Also known as Slim Shady, he is definitely one of the best rappers of our time and this is all the more fascinating as he is a white man who is successful in an area that is mainly dominated by blacks. Before we dive into the subject of Eminem’s height, weight, and other measurements, here are some cool facts about him.
He was born Marshall Bruce Mathers III on October 17, 1972, as the son of Deborah R. Nelson Mathers and Marshall Bruce Mathers. The star got his stage name from his initials, Marshall Mathers (MM).
He had it pretty hard as a skinny white boy growing up in a predominantly black neighborhood, he was beaten regularly and once he was beaten so badly that he ended up in a coma for a week.
Long before he dreamed of becoming the popular Slim Shady, the star comic artist wanted to become a comic artist.
He may not be the trendiest artist at the moment, but when he makes music, people listen to it… a lot. The rapper had two of his albums in the top five best selling albums in 2000, The Eminem Show was the best selling album of 2002 and his album Recovery was the best selling album of 2010 worldwide.
Eminem became the father of daughter Hailie at the age of 23, whose mother Kim Scott was his high school sweetheart.
Now, this is a surprise, the star doesn’t know how to use the computer and go to the internet and he doesn’t want to learn. He says that in the end, he will just read all about himself and that he is too emotional for that.
That’s our cue to slow down our horses, he’s an interesting guy’ and we don’t want to get too far away from the real subject. So, let’s look at his body measurements, starting with Eminem’s height.
If the fact that he was a scrawny little boy does not reveal the fact that he is not a very tall adult, we do not know what he will do. The star is not so high at 5 feet 8 inches, which is far below the average American male size, which is 5 feet 10 inches.
Sources who have seen the rapper personally and even people who have not seen him up close would seriously ask to differ. They think he’s a few inches shorter, but then again, what else is new? It gets even better, occasionally the star claims to be 1.5 meters 9 inches tall, but most people think he is not an inch taller than 1.5 meters 7, some even go down to 1.5 meters 6 inches.
Whether he is 1.80 meters, 7, 8 or 9 years old, we all have to admit that his talent is the size of a basketball player. Here are the names of some other celebrities who are as tall as the artist. Rihanna, Kanye West, and Sean Penn are all the same height as Eminem.
The talented rapper currently weighs 68 kg, but this was not always the case, in 2007 Eminem weighed 108 kg (240 pounds). But he has not only eaten Big Mac’s and Kentucky Fried Chicken but also because of his drug addiction.
The star thought to himself: “I don’t know how I got so big, but I have ideas. The coating on the Vicodin and Valium that I’ve been taking for years leaves a hole in my stomach. To avoid stomach aches, I ate constantly – and badly.
According to the International Business Times, after nearly dying of an accidental methadone overdose in late 2007, the rapper decided to get clean. How did he achieve his amazing weight loss? He decided to replace an addiction with a less harmful one.
Eminem ran seventeen miles a day on a treadmill-eight mile and a half in the morning before he left, and another eight miles and a half when he got home. Besides running, the rapper also does Body Beast with free weights, bench, and a pull-up bar. Here’s what he has to say about this training routine.
It’s just me, so it helps that the body beast guy is overexcited. The routine is also pretty intense. “When I first did the legs, I couldn’t walk for two days. We’re just so glad he has a healthier attitude towards life.
