Cause I don't own no diploma for school, I quit

from Eminem (Ft. Liz Rodrigues) – Survival Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

After spending three years in ninth grade due to truancy and poor grades, Eminem dropped out of Lincoln High School at the age of 17.

Em has touched on this before in his song, White America:

I ain’t have to graduate from Lincoln High School to know that
But I could rap, so fuck school, I’m too cool to go back

And he dropped out because he wasn’t interested in school, but in rap. He was good in English, though.
