  9. I admire LeBron Raymone James,born December 30, 1984), nicknamed “King James”, is an American professional basketball player for the Miami Heat of the National Basketball Association (NBA). A 6 ft 8 in (2.03 m) small forward who has also played as a power forward, he has been an NBA champion, the NBA Finals MVP, a three-time NBA MVP, and the NBA Rookie of the Year. James is an eight-time NBA All-Star, and has been named to eight All-NBA teams and four All-Defensive teams. He is also the Cleveland Cavaliers’ all-time leading scorer, and holds other franchise records for both the Cavaliers and the Heat.
    James played high school basketball at St. Vincent – St. Mary High School in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. A three-time “Mr. Basketball of Ohio”, he was highly promoted in the national media as a future NBA superstar. After graduating, he was selected with the first overall pick of the 2003 NBA Draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers. In 2010, he left the Cavaliers for the Heat in a highly publicized free agency period. In 2012, he led Miami to their second NBA title in franchise history, winning his first overall. His career achievements and leadership role during the Heat’s 2012 championship run have led a majority of basketball analysts, experts, and writers to consider him the best player in the NBA

  11. Genghis Khan was born in August of 1162 born Temujin, was the founder and Great Khan (emperor) of the Mongol Empire, which became the largest contiguous empire in history after his demise.
    He came to power by uniting many of the nomadic tribes of northeast Asia. After founding the Mongol Empire and being proclaimed “Genghis Khan”, he started the Mongol invasions that resulted in the conquest of most of Eurasia. These included raids or invasions of the Kara-Khitan Khanate, Caucasus, Khwarezmid Empire, Western Xia and Jin dynasties. These campaigns were often accompanied by wholesale massacres of the civilian populations – especially in Khwarezmia. By the end of his life, the Mongol Empire occupied a substantial portion of Central Asia and China.
    Before Genghis Khan died, he assigned Ögedei Khan as his successor and split his empire into khanates among his sons and grandsons. He died in 1227 after defeating the Western Xia. He was buried in an unmarked grave somewhere in Mongolia at an unknown location. His descendants went on to stretch the Mongol Empire across most of Eurasia by conquering or creating vassal states out of all of modern-day China, Korea, the Caucasus, Central Asian countries, and substantial portions of modern Eastern Europe, Russia and the Middle East. Many of these invasions repeated the earlier large-scale slaughters of local populations. As a result Genghis Khan and his empire have a fearsome reputation in local histories.
    Beyond his military accomplishments, Genghis Khan also advanced the Mongol Empire in other ways. He decreed the adoption of the Uyghur script as the Mongol Empire’s writing system. He also promoted religious tolerance in the Mongol Empire, and created a unified empire from the nomadic tribes of northeast Asia. Present-day Mongolians regard him as the founding father of Mongolia. I chose to admire Genghis khan Because he is very intelligent and under his rein the Mongol empire grew to be one of the greatest and largest empires that the world has seen. Also because he was very religiously tolerant and love to learn new lessons from other regions. He was a great leader and a feared enemy of everyone who didn’t join him.

The song peaked at 81 on 100, 22 on the U.S R&B and 12 on the U.S Rap. “Look In the Mirror” was the third single released 7 months after his second single on July 27, 2010. The song peaked at 97 on the U.S R&B chart. “For the Hood” featured rapper Gucci Mane.A beef between Gotti and frequent collaborator Gucci Mane began on October 17, 2012, when he was releasing his mixtape CM7: The World Is Yours on the same day as Gucci’s mixtape Trap God.According to the latter, real name Radric Davis, he stated in an interview with Hot 107.9, “My main problem with him was that he dropped his mixtape on 10/17 (the name of Gucci Mane’s record label, 1017 Bricksquad), and tried to like ride my wave, like he was an artist of mine or we get some kind of money together.” Yo Gotti denied in another interview with K97 that he chose the date intentionally, but simply didn’t realize it. Mims expressed displeasure at the situation by stating that he was “disappointed”, and that “He supposed to be my homeboy. To me Yo Gotti can stand his on ground and if they have a problem with him then he can deal with them face to face. Cameron RAMPAGE Rushing…Follow me on Twitter CMONEY10100…
