 8 Mile. He is also set to star in the 2013 films, Have Gun, Will travel, Shady Talez and Southpaw, and made cameo appearances in The Wash (2001), Funny People (2009) and television series Entourage. Eminem has also created a large number of rivals in the music industry, including Ja Rule, Benzino, Everlast, Insane Clown Posse, Canibus and others.

  • Tag all Eminem/Bad Meets Evil/D12-related articles with {{WikiProject Eminem}} in the respective talk pages. Be sure to give an assessment (see the assessment page for guidelines). Remember that that most of them are going to be Low-importance, with the exception of some more successful ones, which can be from Mid- to High-importance. For example, "Stan" is one of Eminem's most successful songs, so that would be of High-importance. See the Eminem singles and D12 navigation templates for a list of articles that need to be tagged. All D12 songs will be Low-importance as they have not been a very significant part of Eminem's career.
  • Place all songs released by Shady Records under Category:Shady Records singles.
