Eminem Reveals Nearly Quitting Rap After Getting Booed:
Grammy-winning rapper Eminem recently revealed how close he was to hanging up the microphone for good after his first public performance ended in getting booed off the stage.
Slim Shady said the trauma behind getting played by concertgoers in the 1990's had him seriously reconsider his potential career.
Eminem almost quit rap after his first ever public performance. The 'Stan' hitmaker started out battle rapping in Detroit in the early 90s, but was so embarrassed when he was booed he almost quit entirely. He said: "The first time I rapped in front of actual people that mattered, in a club, I got booed. And it was very traumatic for me. I just remember it being so f***ing traumatic, and I think I went home and I was like, man, I quit. "And you know a week later, a day later, an hour later I got the urge, and I was like, I gotta get up, I gotta do it again
