Eminem’s Tell-All New Memoir: ‘The Way I Am’

Rapper Eminem is making waves again with the release of “I’m Having a Relapse” a leaked track from his forthcoming album, Relapse, which is expected to be released before the end of the year.

But before his first album in more than four years sees the light of day, Eminem is telling his own tale, in a newly published memoir, The Way I Am.

The book documents the “painful childhood and adolescence” of one Marshall Mathers as he rises from Detroit “factory floor sweeper” to rap sensation.

Sound familiar? Of course it does.

It’s called 8 Mile.

In “The Way I Am,” the man born Marshall Bruce Mathers III takes readers into his painful childhood and adolescence and inside the studio and beyond as the former Detroit factory floor sweeper and short-order cook enters the rap game and becomes a worldwide hip-hop sensation.

The book is 200-plus pages worth of text, behind-the-scenes photographs and reproductions of Eminem’s original lyric sheets — hotel stationery and other scraps of paper he used to scratch out partial verses of the songs that would make him famous: From “My Name Is” and “Stan” to “Lose Yourself” and “Without Me.”
