Eminem rapped a verse from “Places to Go,” which was featured on the soundtrack to the Oscar-winning film.

“Picture a perfect picture/picture me in the paper/picture me starting s—/picture me busting my gat/picture police man dey ain’t gotta picture of that.”

He continues: “Where I’m from its a fact/you gotta watch your back/You wear a vest without a gat/you’s a target jack.”

After wrapping up the verse, Eminem admits: “Yeah, so, that made me want to stop rapping, for like a long time.”

8 Mile went on to win the 2003 Oscar for Best Original Song for “Lose Yourself.”
