How Eminem was able to assemble so many credible emcees of today and yesteryear (Jay-Z, Rakim) to endorse his Holly'hood coming out party is anyone's guess. What is clear, however, is that (dare we say it) the Shady One might be growing up. On "Lose Yourself" Em abandons his callous, hardcore posturing to write thoughtful hood-centric coming-of-age lyrics that would make Melle Mel proud. On "Battle," Gang Starr's Guru tears through a sick beat from rap's most prolific producer, DJ Premier. Sadly, Nas wastes more valuable studio time dissing Jay-Z (ho hum) on "You Wanna Be Me." Interestingly, once you get past the living-legend love-in and peep the skills from Em's lesser-known Shady Records roster of underground wordsmiths, such as 50 Cent ("Wanksta") or Obie Trice ("Adrenaline Rush"), you might urge Em to consider giving up his thespian pursuits to become a full-time record executive. Not even the baffling inclusion of Macy Gray's humdrum "Time of Your Life" can sink this project. --Dalton Higgins

Customer Reviews

A MUST BUY for rap fans.
S. Khan
Overall, my only dissapointment was the Nas song, but the rest are good.
The songs by Obie Trice and Eminem are really good.

8 Mile Soundtrack, has to be one of the nicest soundtracks out in a long time. In the movie Eminem is the the main actor, and the story is similar to his life story, and his long rise in the game. The soundtrack is laced with loads of rap talent, old and new, with Ems group D12, 50 Cent, Nas, Jay-Z, Young Zee,Gangstarr, Freeway, Macy Gracy, Boomkat, Obie Trice and the legendary Rakim all making appearances. The album opens with the lead single "Lose Yourself", Eminem verses.. You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow; this opportunity comes once in a lifetime.. to the background guitar riffs which gradually rise throghout the song. Eminem is passing the message, when the opportunity comes, you better dam will grasp it, track is very powerfull. This is my favourite track on the album."8 Mile" and "Love Me" Feat. 50 Cent and Obie Trice follow and are nice tracks. On "8 Miles and Running" Jay-Z and Freeway drop a deadly combination. Macy Gracys "Time of Your Life" brings about a change in sound, produced by Dante Ross, as does Nas "U wanna be Me" another blazing track where Nas kicks insightful knowledge. Hiphop Legend Rakim who is making a commeback appears on "R.A.K.I.M" and flows nicely, letting you know he is still very much in the game. Gangstarr appears on "Battle" produced by DJ premier. 8 mile soundtrack is really a show of Shady Records talent and Eminems beats but succesfull tracks by big names like Nas, Jay-Z and Rakim all raise the quality of the album. Blazing soundtrack, worth checking out.

The 8 Mile soundtrack is being given a lot of publicity mainly because the movie is such a success. However, I think everyone's making too much of a big deal about it. I listened to the CD with high expectations and was left thinking, 'That's it??' Sure, the songs by Eminem are pretty hot (actually they're very hot) but others, such as "Spit Shine" (XZIBIT), "U wanna be me" (Nas), "R.A.K.I.M" (Rakim) and "That's my Nigga fo' real" (Young Zee) had very similar beats and had me skipping over to the next song before they were even finished! As for "Adrenaline Rush" (Obie Trice), the excessive use of the word [explicit word]kinda got boring after a while. I like the feminine touch added by "Time of my Life" (Macy Gray) and "Wasting my time" (Boomkat), but I've gotta say, the only ones probably worth listening to again are "Lose Yourself", "Love Me", "Rap Game", "8 Miles and Runnin'", "Wanksta", "Battle" and "Rabbit Run". My fave song on the whole CD was by far, "8 Mile". It's gonna be huge!
In conclusion, if you're after Eminem only, maybe this isn't the one for you.

Back when I was still determining what music genre to call my own I developed an interest in rap. After a while I got my first real rap album, 8 Mile. It still remains one of my favourite albums. Every song (excluding 2, you'll know which ones I'm talking about) has been burnt in my memory. I'll break it down for you...

1. LOSE YOURSELF-Eminem: (5/5)- What better way to start an album than with the first rap song to win the Academy Award for Best Song. This is, without a doubt, one of Eminem's best ever, and don't forget that he produced it too. This will always be a rap classic, need I say more?

2. LOVE ME-Eminem ft. Obie Trice & 50 Cent: (4.5/5)- Maybe it doesn't sport the best content, but I can't get enough of this one. Em's production is excellent, the light vocal chorus contrasts very well with the hard rap. All three artists are hungry and they deliver well.

3. 8 MILE-Eminem: (4/5)- Another good production by Eminem, at 6:00 minutes it's a little long, but recreates that dirty Detroit street feeling from the movie.

4. ADRENALINE RUSH-Obie Trice: (4/5)- Obie definitely captures your attention with this one, nowhere else will you here muthaf***** spit so many times in one chorus. Perhaps the most over-the-top on this album, but I love it.

5. PLACES TO GO-50 Cent: (4/5)- Now that we're well acquainted with Trice, it's 50's turn to introduce himself. This is a good one, especially considering it's 50 Cent. He doesn't sound bored in this one, and it's yet another great production from Eminem.

6. RAP GAME-D12: (4.5/5)- This one sports all six members of D12, with a dope chorus from 50 Cent and chilling joint-production between Eminem and Denaun Porter (Kon Artis).

As a movie soundtrack, "8 Mile" is not the best, especially since only a few of the songs appear in the movie. Eminem, of course, contributes the best tracks and this time from the prespective of his "Rabbit" character instead of "Slim Shady", which adds a new dimension to Em's already powerful MC arsenal. The problem is the rest of the artists give an uneven contribution. Even the rap heavyweights are disappointing at times. LOSE YOURSELF-You've problably heard this 100 times by now. It's still great; a different and more inspirational track than Em's other commercial hits. (5/5) LOVE ME-An odd semi-love song. The funniest verse comes from 50 Cent. (3.5/5) 8 MILE-More than just the movie's title. A terrific 6-minute escape-from-home rant from Em and perfect for the film. My favorite track. I liked this even better than "Lose Yourself". (5/5) ADRENALINE RUSH-I hated this. Em's protege' Obie Trice, who contributed a really disgusting verse in "Drips", does no better here. An empty diss of whomever .... Obie's track on the bonus sampler is much better than this. (0/5) PLACES TO GO-To me, 50 Cent shows much more potential than Obie. He has a more laid back style in his delivery. Pretty smooth track and fitting for the movie. (4/5) RAP GAME-Pretty amusing track from D12. Funniest moment is Em rapping in Pig Latin. (3.5/5) 8 MILES AND RUNNIN'-Okay track from Jay-Z & Freeway, but it sounds like an ad for "Blueprint 2". (3/5) SPIT SHINE-So-so rant from Xzibit. He been more forceful in his previous work. (2.5/5) TIME OF MY LIFE-Sure, this song is out of place, but I still liked it. (4/5) U WANNA B ME-Normally, Nas is one of the more deep, thought-provoking rappers around, especially in songs like "One Mic", but he's completely wasted here.Read more ›
