After releasing his debut album Infinite in 1996 and Slim Shady EP in 1997, Eminem signed with Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment which led to the release of The Slim Shady LP in 1999. Both of his follow-up albums, The Marshall Mathers LP and The Eminem Show, were nominated for a Grammy Award for Album of the Year. Since then, he has released seven more studio albums, with the most recent one coming in 2020. In addition to his music career, Eminem made his acting debut in 2002 with 8 Mile, an autobiographical musical drama film about his life.
