Eminem is one of the most successful rappers of all time. Born Marshall Bruce Mathers III on Oct. 17, 1972, he has been on top of his game for over two decades. His first album was released in 1996 and since then, he has achieved ten number-one albums on the Billboard 200 chart and has sold well over 100 million albums worldwide.

Eminem also holds a world record for "fastest hit rap-song" with "Godzila," featuring Juice WRLD, Hyperbeast reported. On the third verse of the track, Eminem raps so quickly he’s just broken his own record set by "Rap God" back in 2013 when he dropped "The Marshall Mathers LP 2." At the time, the rapper has broken down 9.6 syllables-per-second on the track's third verse.

For the new record, Eminem raps 229 words in 30 seconds on the third verse of "Godzilla" breaking out to 11.3 syllables-per-second.

His net worth is estimated to be around $230 million.
