According to one celebrity website, Eminem's net worth exceeds $120 million. This is largely down to his status as a multi-platinum-selling music artist.

How much money does Eminem have?
The rapper, whose real name is Marshall Mathers III, is a one of the most succesful recording artists of all time, despite his very humble origins.

In fact, until major music label Interscope first took an interest in Eminem in 1997, he was living in Warren, Michigan and working a minimum-wage job as a cook and dishwasher.

Following the success of his debut album, The Slim Shady LP (1999), Eminem was launched into super-stardom, and soon became a millionaire on the back of this record.

Is Eminem the richest rapper?
Considering all his success and notoriety, you'd be forgiven for assuming that Eminem is the most profitable rap artist around.

However, according to an article published by Forbes Magazine, Eminem doesn't even feature in the top 5 Hip-Hop/Rap Rich List (he was beaten by artists like Sean Diddy Combs and Jay Z).

And it doesn't look as if Eminem's fortune is going to take him to the top of the pile any time soon (as of 2012). Despite selling more records during this decade than any other artist on the planet, he's still number 9 in terms of the 2012 Forbes list of Hip Hop's top earners, which looks something like this:

  1. Dr. Dre
  2. Sean Diddy Combs
  3. Jay Z
  4. Kanye West
  5. Lil Wayne
  6. Drake
  7. Birdman
  8. Nicki Minaj
  9. Eminem
  10. Ludacris
