Squeezed out a little time to finally watch 8 Mile, a movie so old that at least 2 of the cast have passed away. Anyway in that movie, there’s is this character called Future, who basically is the encourager of the main character, Rabbit (Eminem). Future frequently, much to Rabbit’s annoyance, sign Rabbit up for many rap battles because he believed in Rabbit’s talent.
I’ve read that ‘Future’ is a character molded after Proof, a real rapper and Eminem’s best friend who died from gun wounds in 2006. This is a song Eminem wrote for Proof. NSFW.
