Eminem Biography

In Eminem's controversial unreleased song, We As America, he says, "I'd rather see the President dead." This invited so many serious political debates that the US Secret Service decided to examine his lyrics to see whether he had threatened President George Bush. Another work of his, the video Mosh, suggests a frontal attack on Bush. Recently many TV stations banned Eminem's latest promo on Just Lose It due to the fact it pokes fun of the celebrities Madonna, Michael Jackson, Pee Wee Herman and MC Hammer. Despite the controversies concerning his lyrics and personal life it is difficult not to take any notice of Eminem's sharp talent in music. He is often considered to be one of the greatest rappers and the struggles in his career have not stopped him from receiving worldwide recognition. Read Full Bio >>

Despite the lack of the music video, the album featuring the parody, "Poodle Hat," earned Yankovic his highest chart debut in "Billboard" (#17) and in February 2004 his third Grammy Award.
