Eminem has announced that he will be releasing a deluxe edition of the '8 Mile' soundtrack for the 20th anniversary of the classic movie and the album released alongside it.

Eminem revealed this news to fans through his social media accounts on Wednesday (26th October), announcing that the reissued album would be released on Friday the 28th of October.

The film was first released in November of 2022, and focused on somewhat telling the story of Eminem's upbringing and rise to rap success.

The movie marked the first time Eminem featured in a lead acting role and also featured the actors Mekhi Phifer, Kim Basinger and the late Brittany Murphy.

It peaked at number one in the USA Billboard hot 100 music chart, the first time emnem achieved that feat.

It also received multiple Grammy honours, including Best Rap Song and Best Male Rap Song.
