Obama gets his 8 Mile on in preparation for his big moment.
After Birdman's infamous standoff with the Breakfast Club, it was revealed that the Cash Money mogul was getting pumped up for the iconic confrontation to Eminem's "Lose Yourself." The song is forever associated with the scene in 8 Mile where Eminem prepares for a big rap battle, and apparently it's iconic enough for the president of the United States to replicate it.
A new clip, which features footage from Obama's DNC speech reveals that he jokingly head-bobbed to the Eminem track right before going on stage at the convention, listening to the track off of a colleague's phone. He ended up killing his speech, so hopefully he gave Eminem a call afterward to thank him for the inspiration.
