Legend has it… nothing rhymes with the word “orange” and while sitting across from Anderson Cooper, rapper Eminem proceeded that to debunk this lyrical myth. When it comes to word play and rhymes, the man can do the impossible. Hitting it big as an anti-pop star, going after all the top charting artists but this MC soon became so successful that he accidentally became a top charting pop star himself. But of course, this legendary musician tried to fight off the demons of fame and fortune when they manifested in the form of substance abuse and depression. He would over come them, then relapse and recover again… but where he is at in his monster career now? Is he still rapping it up in da streets? Still topping the charts? Still spitting super fly fresh lyrics from his angry little mouth, which now has a weird beard?

So yeah WTF Happened to… EMINEM?

We dig into it in this episode of WTF Happened to this Celebrity, which is written by Mathew Plale, and edited, produced & narrated by Taylor James Johnson. It’s a rare foray for us into the music biz, but with hip hop celebrating it’s 50th anniversary, we figured now was a good time.
