Marshall Mathers turns the big 4-0 today. It might come as a surprise, but Em was 27 years old by the time his debut The Slim Shady LP was released in 1999, making him less than a year younger than his fellow Dr. Dre protege, Snoop Dogg. In honor of his special day, and our subsequent shock to find he’s been around longer than Saturday Night Live, meet an entire list of stars and music personalities whose birth certificates cause us to do a double take.
