Music from and Inspired by the Motion Picture 8 Mile by Eminem


Summary

Music from and Inspired by the Motion Picture 8 Mile is the official soundtrack to the 2002 movie 8 Mile. The album, performed by various artists, was released under Shady Records. It spawned the hit single "Lose Yourself" by American rapper Eminem, who also stars in the semi-autobiographical movie. The album also spawned a follow up soundtrack, More Music from 8 Mile, consisting of songs that appear in the film and were released as singles during the film's time setting of 1995. One of the songs was performed by Tupac Shakur, who would be the subject of a documentary with a soundtrack produced by Eminem, who also produced a posthumous album by Tupac. The album also features four songs by the Wu-Tang Clan and its members, and two songs by Mobb Deep, who eventually signed to G-Unit Records, headed by Shady Records artist 50 Cent. Both albums were also made available in censored versions, removing most of the strong profanity and violent content.
