Eminem is a punk ass kid from the suburbs of detroit. He did not live in detroit. He lies about his history and is not a rapper, he is POP MUSIC. Face the facts. he whines in every song he's ever done. He sits there in his studio claiming 8 mile when he never lived there. meanwhile esham was up on 7 mile making his stuff in the underground and still has a loyal fanbase to this day, yet nobody's ever heard of him and he's sittin on some nice cash. Eminem is just a pop sensation that fell off and people are confused becuase pop rap isn't usually so glamourized in the media.
