CartoonsGirl
I always wanted to make an Eminem list because I love Eminem and this is the closest list I can make without it being disapproved.

The Top Ten

1 He has sold over 155 million albums and singles
2 He is the Guinness book of world record of being the fastest selling hip-hop artist
3 He wanted to be a comic book artist before he heard about rap
4 When he was 9 years old he was beaten so badly by a school bully that he spent over a week in a coma

That must have been terrible for him! - cosmo

5 Eminem had a crush on Madonna when he was 11
6 He said that he used to spend hours every night studying the dictionary, so he could expand his vocabulary for his rhymes
