A new music documentary, “How Music Got Free”, is set to explore the controversial topic of music piracy, and it seems Slim Shady himself is involved.

The documentary will reportedly feature appearances from a range of figures in the music industry, including Eminem, 50 Cent, and industry veteran Paul Rosenberg. And Method Man himself narrates the film. The story centres on Dell Glover, a former CD factory worker who, alongside a group of teenage hackers, is credited with playing a significant role in the rise of music piracy.
“How Music Got Free” is being distributed by Paramount+.

While details about Eminem’s specific involvement are scarce, it’s interesting to note his inclusion given his own past battles with unauthorized leaks of his music.

Early reviews suggest the documentary takes a balanced approach to piracy, exploring its impact on both artists and consumers. Directors Alexandria Stapleton and Stephen Witt, whose book of the same title has inspired the project, speaking at SXSW, mentioned the film will delve into the “golden age” of the music industry, the rise of Napster and its impact on record labels, and the subsequent evolution of streaming platforms.

Whether Eminem offers a critical perspective or a more nuanced take on piracy remains to be seen. With a release date yet to be announced, fans will have to wait for further details about the film and the extent of Eminem’s participation. However, given his own experiences with leaks and the evolution of his music career alongside the changing music industry landscape, his involvement undoubtedly adds another layer of intrigue to this upcoming documentary.
