Reports are surfacing about the rapper, Eminem, becoming a born again Christian and turning his life over to the hands of Christ. According to Gossip Cop, the rapper will no longer succumb to the rigors and expectations performers in the industry are facing today. The Christian Post’s blog has further stated that Eminem is “building a relationship with God and using that to help him spiritually, and with his addiction problems.”
Are these rumors or facts, though? Fans have been watching Eminem go through some impressive transformations since the inception of his career ranging from embracing maturity to tackling sobriety. Therefore, while the report may come off as rumor to some, others are open-minded to the fact that the rapper could be taking this turn in his life.
I think what cinches the deal, though, is a Detroit source claiming to have seen Eminem become born again firsthand. According to AllHipHop.com, the source from Detroit “suggested that is has had an impact on business and some of the acts, but mostly on his refusal to conform to what his expected of him from the music game.” Eminem’s daughter is growing up right before his eyes and, as she matures, he is also. Therefore, this decision is one that’s likely to impact him in many areas of her personal and professional life.
Fans can’t help feeling skeptical following these reports, especially those centered around him leaving the music industry completely. While many have their doubts, that doesn’t mean it won’t happen. We’ll have to wait and see what the future holds for Eminem and his career.
