Eminem picked himself off the mat countless times II become the world's greatest & biggest selling rap artiste. An amazing accomplishment IV a white man in a music for that is almost all black focused. He never got past Grade IX, failing it IIx beIV passing it. Here he is, self taught, self made & very rich.
