Today we celebrate two music icons; Eminem and Wyclef Jean!
The artiste most notably was one of those running the music game from 1999 up through 2003, releasing three well-reviewed and multi-platinum albums.
He became an international sensation after the release of his first single, “My Name Is.”
However, it all came crashing down around 2004, when a string of problems ranging from drug dependence to depression to the tragic death of best friend Deshaun “Proof” Holton in 2006
This led to Em switching his style up to more emotional subject matter on 2010’s Recovery, which was well-received bagging a Grammy award.
Eminem founded Shady Records in 1999 (after the success of The Slim Shady LP).
Eminem’s upcoming album ‘Root’ has 12 tracks with collaborations with Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Jay Z and Skylar Grey.
He joined The Fugees in 1990.
He filed for candidacy in the 2010 Haitian presidential election, but his candidacy was ruled ineligible by the Electoral Commission.
He was featured on Shakira’s hit song “Hips Don’t Lie.”
Wyclef turns 47.
Happy Birthday to the superstars!
