Eminem Quit High School

Eminem began an amateur career as a rapper in high school after his uncle Ronnie introduced him to the genre with a copy of Ice-T's "Reckless." It was his outlet and way to fit in as he struggled as a minority in a predominantly Black school. Eventually, however, he was unable to stay on track academically, and after three years of 9th grade, he dropped out.
