Emimem is involved in another battle rap-related film, Bodied. However, rather than starring in it as with the 2002 blockbuster 8 Mile, he is serving as the upcoming film’s producer .Based on a script penned by rap battle champion Alex “Kid Twist” Larsen, Bodied is directed by music video director Joseph Kahn, who has helmed videos for Eminem, Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, U2 and many others. In the trailer, several voiceovers declare “Battle rap is not boxing, it’s a street fight,” “words are weapons” and “we battle rappers, we battle each other and disrespect each other in the ring as rappers.” There is also a voiceover that states “how sensitive the climate is towards racism and appropriation.” It closes with a tension-filled rap battle exchange between characters Megaton and MC Goggles.Em’s been a really busy . The rapper’s reportedly got a new album coming out, and he’s even worked with 2 Chainz on some music. Now we know we’ll also get the chance to see some of his creativity at work when Bodied is released during the Toronto International Film Festival, which begins on Sept. 7.
