Eminem (real name Marshall Bruce Mathers III) is an American rapper born in 1972 in Missouri but who came to prominence out of Detroit. He is among the world’s best-selling music artists and was the top artist in terms of sales in the United States during the 2000s. Eminem’s mainstream success followed the release of The Slim Shady LP in 1999, which earned a Grammy Award for Best Rap Album. More awards came with The Marshall Mathers LP (2000) and The Eminem Show (2002), which both reached diamond status, meaning more than 10 million copies sold.

It's really interesting to see such a hardcore badass of the music industry, to have his soft side so naturally unfolding in a track, having all his emotions erupting down on the paper like a volcano, with the most notable part may not being that the song is about his daughter, as he mentions her a lot in his tracks, but the fact in a major part of the song Eminem's actually singing!
