While releasing the controversial ‘Kamikaze‘ album and maintaining a high-profile feud with Machine Gun Kelly, Eminem also diverted his time to producing a movie. The mainstream music video producer-Joseph Kahn is involved in directing hands for ‘Bodied’ movie.
“A progressive graduate student finds success and sparks outrage when his interest in battle rap as a thesis subject turns into a competitive obsession.” –IMDb
One might expect these rap battles to be inspired by Eminem’s life, who also notoriously entered underground rap battles and won during a time where rap music was dominated by African Americans. However, no official connection has been drawn between B-Rabbit from ‘8 Mile’ and Adam from ‘Bodied.’ On top of Calum Worthy (Adam), the movie also features rappers such as Dizaster, Jonathan “Dumbfoundead” Park, Hollow Da Don and Charlamagne tha God.
The initial release of the movie was on November 2, 2018, in the US. However, now you can stream the full movie right from YouTube Premium.
