Hip-hop heads, did you know that one of the greatest Eminem songs was recorded all in one take?

It was on the set while shooting 8 Mile where Eminem wrote the rhymes for “Lose Yourself” and according to studio engineer Steven King – “He was on a break from shooting and he laid down all three verses in one take.”

Bonus hip-hop gem – the song’s lyrics sheet appears in the movie while Eminem’s character is on the bus.
