Eminem was born Marshall Bruce Mathers 111 October 17, 1972 in Saint Joseph, Missouri. Marshall’s family later moved to Detroit, Michigan.
The 39-year-old told hundreds in the audience that he “wouldn’t have gotten out of that dark place without y’all” before he performed the Grammy-winning song Not Afraid.
He said the performance was “dedicated to anybody tonight who’s been through personal struggles”.
Eminem’s addiction and climb to sobriety is detailed in his 2010 album Recovery. It was that year’s best-selling album.
