Jake Gyllenhaal boxing film is in cinemas now
The soundtrack to new film Southpaw, which boasts Eminem as its executive producer, is streaming online.
There are two Eminem songs on the album, the Gwen Stefani-featuring ‘Kings Never Die’, and ‘Phenomenal’. The album is also packed with affiliates of the Detroit rapper, including 50 Cent, Bad Meets Evil and Slaughterhouse.
Elsewhere on the hip-hop heavy soundtrack there are contributions from The Weeknd, Busta Rhymes, Action Bronson, Joey Bada$$, The Notorious B.I.G. and more. Stream the 14-track LP below.
Eminem was originally set to star Southpaw when it was announced in December 2010, but later postponed the project and eventually dropped out entirely. He was replaced by Jake Gyllenhaal, who plays the lead role opposite Rachel McAdams.
Rita Ora has a small role as a dishevelled drug addict and prostitute in the forthcoming boxing drama, in which Gyllenhaal stars as a retired fighter who launches a comeback following the death of his wife. The film’s impressive cast also includes Forest Whitaker, Naomie Harris and Curtis ‘50 Cent’ Jackson.
The influential group disbanded in 1991, with new biopic movie Straight Outta Compton set to be released next month.
Ahead of the film’s release, there’s been much speculation over whether NWA would reform for live performances, with rumours earlier this week of Eminem possibly standing in for deceased member Eazy-E.
However, representatives for both the Detroit rapper and Dr Dre have since denied the rumours.
