"I would change schools two, three times a year. That was probably the roughest part about it all…. [I got] beat up in the bathroom, beat up in the hallways, shoved into lockers. You know, just...for the most part, man, you know, just bein' the new kid."

"I felt like I was being attacked, I was being singled out. And I felt like, is it because of the color of my skin? ... There was certainly like a rebellious, like, youthful rage in me. And there was also... no getting away from [the] fact that I am white and you know this is predominantly black music. And people telling me 'You don't belong, like you're not going to succeed because you are this color.' Then you wanna show those people that you can and you will." - Eminem (via CBS News)
