Eminem’s record label lip-synced Joe Biden with 8 Mile‘s protagonist B-Rabbit in this hilarious rap battle.
“Biden Rabbit? VOTE!” reads the caption paired with the Instagram post. Urging their US audiences to vote, Shady Records envision Joe Biden voiced over by The Slim Shady, hollering: “Now everybody from the 313 / Put your motherfucking hands up and follow me.”

The meme features one of the final scenes from 8 Mile, the 2002 film loosely based upon Eminem’s turbulent path to fame. Eminem played B-Rabbit in the film, winning an Oscar for Best Original Song for Lose Yourself, which featured on its soundtrack.
Kind of think @JoeBiden needs to watch 8 Mile and see how Eminem’s B- Rabbit disarmed and schooled Papa Doc in the final rap battle.

The 8 Mile scene envisions B-Rabbit versing Papa Doc in an underground rap battle, with the meme eluding to the upcoming battle between Donald Trump and Joe Biden in the US presidential election occuring on November 3.
Joe Biden takes on Trump in a lip sync battle for the masses, with Shady Records comparing the Republican leader to the Big Bad Wolf: “This Free World’s got you gassed up / Now, who’s afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?”
What a way to ruin one of my favorite parts of that movie. 🤦🏾♂️ Damn, I love Eminem but his Trump Derangement Syndrom is getting the best of him. 😑 This was hilariously stupid. 😆https://t.co/YkUEJAE4Vd
