Q: if my parents still get upset over the obscene portion size of American food, I seriously doubt I'm gonna make any inroads with Eminem. What does this mean? ne anlama geliyor?
A: "Make inroads" means to enter, to move towards something, or to move closer to something. So "make inroads with Eminem" means "get closer to Eminem."

The person in your sentence is trying to say "My parents still get mad about America's huge food sizes, so I don't think I can get them to start liking something even crazier like Eminem." They are using the phrase "make inroads" slightly incorrectly. But that's ok, because this phrase doesn't get used very often.

Q: I owe it to my parents that I succeed in my business. bu doğru görünüyor mu?
A: @jokifreek You are very welcome!
Hm.. I think it sounds a little more natural to say it like "I owe it to my parents to succeed in my business."
Like in the first comment. When you say "Succeeded" can mean you succeeded in the past in your business.

In the past, I succeeded in business. I owed it to my parents."
"Owed" is past tense, so it already has happened.

It can also be used in the present time (current time).
"I have succeeded in my business. I feel I owe it to my parents."

Or future= "I will succeed in my business. I owe it to my parents."

Again "owed" is something I have already done.

Owe=current
Owed=past tense

So overall, succeeded means it already has happened, but I wanted to give you some examples to help understand :)
