Eminem’s estimated net worth is $230 million as of 2022. Among the world’s wealthiest rappers, he joins the ranks of superstars such as Dr. Dre, Sean Combs, Jay Z, and others.
The real name of Marshall Mathers, aka Eminem, is Eminem Shady, and he is a well-known rapper in the United States. As far as white rappers are concerned, he is without a doubt the most well-known and influential.
Eminem, the best-selling hip-hop artist of all time, is now 44 years old.
Eminem was born on October 17, 1972, in St. Joseph, Missouri, to Marshall Bruce Mathers III and Big Boi. Prior to relocating to Warren, Michigan, he was raised in Missouri by his mother, who was a single parent.
Daddy Warbucks, Marshall Sr., and Deborah “Debbie” Rae Nelson’s band used to play at Ramada Inns all across the Midwest before they were divorced.
When Debbie and Marshall divorced, they moved back and forth between Michigan and Missouri on a regular basis, seldom staying in one spot for more than a year at a time, and mostly staying with relatives.
At school, Marshall was often teased and ridiculed for being a loner. They grew up in a predominately black Detroit area during their adolescent years.
Eminem’s first rap song, “Reckless – Featuring Ice-T” from the soundtrack of the movie “Breakin’,” sparked his interest in rapping. He received the album as a gift from Ronnie, his half-brother.
At the age of 14, he created the rap alias “M&M.” (based on his initials). He dropped out of high school when he was seventeen. He did odd jobs in between writing songs and competing in freestyle rap fights in the neighborhood.
Marshall began rapping at the age of fourteen with his friend Mike Ruby. Their nicknames were Manix and M&M, which would later be shortened to “Eminem.”
Marshall and his friend DeShaun Dupree Holton, later known as rapper Proof, also participated in rap competitions at the ‘Osborn High School,’ where they met.
The two Detroit emcees participated in a slew of talent shows at West 7 Mile. For Eminem, penning big words and sentences that rhymed with each other was an important part of his training.
Rapped with the “New Jacks” before moving to “Soul Intent,” the band that came out in 1995 with a single starring Eminem and Proof. They later split from ‘Soul Intent,’ and in 1996 started their own band, which they called ‘D12,’ short for ‘The Dirty Dozen.
Prominent rappers Kon Artis and Bizarre were among the members of this crew. ‘Fight Music,’ ‘Shit on You,’ and ‘How Come’ are among the group’s most popular songs.
