It's being reported that Eminem will be working with Dr. Dre on tracks for his battle rap film, Bodied. Directed by Joseph Kahn, the movie was premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last week.
The movie is a satirical look at battle rapping. Bodied was written by Toronto battle rapper Alex Larsen (aka Kid Twist) and produced by Eminem.
“In battle rap, people would say the meanest, craziest, most racist things, and then they would get a beer together, and they would be friends. I wanted to explore that in a movie,” said Kahn about his film (via The Hollywood Reporter).
According to THR, Eminem will contribute a number of songs to the soundtrack and Dr. Dre is also adding a couple of tunes as well. There’s no word on when the film will arrive in theaters.
Mr. Mathers is reportedly also working on his ninth studio album and is rumored to may also have a new song with Pink on her new album, Beautiful Trama, which arrives on Oct. 13.
