Drake and Eminem are two of the most famous rappers in the music industry, and they have already solidified their names in the record books. Both accumulated massive fortunes throughout their careers, but which of the two is the richer rapper?

As of 2021, Drake has an estimated net worth of $200 million and earns roughly $70 million annually from his various endeavors. The Canadian-born rapper is one of the highest-paid entertainers worldwide, as per Celebrity Net Worth.

To date, Drake also holds the record for the most number of awards in Billboard history with 27 trophies under his name. Since his debut, the rapper has scored eight No. 1 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and has released nine No. 1 albums, according to South China Morning Post.

Drake, sometimes called “Drizzy,” also became an ambassador for the Toronto Raptors in 2013, where he signed on to rebrand the team’s image. He is also one of the few artists not severely affected by the coronavirus pandemic, as he was still able to release his mixtape, entitled “Dark Lane Demo Tapes,” in late April 2020, Forbes reported.

On the other hand, Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is one of the most iconic names in the rap industry who has an estimated net worth of $230 million as of 2021. In any given year, the music artist, also known as “Slim Shady,” can earn up to $20 million, and the figure can jump to $30 million and even $50 million when he does tours to promote his albums, a separate Celebrity Net Worth report said.

Throughout his rapping career so far, Eminem has won 15 Grammy Awards, eight American Music Awards, 17 Billboard Awards and an Academy Award, which he received for his song “Lose Yourself” from his “8 Mile” soundtrack. Eminem’s 10th studio album, entitled “Kamikaze,” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in 2018, as per Forbes.

As of May 2021, Eminem has sold $107.5 million worth of digital singles, only topped by a handful of other music artists, including Drake. The majority of Slim Shady’s greater net worth over Drizzy comes from his other endeavors, including his Shady Records record label and his original music featured in the 2002 movie “8 Mile” that grossed $242.9 million at the box office from a humble budget of $41 million, potentially making him the richer rapper, according to Cosmopolitan.
