Seriously - what a 'pleasant' surprise.

Even if you don't like rap, grin and bear it - by the end of this you will appreciate the skill and innovation required to be good.

M&M is surprisingly effective. makes a point.

This is the inspiring captivating story of the legendary rapper Eminem. The troubled young aspiring rapper from a ghetto in Michigan must exert his last chances to become successful while dealing with his life in ruins. All is seemingly lost. He is now single, has only a few friends, an insane/alcoholic mother, and is dealt with poverty and living in a violent city on 8 mile. His only way out of the ghetto and torturous life he's living in is with his talent in rapping. Will B-Rabbit prevail and seize the shot he's given or will he let it slip?
