Eminem not only brings you three solo cuts in the 8 Mile soundtrack but also introduces his new posse – fellow Detroit rapper Obie Trice and New Yorker 50 Cent – who further his franchise with their own sneering nihilism. Nas and Macy Gray underwhelm, but the big problem is Em’s dreary production, which threatens even a dazzling verse from Jay-Z.
