Eminem's story of overcoming financial and emotional obstacles by doing the best he could with his skill until he eventually broke through is inspirational. Finding Eminem to be an inspiration isn't something new or unusual at this point, but I do like the way he makes it accessible in his songs. His earlier songs are about being irritated at work, performing dreadful tasks, and getting employed and dismissed on the same day.

I don't know, and I find his work inspiring as someone who rides an inefficient bus system home from an incredibly soul-sucking job to try to figure out how to put some words on a page that will (maybe) (one day) get me out of here.
