Since the released of his Album in 1999, The Slim Shady LP, Eminem Definitely shocked his fans with his new look, he has matured a lot.

His appearance makes him almost unrecognizable to his followers, some are even doubting is well-being.

A lot of different reasons may be the cause, well, we did our research, from drug abuse to workouts, from family issues to problems in the neighborhood, and from no facial hair to beards, we are here to tell the truth why the ‘The Real Slim Shady’ appears different nowadays.

One of the reasons why Em looks different, is his facial hair, his beard. Since his first TV appearance and exposure, we used to Eminem as the rapper with neatly shaven face. But, Slim debuted his new look when he posted a picture on Instagram with Dr. Dre, Lamar, and the caption said “Just a couple of guys from Compton and one from Detroit. With a beard.”

Also, the fact that he went thru drugs and detox, he dramatically changed as he loss weight, and started looking more healthier than we used to. In an interview with Men’s Journal, Eminem clarified that he was waking up early, running for an hour before heading to the studio, and when coming back running for another hour then heading to bed, he said that running helped him sleeping and gave him a natural endorphin high.


The way his hair looks also played a part in making him appearing different. We used to him rocking it with his yellow hair, the conversation about being a White rapper stopped when we made his first appearance with yellow hair, but now, when promoting his new album, Eminem was fine with his natural brown color hair, so he looked much different and natural that we didn’t know what’s changed.

Being a father, raising 2 kids, Eminem covered in an interview that being sober was his first priority, and the moment he started realizing, again, how beautiful the trees are, he said that he felt like he was given a second chance to live again.

So now, we are looking at a healthier and matured sober Eminem, I think the way he looks now starts making sense, isn’t it?
