Who’s Got The Juice: 22 Rappers Who Can Actually Act


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.”
