The legendary “8 Mile: Music From And Inspired By The Motion Picture” just hit a new milestone of 2.4 billion streams.

This is not a surprise. The soundtrack racked up another 100 million streams in just two months, proving it’s still a heavyweight in the streaming game. Naturally, it features some biggest names in the game. You can find there Eminem and rappers from his camps, such as 50 Cent, D12, and Obie Trice, along with giants such as Nas, Rakim, and Jay Z. But let’s be real, Slim Shady himself deserves most of the credit. “Lose Yourself”, the Oscar-winning anthem, holds the crown with over 2.1 billion streams on its own. No other track on the project comes close to that number, but that doesn’t diminish the album’s magic.

“8 Mile: Music from and Inspired by the Motion Picture” is more than just a soundtrack, it’s a time machine. It throws you back to the early 2000s hip-hop scene, capturing the raw energy and fierce competition that defined the era. This is not nostalgia, though – these tracks still go hard today.

And they went hard back then, propelling “8 Mile” to No.1 debut on the Billboard 200, with over 700,000 copies sold in the first week. It kept the momentum going, selling another half a million copies in week two. By the end of 2002, it was the fifth best-selling album in the US. Certified 6x Platinum in the States, it’s estimated to have sold over 10 million copies worldwide.

So, the next time you need a dose of pure, unadulterated hip hop, throw on the “8 Mile” soundtrack.
