Days after crowning himself rap’s god, hip-hop superstar Eminem can now don the title “Birthday Boy” after turning 41 years old today (October 17).
According to reports, Slim Shady shares the same birthday as The Fugees’ Wyclef Jean amongst other celebrities.
He stopped by the ESPN broadcast booth a few weeks ago and gave one of television’s more awkward interviews in awhile. He recently released “Rap God,” a single that is generating controversy for what some deem to be offensive, homophobic lyrics. He’ll perform as the musical guest on the November 2nd edition of Saturday Night Live and he’ll drop a new album (“The Marshall Mathers LP 2″) on November 5th. Like we said: Eminem is back. And he’s also turning 41 years old today! So send in your very best wishes to the artist and feel free to do the same for these other famous people that are also a year older on October 17: Jacob Artist (21) Wyclef Jean (44) Ziggy Marley (45) Alan Jackson (55) (The Hollywood Gossip)
Slim’s longtime manager Paul Rosenberg made sure to acknowledge the big day.
