Eminem on Writing, Rhyming, and English Class

Whether his name makes you wince or smile, Eminem has established himself in hip-hop and pop culture by linguistically out maneuvering everyone in earshot. In this segment from 60 Minutes, Eminem talks about his life and his art.  Educators might be especially interested in the way he talks about writing, rhyming, and English class.  I especially loved the moment where he opens a shoebox (literally) of scraps of paper with rhymes scribbled down.  Imagine if rather than notebooks we made sure every student had one of those instead.
