Eminem net worth:
Eminem net worth: Born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, Eminem has a net worth of about $190 million for 2017. He was born in Missouri but grew up between Missouri and Detroit, Michigan, in public housing projects where he was raised by his single mother.
Eminem attended high school in Warren Michigan where he failed three times in ninth grade and dropped out soon after at 17. Despite his rather poor performance at school, Eminem has always been fond of language, English in particular, and has been reported to spend time studying the dictionary.
He was able to express his passion for both language and music during the emerging battle rap era in the late 1980s. In the early 1990s, when rap music was mainly a black thing across the states, Eminem started to enter the Detroit rap scene. He became a frequent participant in rap battles where he proved he was highly skilled despite being sort of an outcast because of his bright blue eyes and pale white skin.
Eminem released “Infinite,” his first independent album in 1996 as a tribute to the birth of her daughter. During the 1997 Rap Olympics MC Battle in Los Angeles, Eminem became a runner-up. He then was able to release “The Slim Shady EP” a year later when he was discovered and signed by the legendary producer Dr. Dre.
Eminem’s early itinerant lifestyle has made a great impact on his personality, and it showed on several of his most controversial songs. In one of his songs, he accused his mother of prescription drugs addiction and subjecting him to both physical and emotional abuse. His mother, Deborah Mathers, denied the accusation and filed a $10 million defamation lawsuit against him in 1999.
In 2000, Eminem’s second studio album was released on “The Marshall Mathers LP.” It sold about 19 million copies around the world. The album showed his poetic talent as well as his range emotionally and artistically. Eminem’s song varies from heartbreakingly poignant, self-critical, violent, and maniacally funny. It was also nominated for the Album of the Year for the Grammy’s Best Rap Album Award.
Eminem has released countless albums over the years that went platinum. Album sales along with various tours and acting (8 mile) have helped Marshall go from the poor house to the penthouse.
