Are you curious about how Eminem and Drake became famous, as well as where all of their wealth came from? If that’s the case, this is the quiz for you, and you’ll find all the answers below.
Eminem, the King of Rap
It’s no surprise that Eminem has been dubbed the “rap God” because he is one of the best-selling artists in the world and has recorded some of the nastiest diss recordings ever. Eminem is the world’s fifth-richest rapper, but he didn’t get there without a fight.
Marshall Bruce Mathers, better known by his stage name Eminem, rose to notoriety in early 1999 with the release of his album The Real Slim Shady LP.
The record cleared the door for Eminem’s violent alter ego, Slim Shady, to emerge, giving him the ability to rap about very personal, sometimes taboo themes with wrath in his voice.
The album spent 100 weeks at number two on the Billboard 200 after debuting at number two.
The Real Slim Shady LP had become one of the most successful albums by the end of the year, having been certified platinum three times for sales of over one million copies. The album had sold 10 million copies globally by 2019, with 7 million of those sales occurring in the United States alone.
Eminem has had at least 10 number one hits on the Billboard 200 chart and over 20 top ten hits on the Hot 100 chart during his career. Eminem has also received at least 15 Grammy Awards.
Eminem doesn’t make all of his money from music; he also has sponsorship deals and makes money from production, writing, and directing.
Drake is a lyrical genius.
Drake is regarded as one of the most influential hip-hop musicians of his generation and a lyrical genius.
Drake has at least 40 top ten hits on the Billboard Hot 100, with at least seven of them reaching number one. Drake is the world’s eighth richest rapper, trailing only Eminem in wealth. While Eminem is wealthier, Drake has more number-one singles.
Drake, whose real name is Aubrey Drake Graham, rose to fame after appearing on Degrassi: The Next Generation in 2001.
Drake’s debut mixtape, Room For Improvement, was released just five years later in 2006, yet it was only the beginning of his lucrative rap music career.
Drake’s music career didn’t really take off until 2009 when he released the hit single Best I Ever Had off his album Thank Me Later. Drake’s first top ten hit was Best I Ever Had.
Drake has become known for a number of hit singles, including Hotline Bling, Work with Rihanna, God’s Plan, Take Care featuring Rihanna, and many others, since breaking through.
Drake has also won at least three Grammy Awards and has been nominated for a slew of other honors.
Drake, like Eminem, makes money from other commercial activities rather than exclusively on his music.
Drake has his own apparel line, October’s Very Own, as well as his own record label and radio station, and he also makes money from real estate assets.
