Eminem Remembers 8 Mile in New VIBE

VIBE rounded up Em and a good portion of the cast of 8 Mile, which is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year, to look back on the production of the film and the impact it had on Hip-Hop. Read the cover story, penned by Jeff Rosenthal, here.

You always said this isn’t your life story. Does it matter that everybody thinks it is?
Eminem: It doesn’t really matter to me. People who really listen to my music probably know what’s real in that movie and what’s not. There were bits and pieces that were taken from my life, but for the most part, it was the story of the underdog. We rehearsed so much before we even started the film, and I was in every scene. I was there every day from 6 a.m. until—half the time—5 in the morning the next day. It became a point where I felt like I am this person. I’m fucking B-Rabbit because I was living this movie. I had no choice but to be him.

    He built Apple, left, watched it crumble, they asked to bring him back, and he built it to be the largest company of all time.

    Not now – all time – the market cap of Apple passed up Exxon last year.

    And he did that in less than 20 years.

    So yeah – Steve Jobs is the most important mind of the last 100 years and is definitely a hero of mine.

    ^

    all of that is cute and all but i still doesnt warrant hero status to me .. thats just my personal opinion

    i disagree with him being the MOST improtant mind in the last 100 years

    i mean if you grew up in the suburbs went to stanford etc i could see him being your hero

    but im a young black male , i cant relate to steve jobs life therfore although i recognize his great accomplishments .. he could NEVER be my hero

    the odds werent against steve jobs

    i tip my hat to niggas that got it off the muscle , when the odds were against them , and they still prevailed like a trill nigga and came out on top

    ^

    I have read a lot of stupid shit on NR.

    A LOT.

    But this is the stupidest fucking thing I have ever read.

    Steve Jobs was born to an Arab father and a white mother.

    They put his ass up for adoption.

    Got tooken in by a lower class white family.

    Went to college, dropped out to make computers in his garage.

    NOT white.

    NOT privileged.

    The amazing thing about your post is that virtually everything you wrote is factually wrong.

    I swear some of you cats will never accomplish a single fucking thing in your life because you argue on emotion and never even stop for a millisecond to consider the facts.

    SMFH x 1 billion

    WOOP!!

    Nigga really did write 6-8 posts arguing with NO facts.

    LMAO.

    that isn’t I say Jobs never benefitted from being an “assumed”white.

    But that really doesn’t affect that the man did a lot.

  5. F YOU PAY ME! Says:

    so now Steve Jobs isnt white

    come on cuz , his race may not be white , but in America he is white

    you cant dispute that he took advantage of white priveldge

    a lower white class family? really?

    he moved to Mountain View California at the age of 5

    His adopted mom , Clara , was an Accoutnat

    “Clara was an accountant who taught him to read before he went to school.[1] Clara Jobs had been a payroll clerk for Varian Associates, one of the first high-tech firms in what became known as Silicon Valley ”

    what the fuck are you talkin about low white class family

    I said Steve Jobs accomplished great things

    but because most of america has a hard on for an ex LSD user turns technological THIEF doesnt mean i have to deem him as a hero

    fuck outta here

    and TS you know better , you know Huey wasnt on that shit like that .. that was the work of Cointel Pro

    Maclom
    Marcus

    those my heroes to

    come on cuz

  6. F YOU PAY ME! Says:

    tha fuck does him droppin out of college have to do with the price of potatoes nigga?

    the fact is

    he had the advantage of white privledge

    he was raised in a comfortable suburb

    the odds were NOT against him

    he WENT to stanford .. so what he dropped out to build computers in his garage

    stop tryna make it seem like Steve Jobs hand immense hurdles to jump and struggle to prevail through

    my heroes aint have a garage to build shit it in nigga

    they got it from the bottom

    thats the thesis of my argument
