Although album sales went platinum virtually overnight and his popularity soared among hip-hop fans of every color and race, the establishment lost no time in condemning him as a threat to the moral fiber of society due to his violent themes and profanity-laced lyrics. To add to the controversy, his mother immediately launched a $10 million lawsuit for slander and defamation of character, alleging his interviews and song lyrics portraying her as an abusive drug addict were untrue and had caused loss of self-esteem, humiliation, and mental distress.

Such lawsuits soon became commonplace, leading Mathers to observe cynically for every million I make, another relative sues (Marshall Mathers, The Marshall Mathers LP).MEET THE AUTHORThe Hyperink Team works hard to bring you high-quality, engaging, fun content.

Happy reading!EXCERPT FROM THE BOOKMathers was interested in storytelling as a child and wanted to be a comic book artist. He was fascinated with words and read the dictionary in his free time trying to expand his vocabulary. Even though he did poorly in school, he always did well in English class.

When he was 11 his uncle, Ronald Ronnie Nelson, who was just a year older and a close friend, introduced him to rap, giving him a copy of Ice-Ts single Reckless. Rap soon became a passion for Mathers, and by age 14 he was giving performances using the pseudonym M&M. With the group Bassmint Productions he recorded an EP and later released a single, Fuckin Backstabber.While enrolled at Lincoln High School in Warren, Mathers participated in rap freestyle battlesverbal fights in which the goal was to create the smartest rhymes and the best insults.

It was here that Mathers found his voice and was able to express his pent-up rage. The fact that rap was predominantly black music and people kept telling him he didnt belong fuelled a desire to show people that he could succeed, in spite of his color, in an ironic reversal of racial inequality. Although he had to struggle with the anti-white prejudices of the African-American rap industry, Mathers eventually built an underground hip-hop following. After failing ninth grade twice, largely because he never showed up to class, Mathers finally dropped out of high school in 1989 at age 17.TABLE OF CONTENTS- Introduction- Background and Upbringing- Major Accomplishments and Awards- Personal Life- In the News- Public Statements- Trivia- Conclusion- List of Links and Further Reading
