Early life

Marcel Thomas Andreas Eris, “Monte” for short, was born and raised on March 2, 1988 in Buxtehude in Germany. In his childhood Marcel Eris spent a lot of time with his grandparents because his parents lived separately. He got on the wrong track at an early age and committed crimes such as theft, burglary and credit card fraud – money that he needed to finance his drug addiction.

In addition to a school-leaving certificate, MontanaBlack can also train as a retail salesman.

The book has almost 270 pages and is considered one of the most successful books by the Munich-based Riva publishing house, in which Oliver Kahn’s autobiography has also been published. In the non-fiction category, the title “MontanaBlack – from junkie to YouTuber” was number one on the bestseller lists for several weeks. In the meantime Marcel Eris earns his money in addition to Youtube and Twitch through sponsoring, advertising deals, book sales and with his own merchandise shop “Get on my Lvl”. In his merchandise shop Marcel Eris sells high quality products such as T-shirts, hoodies, caps, jewelry, cell phone cases and much more. Marcel Eris’ total assets are estimated at around 800,000 euros. In the meantime, he has also bought two condominiums and his own house.
