...lot of people that want to be rappers but they dont try to get there name out to the public they just sit at home write songs record them on there computer and send them to there friends like thats going to change anything. Instead of trying to get studio time or going to clubs and other places and asking if they can perform and do gigs. Thats the way eminem did it, he went to underground clubs, rap contests, radio stations trying to get people to notice him and hoping that somone important notices him and it happend.
Eminem was and is a determind to be the best he can be. His not like those commercial rappers that only rap about cars diamonds and girls but he raps about his life and things his been through. I think the reason alot of people like eminem is because he raps about things everyone can relate to, not everyone can relate to having alot of cars and being rich after awhile of listening to songs like that you get tired of it. But eminems lyrics are deep and i think alot of kids out there can relate to eminems lyrics. That is how eminem got into the business and made is way all the way up to the top.
