Eminem got back to his roots on Friday with a 10-minute freestyle.
Em posted the freestyle on Twitter. The freestyle is inspired by the film he produced, BODIED. The film is a celebration of battle rap and underground culture.
“The release of BODIED has me feeling nostalgic about battle rap so I headed down to my old stomping grounds,” he tweeted. “Hit the link for 10+ minutes of it “Kick Off” (Freestyle).”

According to the visual, the visual was shot on location at The Shelter at St. Andrew’s Hall in Detroit, Slim Shady’s hometown.
“The bear you don’t want to poke is back, the backbone of rap/Your fucking lead singles are my bonus tracks/Since the day Dre gave me beats, I was made elite/That’s basically what makes me me/Creating stink till these tats are fading ink/Who’s the greatest? Think, we’re still debating. Wink,” he spits.
