Look at this kid..
He sits in his comer all day reading comic books and
drawing action heroes, because he has no friends and
hates being outside.
His father led him when he was ta months old, and he
has been moving with his mother from one place to
another for more than 20 times.
He has been bullied a tot, which one time resulted in
being hit on the head, and lying in a coma for ft) days.
At the age of , his uncle and probably his best friend,
who was also " years old killed himself, tea ving him
devastated.
When he finaly found something he loved, others around
him tried to hold him back because he did not fit the
scene as a white boy. Even his girlfriend at that time tried
to stop him.
Despite all of these people trying to hold him back, he did
not quit, gathering more fame as he was getting better and
better. Unfortunatly this fame was also the cause for
another set back, as he got addicted to Vicodin, Ambien,
Valium and Methadone.
As if this wasnt enough, another best friend of his got
killed by a gunshot wound at the age of 32.
This man, who was barely able to shop at Kmart when he
was growing up, now ownes the mansion of the former
CEO of Kmart.
Despite of having everything against him in his life, he did
not quit, believing in his latents and doing what he loves.
1. And to the rest of the world, god gave you the shoes
That fit you, so put 'em on and wear 'em"

Like him or dislike him, Like Rap or dislike rap, you have to respect the man's drive and lyrical ability.

Marshal Mathers' life exemplifies everything the american dream is supposed to be. He was born into poverty, **** on his entire life, and through hard work and perseverance he not only succeeded in the music scene, he spread his influence to style, movies, television, and producing.

He went from being the goofy little white kid with no money and a drug addict mom to being a millionaire rapper, songwriter, movie star, and producer. He defied the odds that were set against him and did not give up on his dreams.

Summed up, his success proves that with enough determination and hard work, you can do anything.

Other people who share similar success stories:

Bill Clinton: Born into a low class, worked his ass off, became a rhodes scholar and eventually president.

Oprah Winfrey: Literally wore a potato sack to school, is now one of the most powerful and influential women on earth.

John D. Rockefeller:One of six children with a deadbeat dad. Worked his ass off and did oil refinery.

Ozzy Osbourne:one of five kids, both parents blue collar. You know who he is now.

J.K. Rowling: She was on welfare when she started the Harry Potter books.

Chris Gardner: Ever see the Pursuit of Happyness? The guy Will Smith played.

Jim Carrey: His father worked in a factory, but hours started getting cut. Jim worked 8 hours a day at a factory while still attending high school to help support his family. He dropped out of school to do sitcoms.

But for those 1% or even less of people who make it, there are 99% of people who have to live those **** lives in poverty for their whole life.

The American dream is a lie just to give people false hope that they can change social classes/

Wrong. It isn't enough to just work hard. You have to work for something greater than what you are. You can't just sit and work your dead-end job and never aspire to something greater. I work in a kitchen now, but I'm not content to do that forever. In January, I'm enrolling in police academy to be a probation officer. I've already got the bachelor's degree I need. I plan to eventually be commissioner or at the very least, sheriff.

The American Dream requires that you WORK, and ASPIRE. Without aspiration and perspiration, you will remain poor. Eminem was a dishwasher 20 years ago. He wasn't ok with that. He made himself better.

Being Cynical is fine, being ******* ignorant is completely different. The american dream is very much alive. You just have to WORK FOR IT. It was never even implied that success was easy to achieve.

Only 3% of children in the lowest rung of poverty make it to the top 10% of society. Working hard and believing you can become better isn't the only things that will make the American Dream come true.

You need a break, someone to give you an opportunity. Being good isn't enough, and for Eminem that was Dr. Dre. Another example is Micheal Oher who now plays OL for the Baltimore Ravens.

Being good isn't enough, you need to have the social capital to make it. The American Dream may happen, but it's NOT something that's always going to happen. In fact, very rarely does it happen and it's not done just from hard work and perseverance. It's just like how education is the great equalizer. No matter your background, going to school puts you on equal ground. Yeah, on paper these ideas look great, but in reality they aren't true.

Waiting for someone to give you an opportunity is lazy and stupid. If you refuse to look at the world with reason, and instead through a veil of self-entitlement, you will never aspire to anything in life. If you refuse to attempt to aspire to greatness, and instead wait for someone to cut down the taller stalks so your smaller stalk can feel sunlight, you are not embracing life. You are rejecting it.

Your life is yours and yours alone. Rise up and live it.

The 99% that don't make it didn't try hard enough. Nobody ever claimed that the American Dream was easy to achieve. The thing about being born into poverty is that you either accept your circumstances early on and never aspire to anything with any real effort, or you hate your circumstances so much that you work and work and don't let anything stop you from getting where you want to be. Not many people have it in them to do that.

I'm sorry, but you have to be truly ignorant to believe that if you work hard and aspire to something, there is a 100% chance, complete statistical certainty, that you will be successful in life.

Well his father wasn't around and made him and his mother move in with Wayne's paternal grandmother even though he was never around, he did go once in a while but only to beat Wayne's mom. Lil Wayne was always an honor student and when he was just 9 he was rapping against people twice his age and showing them up so cash money records took him in. Lil Wayne grew up in New Orleans so he was in one of the toughest parts of the country. When he was 12 he found his mother's handgun and was playing around with it while listening to music and accidentally shot himself in the chest, he called the police and was almost not rescued because they were knocking on the door and couldn't hear anything but loud music but he managed to drag himself to the front door and call for help. His mother met a man that was Lil Wayne's first father figure but shortly died after being shot being some men (Lil Wayne made a song dedicated to him) . After that Lil Wayne figured he needed to be the man and decided to drop out on pursuit his rap career, he started officially rapping with the Hot Boys and he invented the word "Bling" later Lil Wayne wanted to become solo and came out with a hit when he was 17 and became a millionare, he gave his first big check to his mother so she can move out of New Orleans to a much better place. A few years later Lil Wayne decided that he can't make music that's real if it's written down so he ripped up his lyric book and hasn't written since. When Katrina hit New Orleans he didn't join any of those big charities because he said that the money wasn't really going to New Orleans, he went to New Orleans himself and helped rebuild the schools and neighborhoods. I don't know man, I have a lot of respect for Wayne, he seems more didcated than Eminem.

Lil wayne is a major setback in rap. hence, ***** rhymes with *****. I don't believe a multi millionaire would get their hands dirty, and go in themselves,(usually) especially when they are too busy making new torture devices he calls "songs"

Lil Wayne has fallen of he was a lot better a few years ago, he can still rap from the heart but it's much more rare, as for the laughing, that just something people exaggerate about and you've never really cared anough to prove that he actually laughs as much as haters say he does.

Eminem hasn't been high when he wrote a song since Encore
Eminem writes poetry, have you heard any of his songs, like Beautiful?
When is the last time Lil Wayne wrote anything as emotionally moving an stunning as that?

Because I can't think of anything.

Some of his lyrics are stupid, but a good deal of his lyrics are actually really good which really distinguishes him from most rappers ( whose lyrics are all stupid). You're just picking one line that sounds stupid (which you can pretty much do for any band/artist) (listen to Sing for the moment or Stan)
