There are very few musicians in the world who can boast of the same global appeal that Eminem has enjoyed. Yes, Eminem is a global superstar, a Hollywood Hall of Famer, a double-platinum accolade holder, and a globally acclaimed rap god ("Eminem Rap god"). To put things in perspective, one of his songs, "Not Afraid", has been viewed over 1.5 billion times on youtube (I mean over One billion and 500 million times). That is a feat that very few musical artists can boast of. And to think that his music career only began officially in 1999 (just over 20 years ago) and he has achieved this much is truly amazing. The following section will tackle the issue of Eminem's net worth and through what means we believed he amassed all that wealth.
Eminem Net Worth
Eminem is by far one of the richest musicians ever. In fact, he ranks among the top 5 wealthiest hip hop superstars in the business, only behind the likes of Diddy, Dr Dre, Kanye West and Jay Z. Now to the numbers, Eminem is estimated to be worth over $230 million (equivalent to about ₦94.33 billion). That makes him several miles wealthier than some of the Richest Businessmen in Nigeria.
The big question now is, how did he amass such a level of wealth in just over 2 decades? Let's explore this together starting from the number of albums the superstar has sold. Eminem in his 22-year music career has released about 11 studio albums, with 5 of those albums hitting Diamond certification and over 9 of those hitting platinum certification according to data seen on www.chartmasters.org. The platinum certification implies that over 1 million of the albums have been sold while diamond certification implies over 10 million copies sold.

Interestingly, Eminem has sold about million copies of his album. Eminem best album in terms of sales volume is the 2000 Album "Marshall Mathers LP" which sold over 23.4 million copies. Now considering that each sold for at least $10, then you can estimate how much he has made from album sales. More than that, Eminem has been a very shrewd businessman, investing wisely in several ventures in the US and across the globe. He has also sold out several shows while on tour across the globe, from Sydney to California. In 2019 alone, Forbes estimated that he ranked in about $50 million in earnings.
Eminem Cars and Houses
Started with Eminem's house, the music superstar reportedly owns about 2 homes. One is the Michigan Clinton Township Mansion which is reportedly worth about $2 million. He also reportedly owns a lovely mansion in Marco Island which sources say is worth about $12.95 million. Eminem is said to have owned the KMart mansion which was a six acres property that consisted of 10 bathrooms and six bedrooms, a waterfall, a basketball and tennis court, etc. He bought the Oakland Township property for about $3.75 million but sold it for about $2 million in 2017.

Eminem was born in Missouri, a midwestern state in the United States of America. He was born Marshall Bruce Mathers III to parents Deborah Mathers and Marshall Mathers Jr. on Tuesday 17th of October 1972. So, you can now do the calculations and guess Eminem age. Thus, Eminem is a year shy of 50 years.
Anyways, Eminem didn't really have the best of childhood. In fact, he dropped out of school in the 9th grade after repeating that level 3 times. Interestingly, he was well above that class in terms of age at that time, because he and his mom were always on the move. According to Eminem,
I would change schools two, three times a year
That was probably the roughest part about it all

Unfortunately, he never really had a chance to get to know his father, who had abandoned them when he was still a baby and had to spend his early life with his mom. By 1989, Deborah Mathers had thrown Eminem out of her home, for dropping out of school. At this time, Eminem was already romantically involved with Kim Ann Scott and would begin cohabiting with her after being chased out by his mom.
Being poor academically did not stop Eminem from pursuing his passion for rapping. He was always passionate about the use of the English language to express his feeling. No wonder that by 1996, Eminem had already dropped his first studio album titled "Infinite". Unfortunately, the album didn't perform so well and was a flop. This was just a year after the budding rapper welcomes a daughter with partner Kim.
