  • 8 Mile: The Soundtrack

    I hadn't listened to this album in a very long time, but I gave it a listen all the way through and realized that this soundtrack is very, very well put together, with a variety of both up and coming and legendary artists.

    1. Lose Yourself - Eminem: Not only one of the best Eminem songs, but also one of the best hip-hop songs of the decade. Classic production, flawless delivery, and amped up chorus make this song what it is. Not much else to say about perfection. 10/10

    2. Love Me - Obie Trice, Eminem, & 50 Cent
    : Another outstanding song, ad does its best to not provide a let-down after listening to Lose Yourself. Obie delivers his flow nicely, and Eminem straight up lyrically murders the track. 50 Cent, who was actually still good around his Get Rich or Die Tryin' days also comes nicely on the track, throwing disses at various artists. I guess I like the concept, some of the little quips in the chorus are kinda funny. 10/10

    3. 8 Mile - Eminem: What other to say than that this is simply Eminem in his prime. Catchy beat, extended verses with on-point lyricism and multies. Inspiring song, classic. 10/10

    4. Adrenaline Rush - Obie Trice: Gotta be honest, I absolutely HATED this song when I first heard it. The chorus annoyed me with all of its "Motherfucker!!!!'s and I thought Obie was a faggot trying to be a hard ass. It grew on me a little, partially due to me liking Obie's verse on "Love Me." Still not a great song, actually, probably not a good song, but it's decent and listenable. 6/10

    5. Places To Go - 50 Cent: Liked this song right off the bat, and still like it. 50 attacks the track maliciously and does a nice job on the hook/bridge with his singing. Good flow and delivery, overally very good track. 9/10

    6. Rap Game - D12 & 50 Cent: A typical, solid D12 song. Swifty starts off nicely, Eminem's flow is perfect, 50 sings a solid, catchy hook, and everyone pretty much does a overall solid gym except for the one handicap in D12. I mean, seriously, who the fuck isn't able to finish their verse, so instead starts laughing and mumbles for "50 Cent" to sing the hook? God I fucking hate Bizarre. This song is a 9/10 until he gets on it, so then it becomes an 8/10.

    7. 8 Miles and Runnin' - Jay-Z & Freeway: I'm glad Jay-Z got on this soundtrack. Just a simple song with solid lyricism, it's kind of an introductory track for Freeway, who I heard for the first time on this song. 7/10

    8. Spit Shine - Xzibit: Nothing too special about this song. To me, Xzibit is just an average rapper with decent lyrics. This song fits this profile pretty well. 6/10

    9. Time of My Life- Macy Gray: Um, why is this on here? 0/10

    10. U Wanna Be Me - Nas: Yessss, refreshing to hear good old Nas on this CD, especially after that garbage on track 9. He's definitely lashing out at someone, and although the timeline doesn't exactly fit it sounds a lot like Jay-Z to me, but it probably isn't. Still a great song, lyricism and flow are flawless. So far, this CD has arguably the 3 greatest rappers of this generation with Eminem, Nas, and Jay-Z. 9/10

    11. Wanksta - 50 Cent: The first 50 Cent song I'd ever heard, and loved it immediately. If 50 actually stuck to making songs like this and Places to Go for his entire career maybe he wouldn't be a complete joke now. Gotta love the hook and solid verses, nothing wrong with this song. 10/10

    12. Wasting My Time - Boomkat: I actually know why this is on the soundtrack, and that's because the singer is Janeen in the movie. One of the best lines in the movie is "FUCK YOU JANEEN GO HOME," so this gets a 1/10.

    13. R.A.K.I.M. - Rakim: Now I don't know much about Rakim, but this is an excellent track, from someone who is considered a legendary rapper by many. 9/10

    14. Thats My ***** Fo' Real - Young Zee: The first track I'd ever heard from him, and I liked it immediately. I don't know if it's the chorus that I like, which is strange, but this is just an overall attractive song with pretty good punchlines. 8/10

    15. Battle - Gang Starr: Nothing special about this track. I guess it's alright but sounds pretty generic. 5/10

    16. Rabbit Run - Eminem: Fantastic way to end the CD. A no chorus, three minute straight hungry verse from Eminem from his "B. Rabbit" character in the movie. Again, a prime example of Eminem in his prime. 10/10

    I would definitely give this a 9/10. Eminem in his prime which can't be beat and a nice mix of other songs. "Wasting My Time" and "Battle" are the only songs I don't like on there. The Macy Gray song is actually good, it's just so out of place on that soundtrack lol.

      5/10 To Battle? i'd give a 8

      i'd give a 7 to Adrenaline Rush


      and i'd give a 10/10, but I Dont like at all Time Of My Life & Wasting My Time


      so 8/10.....its a classic


      and bizarre comes good, considering how he is....he raps well and he keeps inside the topic, something he doesnt do always....off course theres has to be a joke, but meh, oy wouldnt be bizarre without a joke

      i'd give Rap Game 10/10...Man, Eminem Murdered This Soundtrack...every verse is classic

                    Lmfao at Spitshine and Battle getting bad reviews those songs are fucking awesome.

                    Eminem's tracks on the album are fucking incredible, I thought he was going to keep making music that good forever.

                        Isn't it mandatory to include a poll in these album review threads?
