8 Mile

Question: When B-rabbit, Future, Cheddar Bomb and Sol George park in some kind of parking structure and join in on a freestyle circle, right after B-rabbit finishes his freestyle, Sol George breaks into a song and sings, "Now I'm the dashiki smoking that ling lingy, 10 freaky girls inside the chin chingy, girl when you see me ya better believe me..." Is that a real song or did they just freestyle that?

Chosen answer: They were just freestyling, that is not a real song.

Question: Why didn't B-Rabbit yell at and break up with Alex Latorno after he caught her cheating on him?

Chosen answer: They'd only known each other a short while and were not necessarily in an exclusive relationship.

Question: Not directly related to the film, but to Eminem's song "Sing for the Moment". At one point he says "you're full of sh*t too Guererra, that was a fist that hit you". Who is Guererra?

Chosen answer: In June 2000, Eminem got in trouble for having a gun at a nightclub. John Guererra was a bouncer at the club that Eminem thought kissed his (then) wife. Guererra alledged that Eminem pistol-whipped him, but Eminem continues to deny the charges.

Chosen answer: What he meant was that he was going to go off and try to be a success as a rapper on his own without anybody helping him achieve his goal.

Chosen answer: Imitation of Life.

Question: What's the name of the background song that plays around the 35 minute mark of the movie, when Alex walks out of the club to talk to Jimmy?

Answer: "Feel my flow now" by naught by nature.

Question: At the end, during the battle with Lotto, Rabbit tells him to "Pay attention. You're saying the same shit he said" while pointing to Lyckety-Splyt. Lotto's insults were all racist, while Lyckety (whose only racial comment was calling Rabbit a Nazi), focused his insults towards beating Rabbit and insulting his friends. Therefore how was Lotto repeating Lickety's insults?

Answer: Lyckety made several racial insults in addition to calling Rabbit a Nazi: "You the New Kid on the Block about to get smacked back to the boondocks", "form a squad with Vanilla Ice", "this guy's a hillbilly, this ain't Willie Nelson music", "you'll get dropped so hard that Elvis will start turnin' in his grave", "need to take your white a** back across 8 Mile to the trailer park." Cleverly, all of Lyckety's racial insults refer specifically to white recording artists besides his final insult. Lotto does essentially the same thing, saying generic things about Rabbit's race. This is why Rabbit says "you see how far the white jokes get you" when he battles Lotto.

Question: Throughout the movie a set of numbers are mentioned 303 and 801 I think, but what do these numbers mean.

Chosen answer: Taken from the 8 Mile trivia page on the IMDB: "The group 3 1/3 is a reference to Detroit's area code: 313. The suburbs on the other side of 8 mile, in 1995, had the area code 810, hence certain people being called "eight tens" in the film."
