All the work he put in his career finally did pay off. He hustled by making his own self made cassette tape recordings to record agencies, radio stations, and to basically anyone that would listen to him. His then girlfriend gave birth to his daughter which he talks a lot about in his music, Haile Jade. He later married his girlfriend Kim and he also raps about her as well in some of his songs. His first album called Infinite released in 1996 followed by the release of The Slim Shaddy EP in 1998 and then Dr. Dre signed Eminem and release The Slim Shady LP in 1999. The album later hit No.2 on the Billboard charts within weeks not months. The Marshall Mathers LP was released in May 2000. Eventually he reached ultimate fame where he finally gained the respect he deserved no matter what color he is.
