Author Isabelle Eslingabout this book: This book presents Eminem within the Detroit context that fully shaped him to become the rap mogul he is now.

I am a music journalist who has a huge passion for rap music. When I discovered Eminem back in 2001, I was amazed by the artist s huge talent and it inspired me to write about him. My reading audience is mainly a hip hop loving audience, but it also targets anybody who is just curious about the artist and who wants to know more.

It took me years to write this book because English is not my native language and I wanted to perfect it to the best standards. I came up with this title with my publisher's help and I think it expressed best what my book is about.

The hardest part was the biographical part, because you have to be very cautious about what you are saying about the artist and his family.

This book is the fruit of precise research and interviews I have done with local Detroit artists. It took me a few years to figure out the Detroit rap scene, as it is quite vast.

I would like to tell my readers that if they like Eminem and Detroit rap, this book is exactly for you. You are going to learn a lot about Eminem as a person, an artist, about D12 and the Detroit scene!
