Eminem is 44. Just take a second with that piece of knowledge.

He released his first independent album two decades ago, and has been a pop-culture mainstay ever since. Still, Em's also managed to maintain a relatively hidden private life, so seeing the real life-footage of people mentioned in his songs is always such a trip.

Today, footage of him celebrating a young birthday with his family (we're guessing this is pre-fame because of the glasses in the background) resurfaced online today.

Another great vintage clip from the rapper's past is this visit to his old house.

Happy 44th, Em.
