Pretend he procrastinated, had no motivation

from B.o.B (Ft. Eminem & Hayley Williams) – Airplanes, Pt 2 Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Even though high school drop outs are generally perceived as lazy, Em actually has an incredible work ethic. He reads the dictionary to improve his vocabulary and took part in countless rap battles when he was underground. If he hadn’t put in this work it is doubtful he would ever get signed, considering there wasn’t a really much of a market for white guys that rapped about raping women and killing gays at the time he was coming up.
