Video: ’60 Minutes’ Profiles Eminem

Anderson Cooper and Eminem

CBS’ “60 Minutes” chronicled Eminem’s rise from being bullied in school to becoming the biggest-selling artist of the decade. Journalist Anderson Cooper followed Em to Detroit, visiting his old 8 Mile stomping grounds, an underground club where he battled, his private recording studio, and one of his sold-out concerts at Detroit’s Comerica Park.

Marshall Mathers told Anderson how he stores all his lyrics on notepads (aka “stacking ammo”), not being interested in meeting his father, refraining from using profanity in his house, being two hours away from dying of a drug overdose, and commencing with his first stadium show since being sober.

Em hopes his story can help others weather the storm. “If I can help people that have been through a similar situation, then why not?” he said.

Watch the full interview and bonus clips below.

    It’s always dope to hear stories like this of all these entertainers who had such humble beginnings like most of us! Loved the watch story to & Em always seemed like that type where he doesn’t really the money get to him!

    Bwahaha @D12. I can’t. There’s some stupid people on the internet.


  12. From Tokyo

    If someone isn’t familiar with the show (if they’re from another country or just don’t know it) then the title seems to imply something along those lines. Y’all so mean that you have to jump on someone about that? Dang. smh at THAT.
