In a recent interview on the Kid L Podcast, Brown revealed that his scene in 8 Mile didn’t make it to the final cut. According to him, the filmmakers mishandled the shooting of the freestyle rap battle scenes, leading to his exclusion.

“I think the real reason why they took those clips out of the movie is because they shot it wrong, because they had us all battling him,” he said around the 15:35 mark. If you ever was in a battle, I wouldn’t be in a battle… with 15 other rappers, and me just [battling] all of them … “It doesn’t happen that way,”

During the podcast, he made the assertion that he continues to receive royalty payments from the 2002 film, despite not appearing in the final version. He further emphasized, “I still receive financial compensation for that particular production.” Whenever you come across 8 Mile, make sure to watch and stream it, as we continue to receive financial compensation for its popularity. “Thank you, Eminem,” the individual expressed.

In a tragic turn of events, the rapper’s recent arrest follows the untimely passing of another 8 Mile alum, Nashawn Breedlove, also known as Ox. Breedlove tragically lost his life at the age of 46 due to a fatal overdose of fentanyl and cocaine back in September.
