Although the 8 MILE soundtrack links to a semi-autobiographical film featuring hip-hop bad-boy Eminem, the controversial rapper maintains a low profile on the CD. The man known as Marshall Mathers appears on a mere four tracks including "Love Me," an ominous-sounding collaboration with proteges Obie Trice and 50 Cent, who both appear with solo cuts of their own. 50 Cent's verbal skills have already landed him a joint Eminem/Dr. Dre label deal and earned him plenty of street cred thanks to the underground hit "Wanksta," which appears here along with the equally tasty "Places To Go." Other members of the Eminem/Dre axis who appear are D12 (a thumping "Rap Game") and Xzibit (the equally vicious "Spit Shine").
Also taking a turn on the soundtrack are Queens icon Nas ("U Wanna Be Me"), Brooklynite Jay-Z featuring Freeway ("8 Miles and Runnin'), and neo-soul free spirit Macy Gray ("Time Of My Life"). Not surprisingly, Eminem's jams prove to be the most potent and include the vitriolic "Rabbit Run," the insanely catchy title cut, and the smash jam "Lose Yourself." The bonus version of 8 MILE includes a bonus Enhanced CD featuring behind-the-scenes film footage, videos, freestyling, artist messages, and exclusive Eminem and Shady Records content.
