Eminem has announced a 20th anniversary edition of his 8 Mile soundtrack.

The film, which was released on November 8, 2022, starred Eminem and was a semi-biographical story about his early life in Detroit and his beginnings in rap battles.

This week (October 26), Eminem announced the anniversary release on Twitter, along with a montage of clips from the hit film.

“‘I’m still standing here screaming ‘f*** the Free World,'” the rapper tweeted, referring to one of his film’s famous lines.

“The #8Mile 20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition soundtrack will be available for streaming on Friday!”

The album’s deluxe edition includes instrumental versions of every song from the original soundtrack, as well as a demo of ‘Lose Yourself.’

That song was the first rap song to win Best Original Song at the Oscars in 2003, and it also won Best Rap Song and Best Male Rap Solo Performance at the Grammys in 2004. Eminem’s first number one song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart was also this song.

The film, which also starred Kim Basinger, Brittany Murphy, and Mekhi Phifer, has grossed over $240 million (£207 million) worldwide and is still one of the highest-rated Hip Hop films ever made.

The soundtrack was released on October 29, 2002, and included contributions from Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Nas, Rakim, and Gang Starr.

Recently, rapper 50 Cent stated that he believes Eminem is underappreciated for his contributions to the world of hip hop.

During an interview on the podcast Ebro In The Morning to discuss his latest TV project Hip-Hop Homicides, the rapper explained that Eminem helped to make hip hop more accessible to more people, raising the genre’s profile and popularity.

“I don’t think they give Em the credit he deserves,” he said. “Because people need to see where they fit in before they can embrace something.”

“I think part of Eminem’s legacy is the growth of our culture,” he continued. People would not buy it if they couldn’t see how they fit in. And he’s there, and because of his journey, he’s a legitimate artist. When you watch 8 Mile, you will see a Black story with a white lead. You’re seeing poverty and [similar] circumstances. Look at his friends Proof, D-12, and everyone else: these are true hip hop men. That’s why he’s a true hip hop guy.”
