It's when one comes from nothing, overcomes obstacles, and succeeds in what they did/do. People like Jay-Z—critics might not admit it, but nobody has done it quite like he has done it.
Lol, you obviously know very little about rap history! Lil Wayne is from the New Orleans blocks. All rappers, who have made it, are not 'thug' any more. Well, I am sure there are a few examples of rappers living in the projects, but still rare (does Ghostface Killah count? Probably not!).

Lol, it shows
that he respects/loves his mother. It really makes me lol hard when people diss one of the best rappers out there today (have you heard
Tha Carter III? In my top three favourite albums of the 00's)! If only people could stop giving an immature, flying crap about celebrities' personal lives (and listen to the music)..!
