Rabbit Run

Eminem

This song was off the soundtrack to the movie 8 Mile and essentially is a veiled parallel between the lives of the main character, Jimmy Smith (a.k.a. “Rabbit”), and Eminem.

The name alludes to John Updike’s classic novel Rabbit, Run. In fact the screenplay for 8 Mile with begins a quote from Rabbit, Run: “If you have the guts to be yourself…other people’ll pay your price.” Real F'n Talk

On the Straight From The Lab mixtape, this song was named “Explosion”.
