HNHH continues our look at some of rap's most influential and essential artists in our Game Changers series, the focus this time on Detroit's resident legendary emcee, Eminem.
Eminem is one of the biggest things to happen to hip-hop, period. He challenged the status quo and found success as a white artist in a predominantly black industry. Though he was not the first white rapper to blow, Eminem is one of the few to be consistently ranked among the greatest rappers of all time.
Though his recent work hasn't been as impactful as earlier efforts, everyone from the kids on the corner to Donald Trump knows his name and probably even has a song or two on rotation.
He is, at once, one of the most shocking, horrifying, lyrically gifted, and commercially successful rap acts in hip-hop history. HNHH presents our latest Game Changer, Eminem.
