Having a bigger responsibility, Eminem got a job at St. Claire Shores as a bartender, a job he combined with his rapping career. He was often involved in lots of rap battle at St. Claire and one day he caught the attention of Marky Bass who was a local producer at the time.

However, the young rapper was on the verge of taking his career to the next level, when Kim unexpectedly took in and became pregnant with Eminem’s child.
