A Gallery Of Rappers That Are 40 Years Old Like Eminem

Eminem has come a LONG way. The “Hi My Name Is” rapper has gone from the underground, to the top of the charts, to the big screen, to rehab, and back again. When we think back on it, it’s actually pretty shocking that this guy is really 40 years old now. Long gone are the days of bleached-blonde hair, poppin vicodin, xanax, ecstasy, oxycotin, and washing it down with a bottle of vodka. Today, Marshall is clean, sober, and focused on being a dad to his daughter Hailie and his adopted daughter Alaina (“Laney” as he refers to her, is his ex-wife Kim’s twin sister’s daughter).

As we thought about Marshall turning the big 4-0 we thought about the other 40 year-old rappers in the game today. Some of these MCs are rich and successful, and some of them are livin’ that struggle life HEAVY.

Hit the flipper to take at some of Em’s aging, rhymes-spittin’ peers, and get caught up on what they are doing with themselves today.
