Martin Lawrence: The Black Millionaire Blueprint for Success

Many people are unaware of this fact — Martin Laurence was destined for greatness at birth. His first and middle names that his parents bequeathed him were of great men, and Laurence fulfilled his destiny as he became a comedic superstar on stage, starred in his own television sitcom as well as  multiple blockbuster motion pictures, and made his own comedy documentary. As another descendent of the Richard Pryor-Eddie Murphy comedy tree, Laurence is considered ratings and movie gold in Hollywood.

This is his story.
