    Do ya'll remember Eminem claimed to be like a trailor park boy?, do you remember the Marshall Mathers LP cover, do you remember how poor he said he was?

    Well when you watch Mockingbird.. he doesnt look that poor to me.. the house the surroundings and everything were middle class stuff .. so what the hell .. I thought he was trailer park trash and shit..

    Eminem was a middle class kid? with a nice swing set for his daughter and a power wheels WTF?

    this video has confused me.. I always thought the dude was actually poor poor .. not like middle class poor
    ..
    Shit he shouldnt bitch as much as he does he wasn't THAT poor.. obviously he had a pretty nice house.. a nice sofa and shit ... sneakers no holes .. clean shirt ..

    Hahah.. his own video kinda exposed him... oh well

    Nah, I know cause Nathon and shit.

    Eminem was pretty poor when he was born till like 12 years old. He was born in Kansas then he moved back and forth between 7mile and Kansas, but when he got older his mom moved to the suburbs, so when he was old ya he was middle class, but Em's mom was a single mother and she got married very young she was 15 so he couldn't of been to rich. Anyway thats what I was told.

    ^Eh that's actually true. Most people in developed countries can't fathom true poverty because our poor aren't starving in the street for the most part. But that's not only the US.. that goes for Canada and most of Europe too.

    I've seen the house eminem lived in in Warren, MI and it isn't bad at all.. I don't know if that's the house in question or not I haven't seen the video.

    wow he got a powerwheel for his daughter...he's rich as hell now. Comon guy. Powerwheels don't cost a thousand dollars. Plus that wasn't an teenager Eminem. He had a poor childhood. But does it really matter if he had a poor childhood or that he lived in a trailor park? If that's the reason why u like him then umm...I'm gonna leave it at that.

    You Americans dont know how good you get it.

    I mean the UK aint a money mine and alot of that money goes to other places before it does our own people but we know where we stand.

    Thats why its always laughable when americans complain about how they are living.

    In America on a wimp you can do anything you want. If you poor in any other county, you will stay poor and most of the time it wont be your fault.

    lol @ this thread, who the fuck cares. Comparing eminems life to his videos, and actually being concerned about the results you found....truly sad.

    Whatever then, any country that is considered a "developed country" (US, Canada, UK, France). Eastern europe is a different story. Sure we have our own version of poverty but we don't have it like they do in Haiti or Guatemala.
