Product Description


Exactly 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, 8 Mile, 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 below-ground wordsmiths--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

'Music from and inspired by the motion picture' it says on the cover, but it seems that nearly all of the tracks are of the inspired kind, rather than some of the great music from the actual film. It sounds a bit harsh, but if it is the vibe of the film that you are after, you wont find it on this album - the older hip hop tracks that really characterise the film can be found on More Music From 8 Mile, the second CD from the film.
So what is the album like, apart from that? If you like modern rap music, you WILL like it, there are some great tracks by Nas, Xzibit, 50 Cent, and of course Eminem, whereas the rest are good to okay.
All in all, it's an okay album, but not worthy of more than three stars due to the fact that I dont really consider it to be a soundtrack to the film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Cd, but not enough tracks from the movie 12 Mar 2003
By Andre Mountain VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Anyone thinking about buying this CD should know that there are not many tracks on it from the actual film. If you are after Eminem's 'Lose Yourself' and some okay tracks by rappers such as Jay-Z, Nas, Rakim and Gangstarr, then you may like this CD, but if you are after some of the old school stuff as featured throughout the film, you should buy 'More Music From 8 Mile' which is the real soundtrack.
This is a good CD with some great tracks, but a soundtrack to the movie it ain't.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent stuff! 24 Sep 2003
Format:Audio CD
Well, it certainly is a joy to see such a great variety of hip hop crammed into 1 CD, and that is hard to find sometimes. But Em is at his best here, with fantastic tracks like 'Lose yourself', '8 mile' and 'Rabbit run'. Em also introduces 2 of his latest signings- 50 cent and Obie Trice who both feature with Slim on the decent 'Love you' and also have some tracks on their own. Obie has the hardcore 'Adrenaline rush' and 50 has 'places to go' which unfortunately isn't very good but all is made up for on 'Wan*sta'. Xzibit also makes an appearence with the brill 'spit shine'. D12 are in the great track 'rap game' too!Plus(even though I'm not a fan of him)Jay Z comes in with his good track '8 miles and runnin'. The only dissapointments are the tracks by Macy Gray and Young Zee. No Dr Dre either. But overall this CD is a MUST HAVE for all Eminem/rap fans!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best OST yet! 16 Jan 2003
Format:Audio CD
Eminem has become one of the most important and influential figures in the music business and the rap industry. Having just released a new album a few months ago he now brings us a new double CD (including the Shady/Aftermath sampler). Eminem himself raps in 5 songs. The first single Loose yourself is a bomb (!) and one of the best rap songs yet. The second song (Love me) in which the master features his two apprentices 50 Cent and Obie Trice. Check out 50 Cent's verse. The other two Eminem tracks (8 mile, Run Rabbit Run) are also very good. All other artists show themselves from their best side (apart from the fairly weak NAS song). I recommend especially Adrenaline Rush, 8miles and running, Spitshine and Wanksta. Even the two non-hiphop tracks sfit in well with the rest of the CD. They manage to mirror the mood of the movie, the conflict between despair and hope, extremely well.
On the Shady/Aftermath sampler we can find a few nice surprises two. First of all the track Stimulate, Eminem's fifth on this OST. It was originally meant to be on the Eminem Show, but who cares as long as we get to hear it now. The Obie Trice track should sound familiar to people who already have the Eminem show. There is also an R&B track on the CD plus the 50 Cent freestyle to Eminem's Till I collapse beat. Unfortunately it's only about 1:30 long. You also get some special access to more Eminem material which I quite franckly didn't use yet!
Eminem G.O.A.T.
Stay lit!

2.0 out of 5 stars Listen to it and get the eminem show! 4 Mar 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I love rap,but I've had this album a few days and I'm bored with it, lose yourself is good, and run rabbit run and a a few others. Wanksta by 50 cents was a typical example of a song that couldn't hold my attention and became backround music..What would have been nice would have been some stuff actually in the film! try it and see what you think.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shady Records At The Top 3 Nov 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is an absolutely superb collection of new and exciting hip hop from one of rap's most prominent stars.
To be honest, I didn't enjoy 'The Marshall Mathers LP' or 'The Eminem Show' anywhere near as much as 'The Slim Shady LP', 'Devil's Night' and the underground classic 'Infinite'. On those two albums, Em just seemed like he was trying too much to make his music commercially viable, and it turned out much less raw and fluent.
However, Marshall has put it all right with this. Definitely.
The opening track 'Lose Yourself' is the most obvious choice as a single, and that's why it is indeed, the first single. There's a heavy guitar driven base-line and a great piano riff to complement it. Em spits some great rhymes on this track about taking opportunities and getting taken in by the moment.
The second track is one of my personal favourites, 'Love Me', Eminem, Obie Trice and Shady Records new-boy 50 Cent carry this track entirely themselves as there is hardly any production at all. 'Love Me' is a song that takes the mickey out of all the current hip-pop songs about love, with some r'n'b singer praising this big ol' 'thugged out' rapper. Shady Records rip it up, they expose those sorts of songs for what they are - false.
Basically, that sets the tone for the rest of the album, there's some excellent moments provided by Nas, Jay-Z (Yes, a good song by Jay-Z recorded in the last 5 years!), more from Obie and 50 Cent, Xizbit, Rakim, Young Zee and others, but the real highlight of the album is the last 2 tracks. There's 'Run Rabbit', a fast moving hip hop roller coaster with no chorus, just Eminem going for like, 3 whole minutes, it's pretty incredible, and then there's the finest point of the album....
