Did 8 Mile with Eminem rip off Purple rain???

Recommended Posts

Casey rains a huge Prince fan who does the channel The Violet Realty, Said he grew up in the 90s and 00s hip hop era, He was excited for 8 Mile, but one review stuck out to him and still stands out to him. 


To this generation it might be the film that defines them but for some of Us. 


We already had an 8 Mile, for our generation That's none other than 1984's Purple Rain, which Casey says Rock and Roll movie's are nothing new But Purple Rain flipped it upside down and Reinvented the entire film. 

It's definitely left a legacy in minnesota especially the Music scene and put the first avenue night club just as iconic as Several new York Music themed club's from that era. 


I watched both film's more of a fan of purple Rain. But I never connected just how similar both premises are actually very similar.
