Rapper, Eminem Tells Why Fatherhood Is His Greatest Accomplishment In Life

One of the world’s greatest rappers, Marshall Bruce Mathers aka Eminem, has shared on what family means to him, and why raising kids is his greatest achievement ever. The dad-of-three,47, opened up about how feeling worthless and ‘not good enough’ as a child fueled his determination to excel at the one thing he liked to do- rap music; but, that’s not all. His experiences shaped his views on family and parenting, and now, the rapper says having a lot of money does not bring fulfillment.

Eminem, a 15 time Grammy Award winner, gushed over his daughter Hailie Mathers, 24, during Mike Tyson’s Hotboxin podcast and said raising her and two of his nieces was his greatest accomplishment.

Eminem speaking with boxer, Mike Tyson on his Hotboxin podcast,said;

‘No babies, she has a boyfriend, but she’s doing good. She’s made me proud for sure. She’s graduated from college.’

‘I have a niece that I have helped raise too that’s pretty much like a daughter to me, and she is 26,’

the Oscar winner added during his interview with Tyson.

‘And I have a younger one that’s 17 now.

So when I think about my accomplishments, that’s probably the thing I’m the most proud of is being able to raise kids.’

‘It’s important to keep your kids grounded when they’re in a situation like I have, it’s very important.’

He explained that he struggled during his childhood and that money doesn’t buy happiness.

‘As a kid never felt like I was good enough, no matter what I did,’

he said.

‘It’s a psychological thing for anyone who feels worthless in this world. Anybody that feels that and then finds something they’re actually good at, that’s what makes somebody go for that so hard.’

Adding:

People also think too that money just buys happiness, [but] that absolutely is not the truth. You’ve got to be right inside otherwise none of this s–t means nothing. ‘
