Eminem not only proved that a white man can rap and be good at it, he also inspires people every day. He inspired me to start writing rap! I realized that just because I'm white does not mean I would be bad at rapping. He boosted my confidence level, he pumps me up with his songs, he's just amazing at what he does. Period, he is the most inspirational rapper/singer of all time. If he can inspire me than he can inspire anyone to do whatever they put their mind to.
Eminem is unique in many ways, he really knows how to play with words. He's been through a lot and he still is where he's at. For example he used to be poor, he used to be bully, he was a drug addict but was strong enough to recover. If you don't like Eminem I'm not judging but I want you to listen to the song Headlights, or Hailie's song
Lyrical Geniuses. And he doesn't care whether you like him or not. He is just being him.
He is PHENOMENOL
