Eminem, who reportedly has a ninth album on the way – possibly to be released very soon – is a pretty angry dude. Weirdly, at 45 (his birthday is today – October 17), with a massively successful career to his name and having played an undeniable role in changing hip-hop, he seems angrier than ever before. Late period Slim Shady appears even more vexed than the young, hungry Slim Shady who was spittin’ on your onion rings in the early noughties. For instance: see the video for 2010’s Rihanna-featuring ‘Love The Way You Lie’, which the rapper glowers through like he’s received a series of parking tickets and then stood, barefoot, on a Lego brick. Yes, throughout his career Em has perfected the art of the angry face, and here are 10 that will keep you awake at night.
