So what is Eminem’s net worth? You might also know him as Slim Shady, B-Rabbit, or maybe by his real name Marshall Bruce Mathers III.
Born in 1972 in Missouri, Eminem never knew his father, who abandoned the family when he was an infant. Eminem grew up with his mother and bounced between Missouri and Detroit, spending large chunks of time in public housing projects.
His life was certainly not stable and having to move between the states meant changing schools on a constant basis. Eminem didn’t have many close friends when he was a child, which is why he developed such anger and pain inside him.
The rapper failed the ninth grade three times before finally dropping out of school at the age of 17. He had trouble focusing on most subjects, but he did excel in English. He read comic books and even studied the dictionary.
That’s when he discovered he could use his gift of language to express himself through rap. Even though rap music at the time was almost exclusively produced by black people, Eminem jumped in the Detroit rap scene and started battle rapping.
Emenim was like the Conor McGregor of the street scene. He was incredibly skilled and quickly became one of the most respected figures in Detroit’s underground rap scene.
In 1996, one year after his daughter was born, Eminem released his first independent rap album titled Infinite. Unlike Bill Gate‘s massive success at his first project, the album failed to gain national attention due to its poor recording quality and direction.
One year later, he released The Slim Shady EP, which was discovered by Dr. Dre, the legendary rap figure.
Dre was so impressed by the album that he signed him to his Interscope Records label. After two years of working directly with Dre, Eminem released The Slim Shady LP. It was a huge success, selling over three million copies, and it Eminem’s net worth began to raise.
From there, his career took off, and his second studio album sold over 19 million copies worldwide and won the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album. In 2002, Eminem showed off his acting skills in ‘8 Mile’ which was loosely based on his life, and just like his music, the film was a massive success. He won the Academy Award for Best Original Song.
All this success has made Eminem a very rich man. Eminem’s net worth is reportedly around $210 million, up to $30 million from the last report a year ago. He makes an estimated $10 to $15 million a year. It’s quite the change from his days growing up in a trailer park with his mother.
