Eminem may now be one of the world’s highest selling and most respected artists, but there was once a time when he was struggling to earn a bit of respect in Detroit. Eminem even revealed few times that getting booed of stage was so traumatic for him that he almost gave up.

The first time I rapped in front of actual people that mattered, in a club, I got booed. And it was very traumatic for me. I just remember it being so f**king traumatic, and I think I went home and I was like, man, I quit. And you know a week later, a day later, an hour later I got the urge, and I was like, I gotta get up, I gotta do it again.

I certainly feel like if it was not for Rap and Hip-Hop, obviously, I would not be here, but it gave me my voice, it gave me my outlook, it gave me strength, you know what I came back from, overdose and a whole load of shit – without rap I would not be able to do a f**king thing.” told Eminem to The List magazine back in 2012.

Few hours ago, a never before seen footage from 1992 of Eminem getting booed off stage has emerged online. The uploader Emzee Slim says:

At what seems to be an open-mic event, Eminem gets booed off the stage by a tough crowd at The Rhythm Kitchen in downtown Detroit. Eminem was spitting a verse from the Soul Intent song, ‘What Color is Soul?’ Pay attention to the guy in the white hoodie on the right. Twice in this clip, he makes shooting gestures towards Eminem. This should give you a good idea of what Detroit was like back then and the lack of respect any white MC would get.
