Not only is Slim Shady among the greatest battlers of all-time, but his "kind of" autobiographical film 8 Mile is all about rap battles. So it only makes sense that his latest film project is getting a good bit of Hollywood hype.

Em is a producer on the upcoming film Bodied. The movie already won an award at last year's Toronto International Film Festival and is now slated for a cinematic release on November 2. Check out the official trailer below:

The film stars Calum Worthy as grad student Adam, who becomes a competitive battle rapper while working on his graduate thesis on the subject. Anthony Michael Hall and Charlamagne tha God also star in the film, as well as real-life battle rappers Dumbfoundead, Hollow da Don, and others.
