Eminem Memoir Headed For Publication

Eminem fans will get a personal account of what makes the rapper tick as plans are underway to publish a forthcoming memoir.

Titled The Way I Am, the book will feature numerous unseen photographs, hand-drawn art, sketches for lyrics and notes form journals.

Eminem will pen the introduction and provide a present-day narrative for the book, which is described as a visual and written memoir.

The Way I Am comes as the latest endeavor for the rapper, who has sold 80 million records worldwide and earned an Oscar for Best Original Song for his hit song “Lose Yourself.”

According to Ian Preece, a senior commissioning editor for the book’s publisher the Orion Publishing Group, the work will offer a truthful look at Eminem that conflicts with public perception.

"Because of where he is from, people think they know where he is at, what kind of person he really is,” said Preece, who believes The Way I Am will be "one of the books of the year.”

“This book cuts through all that and gets to the source,” Preece promised.

The Way I Am is set to be published on Oct. 16.
