"Lose Yourself" topped the charts and broke records for the Detroit MC.
8 Mile, the Curtis Hanson-directed semi-biographical film based on Eminem's rise to fame, celebrates its 15th anniversary this year.
The film, which was released on Nov. 8, 2002, spawned his hit single "Lose Yourself," the first of five of Em's singles to hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. It went on to win the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2003, the first ever rap song to have receive the award. Additionally, the quintuple platinum track won 2004's Grammy Award for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Solo Performance.
In celebration of the film's 15h anniversary, a charity screening was held at the Bel Air Luxury Cinemas on Detroit's actual Eight Mile Road, which benefited the Community Music School's Verses Project, a joint project with Michigan State University.
