Eminem in 8 Mile

Year: 2002

Although it’s his only featured film role to date, Eminem’s performance in 8 Mile has gone down as one of the finest film performances from a rapper in a major movie. Em plays Jimmy “B-Rabbit” Smith, a white blue collar worker from Detroit struggling to provide for his young daughter while establishing a career in hip-hop. The Curtis Hanson-directed biopic was praised by critics upon its release, and even earned Em an Academy Award for his original song “Lose Yourself.”

    FIRST OF ALL !!! WILL SMITH IS THE GREATEST RAPPER ON THE BIG SCREEN!!! PERIOD!!!! Busta Rhymes should be on there just for his one scene in Holloween Resurrection (HILARIOUS SCENE BY THE WAY!) and i’m very shocked that Nas is not on here just for being in the hood classic movie Belly (my favorite personally)
