This man help give us the modern age, a genius without a doubt who was robbed by Edision as well as other power brokers of the day. I admire him not only for his incredible mind but for a character that was so dedicated to the idea and to the greater progression of man that though he knew later that he had been dubbed he made very little of it and went on inventing, writing and creating till the end. I cannot say enough about this amazing individual.

Dude! I didn't even LIKE rap before him! No joke. I thought rap was, like, devil music or something because that's what my parent's told me. So I was like "Bad music can't be good." (Duh) But, one day, I was sitting on the bus in, like, 5th grade and this girl asked if I wanted to listen to some Eminem. I was all like "Heck yeah! " (I was rebelling. Still man! ) She handed an ear bud and real slim shady came on. I LOVED it but I knew I might get caught so I didn't listen to it again for a while. But then I got to 6th grade and got all depressed because I mom was getting sick. And one day I was having a sleep over at my house and my friends wanted me to draw something. I love drawing while listening to music so I turned a song on with my laptop. My friend Savannah hated the song so she turned on "Mocking bird" by Eminem and after that, I was officially hooked with Eminem. The only person in my family that actually knows is my big brother Isaac. No one else knows. - dipperpinesfangirl618
