People have a tendency to look at the worst in people. They especially have that tendency when the people are stars who have made millions of dollars in the rap industry. I have seen and recorded the worst but I choose to focus on the best. Lil Wayne is not a success because he spews explicit language, demeans black women and jumps up and down on stage with his shirt off - anyone can do that. Lil Wayne is successful because Dwayne Carter applies principles of substance underneath the symbol of the rapper. Because of those principles (that I have adapted to lessons within this book) he is without a doubt one of the greatest recording artist of our time and will live forever in the minds of those who have grown up on his music. I have personally gained from his words while videotaping his life for years, from the Carter I album through to the Carter III. These lessons that have come during nationwide tours, while at his home, on private jets, on our way to jail, overseas and more. Words spoken after the groupies had left, the security had turned in for the night, and his entourage was out. Just him, me, and the camera. No matter what and where you are in life this book contains lessons we all can benefit from!
Last night/early this morning I was unable to sleep so I decided to purchase this book. This was the book is under rated. This book have so much great advice to be successful in life.
I have a new respect for this man. This a must read read for everyone.
