Eminem was obviously 5'7 (barefoot) in his prime. His mugshot has him at 5'8 due to him wearing shoes. People shrink when they age due to gravity decompressing on the spine so Eminem is now 5'6 I have proof. Look up "Eminem Kerry Washington interview" Kerry Washington is EXACTLY 5'4 she even said she doesn't see the point in lying about height because people will eventually find out. Eminem barely looks taller than her. He used to be 5'7 (barefoot) he is 5'6 now (barefoot) He is a pretty short guy.

Eminem is 5' 7" accept it. I am a strong 5' 8" and when I met him I'd estimate he was around an inch to an inch and a half shorter than me
Bullseye says on 19/Aug/14
Folks he clearly stands nothin' under 5ft 8, he can appear shorter sometimes because of the baggy clothes he wears and also because his posture is far from being impeccable. Look at the pics with his 'homie' Royce da 5'9 who is self-admittedly 5'9" (duh?), he only looks marginably shorter than him and in many pics he can actually look the same height.
Boxer says on 18/Aug/14
There is a video of Eminem and Mark Wahlberg on mtv TRL back in 1999 and Mark looks a bit taller eventhough the camera had a slight angle to it. Mark also seems to be about 5'7 from a clip where hes on the Ellen Degeneres Show. Ellen is 5'7 and Mark cant be a strong 5'8 if so.
Sometimes Em looks 5'8 and could even look 5'6 aswell. Its very tricky but theres also rapper Big sean that took a photo and Sean stands about 2 inches taller than Em (noting that Sean is 5'8. Eventhough Eminem stands closer to the camera, you can tell he is a short guy.
With all these points I'd say he's a strong 5'7.
italianoGuy says on 17/Aug/14
He is 1.72m.
target says on 16/Aug/14
In the mugshot of the gun license, he was wearing shoes. When people get their mugshot taken they don't take off their shoes and his shoes would have added 1 inch or so, I'd say bearfoot he's 5' 7"
jordan says on 11/Aug/14
eminem is the only rap god in the world
Kathryn says on 10/Aug/14
I can't believe everyone is still debating this. In his autobio from 2008, there's a copy of a gun permit he obtained years ago--it says he is 5'8"!
Kathryn says on 10/Aug/14
I can't believe everyone is arguing this. If you look in his 2008 autobiography, he put in a copy of his old gun license. It says right on the card he's 5'8".
Jack says on 25/Jul/14
5'7'75"(172 cm).
tommis says on 2/Jul/14
Kim's around 178m (5' 10") or 180m (5' 11"), Eminem is in the 5' 7" range so anywhere from 170m to 172m is about right to me.
176,2Tunman says on 30/Jun/14
looks 5'7-8 generally,shorter than 5'9 royce and rather a strong 4" shorter than 50 Cent.MAybe 5'7.5" is perfect for him.
Any opinion about Kim's height?she looks big for sure but 6'? hmm,I can't see more than 5'10-11.
max says on 29/Jun/14
He looks quite short to me tbh. He can't be over 5'7, he even looks 5'6 at times.
Yukie says on 25/Jun/14
Why does he looks 5,9 (175 cm) to me idk why?
Joe says on 21/Jun/14
solid 5'7, I don't see 5'8 for him, he is a bit shorter than nas, who is listed 5'8, which I agree with.

Eminem won't hit above 5'7.

He's like 5'6.75 to 5'7.25 guy
Emil 182.5 cm says on 17/Jun/14
@Rob
Could you consider downgrading him?
Peyman says on 30/May/14
Eminem : 5ft 7.25in- 171 is what I can live with
50 cent : a real 5ft 11in guy
I'm sure:
1st, Eminem is shorter than Rob
2nd, 50 cent is obviously less than a true 6footer
Joe says on 30/May/14
Eminem is not a lift wearer that is why he appears a lot shorter than Dr Dre or 50 cent, who are both lift wearers. I would list Dre and 50 at 6' and 5'11 respectively, Eminem isn't 5'7.5, he's only 5'7. End of the story.
Alex 6'0 says on 7/May/14
Whatever Fred Durst is they look about the exact same height both in sneakers.
Mathew says on 5/May/14
5'8" is too high for Eminem. I could agree with 5'7.5" but not over that.
Alex 6'0 says on 2/May/14
5'6 range is too short for him. He's not 5'8 either. I think he's a 5'7 guy
xItzmasonx says on 30/Apr/14
5ft 8in
carman says on 19/Apr/14
Eminem is not under or over 5-7, he could even be 5-7.5.

His mugshot had him at 5-8 due to wearing shoes, possibly with a half an inch to 1 inch heel. He's not as low as 5-6.5 though. I've even met him myself and he was noticeably a couple inches shorter than me and I'm 5-9. He's not over 5-7. Rob, please change the listing for Eminem's height.
Jeff says on 6/Apr/14
@ekt: If you have a very poor posture like eminem you can also shrink at 20, but you can regain it by some stetching, fixing the posture a.k.a spinal curvature.
ekt says on 3/Apr/14
jeff, what do you mean by peak height, Eminem is still too young to start shrinking, most men start shrinking around 50 very few start shrinking before that unless they have scoliosis or earlly osteoporosis or something
kool says on 24/Mar/14
Royce Da 5' 9 is actually 5' 8, but 5' 9 with shoes on. There was a video where they measured his height with his shoes and hat on and and they said 5'9 5' 8 bearfoot.

Eminem's 5' 7, even though he can look shorter than that at times, DEFINITELY not 5' 8. He's short.
em says on 21/Mar/14
James you cant be serious? eminem is not 5'5.5 he is at least 5'7 thats like saying shaq o neil is 5'9
smack says on 20/Mar/14
Eminem is 5' 7", look at him next to Royce Da 5' 9", clearly 5' 7"
Jeff says on 20/Mar/14
I don't think Eminem is5'8 now, at peak he was, he must be around strong 5'7 now, looks like a weak 5'8
Eminem weak 5'8
50 cent weak 6'(looks like solid 5'11 next to 5'10 akon)
Dr Dre 6'0.5( doesn't look like 6'1 next to strong 6'4 Snoop Dogg, believe me he's comfortably 4 inches shorter than him)
MD says on 18/Mar/14
Why do people even bother posting such ridiculous things? I'm looking at you, James.
dynamite100 says on 17/Mar/14
Actually james richardson...
These are the accurate heights:

Eminem - 5' 7"
Lil' Wayne - 5' 5"
50 Cent - 6' 0"
Justin Bieber - 5' 7" 1/2
Ludacris - 5' 6"
Dr. Dre - 6' 1"
James Richardson says on 16/Mar/14
There are the heights:
Eminem 5'5.5
Lil Wayne 5'2.5 LOL
50 cent 5'10.5
Justin Bieber 5'5.5 LOL
Ludacris 5'5
Dr Dre 5'11
stefan says on 13/Mar/14
5'7" on a good day...

People give him 5'8" because they like him. Just like they give Justin Bieber 5'6" while he's WAY closre to 5'8", because they dislike him.
ekt says on 26/Feb/14
LOL he may have mentioned that in Crack a Bottle, but remember, Eminem was overweight for a couple of years. He lost weight around 2010-2011 and got back to his weight in the 90's early 2000's. He's definitely around 140-145 maybe 150 the most, no more than that, he is too thin to be anywhere near 175
truthseeker says on 25/Feb/14
I met Shady in 2003, me and him were wearing the same exact nike shoes.

We were literally the exact same height, his shoulder and my shoulders were at the same length and so was our heads. I'm 5' 7" by the way, so there was no way on earth he was taller than that.

I remember his medical records in 2007 said that he was 5' 7" when he was hospitalized, it was in a magazine.
lol says on 17/Feb/14
in crack a bottle eminem claims to be 175 punds
rosie says on 14/Feb/14
Crack up. You've been debating eminem's height for two years. That has so made my day. Really?
Intent100 says on 14/Feb/14
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ON_H3XKtME8 this is an Interview from 1999 with eminem and mark walhberg its pretty much fact that marky mark is around 5 ft 7 maybe 8 at a push so how small does that make eminem? mark i think has about 2- 3 inches on him. his in his mid 20s in this Video aswell so its not like his grown either.
crisp says on 13/Feb/14
Definitely 5'7 or 5'7.5
ekt says on 11/Feb/14
seahawks, he is 5'7.5 maybe 5'8 the most, nowhere near 5'11. just because he has a thin frame, doesnt mean he is tall, not all thin people are tall that is just the myth of somatype. There are tons of tall stocky chubby people like Shaq for example
ekt says on 11/Feb/14
he definitely was around 140-145 ten years ago and he lost weight this year so I would say he is back around 145 maybe 150 the most
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 10/Feb/14
By Dr. Dre whose 6'.75-6'1":

Click Here

He looks 5'11" there.
MD says on 6/Feb/14
He may have been 140-145lbs ten years ago (though, I even doubt then), but he's definitely not thin by any defintion, these days. He may fool people with baggy clothes, but he's a fairly solidly built guy.
ekt says on 4/Feb/14
Eminem is not 160 pounds, he is a really thin dude and is only 5'8 maybe even 5'7.5. I would say 140-145 is more realistic. at his height 160 would be either chubby or very bulky
Balrog says on 1/Feb/14
Hahahaha nice answer Rob
KidAuthentic says on 31/Jan/14
I'm 5'10 1/2 and I have a 7'7 wingspan. Is That Awkward
[Editor Rob: not awkward if you were an Orangutan]
MD says on 31/Jan/14
Seahawksfan,

I don't want to get too much into weight talk, since weight is so variable and so much harder to guess, and because this is a height site. But, I don't see how in the world you thought 50 Cent is 235lbs. lol Back when he was preparing for his movie in 2010 - the one he lost 54lbs for - he was topping out at a max of 214lbs. 235lbs for him at his height would be literaly professional bodybuilding territory. He's always been muscular and then got pretty big, but he's never looked anywhere close to 235lbs.
Seahawksfan says on 30/Jan/14
Jay-Z: 6'1.75/187.5 CM and 185 pounds maybe?
Dr. Dre: 6'.75 and 225 pounds
50 Cent: 5'11.75-6' and like 235 pounds
Eminem: 5'8" and 160 pounds
truth says on 27/Jan/14
yeah I think 5ft7-5ft8 suits him, meaning he might be a strong 5ft7.
em says on 22/Jan/14
in rapgod musicvideo he looked short, its wierd how people that is 5"8 cann look shorter than my 5"6 dad, ik alot of people that is 5"5 they look like eminem and taller but he is 5"7 barefoot 5"8 with air
MD says on 21/Jan/14
Hey, Rob.

Since you think he can look under his listing, do you think he's one of the guys you could look into sometime this week to see if the listing doesn't need adjustment? I asked, because I'd been pretty content with this listing until recently. I've finally started to notice that he always looks just under average. A true 5'8" evening height guy could look average (like you have at times), but he always looks just a little short. Perhaps, he's a 5'8" morning height. I'm thinking he may be closer to 5'7", now, than 5'8".
Xxhiller says on 20/Jan/14
Rob do you think he is 5'6.5 because if you look at the video where he stood next to mark wahlberg, he looked like 1 inch sorter and mark wahlberg is like 5'7.5
[Editor Rob: he can look 5ft 7]
Zephyr says on 15/Jan/14
Yo eminem can be that height lil wayne said it in a song I'm 5"5' but I can 69 so he's 5"5' and eminem well idk
Emily says on 25/Dec/13
He can't be just 5'8. He's way too famous and rich to be this height. So i think his real height is Around 5'11. Waiting for the change in this listing.
silent j says on 9/Dec/13
By all honesty, Eminem looks 5'8 next to Dr. Dre and 50 Cent who are around 6'0-6'1. But he's DEFINITELTY not over 5'8. He COULD be 5'7, but that's it.

My dad is 6'0 and I look really short next to him (and i'm 5'7) so Em could be 5'8.
Mr. fucker says on 2/Dec/13
Eminem must be 5'6.7.He is short because his mother was a crackhead and gave him drugs to consume which perhaps stunted his growth.
The irony says on 23/Nov/13
He's 5'6-5'7 no more than that, so he's short but its pretty ironic because he used to diss other rappers about their height but he's just as short as them lol
1969razorblades says on 22/Nov/13
Eminem is 5'7, he was wearing shoes in his mugshot back in 2001 which added an inch, but yeah a definite 5'7/1.70m
cole says on 19/Nov/13
He looks 5'7 in 8 Mile next to a questionable 5'10ish Anthony Mackie. Looks under 5'8 with 50 Cent and Dre as well. Don't think he'll measure much more than 5'7.25 most of the day. Might be around the 5'8 mark straight out of bed.
Nick says on 11/Nov/13
He didn't actually say 5'7 but his exact words were " royce has about 2 inches on me" or something close to that, i'll try and find a link though.
MD says on 11/Nov/13
Nick,

Great find. If you could, provide us a link to the interview. That would great, and Rob would have to change the listed height.
Nick says on 8/Nov/13
Eminem is 5'7, he said it in an interview with royce online.
theheightman says on 7/Nov/13
he is 5'6.5 or 5'7 max because kid rock is 6'0 and he looks like 5-6 inches shorter in the photo that Matthew provided so pretty short
JD says on 6/Nov/13
5'5? No way. He IS taller than Wayne, but shorter than Royce who is 5'9. He's at least 5'6, but no taller than 5'8. And that person who is all disappointed, it's not like he's 5'2 or anything. He's on the short side for a guy, but not unnaturally so.
Mathew says on 6/Nov/13
Eminem is 5'7.5". Here he is next to Kid Rock: Click Here

Also, 50 Cent is 5'11" range, 5'11.5" at most. Dr. Dre is about 6'0", quite likely a strong 6' like 6'0.25", but he's not a legit 6'1".
bandit says on 5/Nov/13
Well, I can say is I got to meet him in cowboys station a few years ago, I got his autograph and I am 5'7 and we were the same height, I promise he is not over 5'7.
Seahawksfan says on 3/Nov/13
Here he is with 50 Cent on his left (6'0) and Dr. Dre on his right (6'1). Is it just me, or does Dr. Dre look more 6'0.5 next to 50 Cent next to 50 Cent than 6'1?

Click Here

Eminem passes for 5'7 there rather than 5'8. But here he is with Lil' Wayne (5'5.5):

Click Here

He looks way taller next to Lil' Wayne and could easily pass for 5'9-5'10 in that photo.
hughjackson says on 2/Nov/13
eminem is really short look at his picture with xzibit and he looks at least 3-4 inches shorter than xzibit and xzibit is 5'9.5 so im guessing hes at least 5'5 or 5'6 considering he always wears airs which gives him an 1 and a half so yeah aroung 5'5 to 5'6.5
Silent d says on 29/Oct/13
5 foot 8. Isn't he about the same height as rihanna?
KID Authentic says on 27/Oct/13
It's true he is 5'8 because in 8 mile he looked face to face with Papa Doc(Anthony Mackie) who's 5'10 and Em was only 2 inches shorter
Hanson88 says on 19/Oct/13
I remember there being Eminem's medical records in one of his books (can't remember, it was years ago) and most of his height was listed 5'6 and a half to 5'8.
conyeezy says on 14/Oct/13
John D90, great point. also compared to Kendrick, he's almost the same height with Kendrick slouching. em is 5'6.5 barefoot, maybe 5'7. He looks 2 inches shorter than rev and of course rev is 5'8. I doubt em is 5'8. But really who cares, lol. Would he be better if he was 5'10. of course not, just because these weird people are ashamed, or disappointed that there favorite rapper is short or favorite celebrity, that's ridiculous. Height is a human statistic, like hair and eye color, weight is a little different because that's controllable. Height when thinking bout it, has absolutely nothing to do with anything besides how the media portrays it. this world is insane lol. its like some people feel like height is the "superior trait". physically yes, but sometimes when people believe that it makes a person superior, it's as crazy as the Nazi Aryan superiority regime
gnops says on 12/Oct/13
not Emil lol, that was directed at the other dude. My mistake.
gnops says on 12/Oct/13
One inch is 2.54 cm, Emil.
truth says on 7/Oct/13
Eminem is a strong 5ft7 that gets listed at 5ft8.
BestRapper says on 9/Sep/13
Em is 5ft 6 - 5ft 6.75 max, see with Rick Rubin 5ft 11.75
Emil says on 5/Sep/13
IkYwOs Usual says on 24/Feb/13
Your all speaking about him being 5'7 and things like that, for poeple that don't live in the states or in a country where english is the motherthounge that way of speaking is impossible to understand, one foot is 30cm. one inch is 1.5cm so math no thanks. would be way easier to understand if you said he's hight in cm'rs :) btw im like 1.78 am i taller than the king?

1 foot: 30.48 cm
1 inch: 2.54 cm
12 inches equal 1 foot
Silent d says on 29/Aug/13
5 foot 8.
George says on 25/Aug/13
Solid 5' 7", compared to Royce da 5' 9" (who is obviously listed as 5' 9"). Click Here
Mathew says on 23/Aug/13
Eminem is 5'7.5" as he used to be listed here.
EltonJustice says on 8/Aug/13
Gee- in lighters he was alluded to being on the same track as Royce, NOT his specific height. Eminem is a strong 5'7 based on evidence but that would leave UK's Dec at a meager 5'4 ish. Which is believable given 6 flat Robbie Williams looks about a foot taller.
George says on 6/Aug/13
Compared to 5' 6" Elton John. Solid 5' 7", doesn't affect his ego and rhymes anyway, so who cares. Image: Click Here
gee says on 5/Aug/13
he's probably more like 5-7...5-9 is laughable..he said that in lighters...yeah he's 5-9 with thick shoes
Christofi says on 31/Jul/13
@Josh Eminem is 5'7, I wouldn't call him specifically short, I have a 5'2 male cousin and that's what I would call short, the 5' to 5'3 guys are the ones I feel sorry for.
JohnD90 says on 30/Jul/13
Eminem looks 1-2 inches smaller than Rev Run (5'8) here:

Which is funny because Em dissed Canibus' height a lot in their feud but Canibus looks taller than Em near Run: Click Here

Em is NEVER over 5'7

MaskDeMasque says on 16/Jun/13
@Swifty

LOL. Possibly my favourite celebheights quote yet. I don't think QB was trying to be rude and i love how you bleep out the f word but not the c word.

Anyway, i've always thought he was a legit 5'8.
who cares says on 16/Jun/13
Who cares about his height u guys must be so bored 2 be discussing his height its wots in his pants is the size that matters
lol says on 11/Jun/13

Rappers don't need height and neither do rock stars. Boots and Timberlands.

HIGH SCHOOL QB says on 9/Dec/12
IM 6'7" i think hed be up to my chest so about 5'9" or 5'10" im just guessing i may be wrong but i dont know

Your seriously trying to brag about your height? It would be horrible to be that height, shut the **** up kid. Eminem would kick your ass you lanky cunt.
dude says on 29/May/13
josh...his height is what made him the success who he is today
Josh says on 13/May/13
Em is 5'8? Oh man, that's so lame... I mean I love Eminem, don't get me wrong but for a person of his reputation that's pathetic. But my comment isn't fair at all, I have to be honest, what can he do, blame his mother and father...? I'm so disappointed.
true says on 11/May/13
he looks shorter than big sean who is 5'8 , i'd say 5'7.5
lol says on 12/Apr/13
I googled it and it said 5'10"
chaz says on 26/Mar/13
He's about 5'8 as when you look at him stood next to Royce da 5'9, who is, you guessed it 5,9, Em is just a little smaller
Madhurjya says on 18/Mar/13
Well, he's 5 feet 10 inches! Yeah, I'm quite sure... I am 5"8' and he seems few images taller..!

5\'11 barefoot says on 14/Feb/13
yeah about 5'7 is right ...with shoes on 5'8....
tommie says on 30/Jan/13
I remember back in the days around 2002 where he was described in the Bravo here in germany as 5 ft 10! there was a life size poster in. 5 ft 8 seems right maybe a tad more. btw. a very interesting person.
DirtyShoes says on 29/Jan/13
i think he's 5'7 since Marky Mark is 5'8...cus there's an inch or inch an a half difference, i doubt Mark's height thought he looks taller than 5'8
Will says on 22/Jan/13
Eminem is still 5ft 8. No he is not 5ft 9 however.
(S)ain\'t says on 4/Jan/13
he probably peaks out around 5'9'. he isn't a liar or short.
Vouile says on 17/Dec/12
5'8 sounds right. Mybe 5'9, no taller though.
HIGH SCHOOL QB says on 9/Dec/12
IM 6'7" i think hed be up to my chest so about 5'9" or 5'10" im just guessing i may be wrong but i dont know
Heart▀reak king says on 24/Nov/12
He may bd 5'8"
Reality says on 12/Nov/12
5'7 max?LOL He's 5'8 at night it's clear.
Lena says on 6/Nov/12
He's a short guy. 5'7-5'8 is about right.
Nick NB says on 30/Sep/12
After having watched '8 Mile', he appears to be 6'0" (1.83 m).

Looking deep into his intimidating large Blue Eyes is most intriguing as they prove to be a window into his soul; one learns that he is extremely dedicated in all that he does and additionally, he possesses an edge which ultimately renders him an impressive survivor with a great determination in life.

Furthermore, as well as being a very gifted music artist and a safe guy, he's a fairly impressive actor too!
DirtyShoe says on 26/Sep/12
wait a min guys...if Mark Wahlberg 5' 7' - 5' 8'
then how in the hell Eminem 5' 8 - 5' 9' !!!! which the fact is Mark is taller than Em in 1 to 1.5 inch...so i think Eminem is 5' 7' MAXIMUM
Dan says on 21/Sep/12
I'm 5'11", he's up to my eyes, so he's 5'7.5" MAX and 5'7" MIN.
johnnyfive says on 7/Sep/12
Eminem always seemed like a strong 5'7 to me. Never 5'9, that height always seemed to tall for him. He does like to slouch and doesn't care about his height or looking tall. This height is pretty much spot on.
karan says on 5/Sep/12
