And his alarm went off to wake him but he didn't make it to the Rap Olympics
Slept through his plane and he missed it
Before Eminem was famous, he participated in an event called the Rap Olympics, which is a freestyle rap battle competition (kinda like 8 Mile). Em came in 2nd, but all that mattered was that it caught the attention of music producer Jimmy Iovine who gave a tape of Em’s music to Dr. Dre
Since this was THE turning point of Em’s career, if he had missed it we may never have known him.
