Classic Album Review: Various Artists | More Music From 8 Mile

The sequel to Slim Shady's movie has a lot going for it — just not Eminem.

885

This came out in 2002 – or at least that’s when I got it. Here’s what I said about it back then (with some minor editing):

 


Buyer beware: If you aren’t paying attention, you could easily confuse this similar-looking album with the original soundtrack to 8 Mile. And if you do, you might very well end up disappointed — especially if you expect to hear Eminem.

Even though his picture is on the front cover — and the back — he’s nowhere to be found on this dozen-track soundtrack sequel. What you will find here, I have to admit, is fairly impressive: A bunch of classics from B.I.G. (Juicy), OutKast (Player’s Ball), Mobb Deep (Survival Of The Fittest) and a whole whack of Wu-Tangers. Still, without Slim Shady, More Music From 8 Mile seems like slim pickin’s.
