Hip-Hop-FridayI had so much fun with the Hip-Hop Friday post a couple of weeks ago that I’ve decided to make it a regular series. Maybe not every Friday, but at least every once in awhile, when the spirit moves me. Think of it as hip-hop for people who think they don’t like hip-hop. Or maybe hip-hop for parents (and others).

Eminem & Proof (with The Roots) – Lose Yourself (Grammy Awards, 2003)

Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” won the Academy Award in 2003 for Best Original Song (written for the movie 8 Mile) as well as Grammys for both Best Male Rap Solo Performance and Best Rap Song.

All of us can identify in some way with the lyrics: What if this really is the only opportunity we’ve got? In many ways, it is, each and every day.
