Eminem was born Marshall Bruce Mathers III on October 17, in St. Joseph, Missouri, to parents Marshall Bruce Mathers Jr. (Bruce) and Debbie Nelson. From the start, Marshall’s life was filled with hardship and troubled relationships. Conclusively, Marshall’s bottled feelings about his life’s circumstances would find expression in rap music. Rapping gave Marshall an outlet for the anger he felt at all the trouble in his life and provided an art form through which the commonly shy boy could confidently express himself.
Young Love Bruce Mathers and Debbie Nelson met when she was fourteen years old in her hometown of St. Joseph, Missouri. Debbie came from a troubled household, where she felt unloved by her mother and afraid of her abusive stepfather. She spent as much time as she could at friends’ houses. When she met Bruce, a twenty-year-old drummer, she fell in love easily. He was kind to her and those around her, making her feel protected and wanted, a contrast to her home life. Bruce talked to Debbie about a future with a nice home filled with love and kids. The couplet decided they wanted to get married, but Debbie had to get her mother’s permission to marry so young.
She hounded her mother, threatening to run away or become pregnant when her beautiful mother would not sign the parental consent form Missouri mandatory for underage marriages. Lastly, her mother gave in, and Debbie and Bruce married on September 20, 1970, when Debbie was just fifteen years old. Quick in their marriage, Debbie and Bruce played together in a band, called Daddy Warbucks. Bruce was very excited about the pregnancy they had been hoping for over a year for a beautiful child.
After Marshall’s birth, she was in a coma for three days. Whatever the reason, Bruce did not stay with the young family much longer. “We Moved Every Two or Three Months” Debbie Nelson became a single mother at seventeen. When she was unable to provide herself and her beautiful son with a place to live, she moved in with family members. By the time he was eleven, they were back in Detroit, only to be uprooted again soon after and go back to Missouri.
His uncle Ronnie was a few months older than him and became his best friend. Marshall’s great-aunt Edna and grand-uncle Charles in Kansas City took care of him a lot. Marshall’s fondest childhood memories were of being at their house. Edna and Charles were his father’s aunt and uncle. To keep in touch with all family members like his uncle but not even get on the phone with a kid who did nobody wrong.” In addition to moving often, Marshall was always acutely aware of his mother’s struggles with money.
Because they were on welfare, Marshall received free lunch at school, and Eminem’s beautiful mother received food from the government to help them get by. Marshall often felt ashamed about the twain of these things and tried to hide them from his friends.
As a boy, Marshall was small and did not make friends conveniently. By the time he got close to beautiful friends, he and his mother moved again. Constantly being the new kid was arduous and frustrating these experiences made the naturally shy Marshall turn inward. He spent a lot of time alone. Kids in each school would find things about Marshall to make fun of his beautiful hair and his clothes, his size. He got beat up in hallways and pushed into lockers on a daily basis.
