8 Mile is a 2002 American hip-hop drama film written by Scott Silver, directed by Curtis Hanson, and starring Eminem, Mekhi Phifer, Brittany Murphy, and Kim Basinger.
The film is an account of a young white rapper named Jimmy "B-Rabbit" Smith Jr. (Eminem) growing up in a poor area of 1995 Detroit, Michigan as he struggles for respect among his (mostly African-American) peers. Contrary to popular belief, the film does not detail Eminem's life growing up in Detroit, but instead, the average life of a rapper in Detroit, as stated by Eminem in interviews about the film. Despite this, the film is considered to be semi-autobiographical.

This, for me, is a refreshing change from all the military figures we have been bombarded with constantly. A 12-inch figure in street clothes without a weapon (except his mouth) is a rather rare sight but a welcome one for me. I like what I see. Now to wait and see if the price is right ;p
Not everyone goes barging in with guns blazing. This outfit is ideal for use with undercover cop figures or gangs. Just add baseball bat or weapon of your choice.

Make the wrong move and you can have 1/6 cop Bruce Willis (see previous post) bearing down on him and take him to the station for questioning LOL
Check out the other gang type figures under the label "Gangs". Some of them are pretty well dressed, especially those who belong to Tokyo Tribe 2!
