MOVIE 9. 3 0PM, S BS VI C E L AND Ken­drick La­mar’s Puli­tizer prize win for his con­tri­bu­tion to hip-hop mu­sic, via his in­cred­i­ble al­bum Damn, has had me think­ing about the greats of this genre, and rap more broadly, who per­haps de­served sim­i­lar ac­knowl­edge­ment for their work. Without doubt, Eminem (right) played a sig­nif­i­cant role in tak­ing this mu­sic main­stream; and in this semi-bi­o­graph­i­cal film, how he over­came des­per­ate poverty to break into a largely AfricanAmer­i­can in­dus­try cir­cle is worth re­vis­it­ing.
