How tall is Eminem? Eminem is 5 feet, 8 inches tall, by most accounts, although some sources grant Slim Shady some extra height and list him at 5 feet, 9 inches or even 5 feet, 10 inches. If Em’s height isn’t actually 5 feet, 8 inches, it speaks poorly to the measuring skills of police in Royal Oak, Mich. On his official Royal Oak mug shot, taken in 2000, when he was arrested on gun charges, Marshall Mathers is listed as 5 feet, 8 inches, so that’s probably correct.

Eminem’s 5-foot, 8-inch frame means he’s one of the shorter rappers in the game. He’s shorter than T.I. and Kanye West (both 5 feet, 9 inches), Jay-Z and Drake (both 6 feet, 2 inches), and Snoop Dogg (6 feet, 4 inches). Shady does, however, tower over Lil Wayne, who stands a mere 5 feet, 5.5 inches.

What Shady lacks in inches he makes up for in talent and dollars. According to Billboard, he’s the best-selling artist of the 2000s, and to date, the Detroit MC has sold more than 90 million albums worldwide. He also proved himself as an actor, and in 2002, he starred in the hit film 8 Mile. Eminem recorded numerous songs for that movie’s soundtrack, and the smash “Lose Yourself” earned an Academy Award, making him the first rapper to win an Oscar.
Oscar statues, if anyone was wondering, stand 13.5 inches tall.
