Eminem gives fans a taste of new music in ‘Southpaw’ trailer – watch

Rapper was originally pegged to star in film before being replaced by Jake Gyllenhaal

Eminem has previewed new music in the trailer for new boxing film Southpaw.

The trailer, which you can watch below, features a previously unheard track by the artist in which he can be heard rapping “Forgive me now“.

Tweeting a link to the trailer, Eminem wrote: “Sneak peek of some new stuff I’ve been working on in the @SouthPawMovie trailer. World premiere!”

Originally Eminem was attached to star in the film when it was announced in December 2010 but later postponed the project and eventually dropped out entirely. He was replaced by Nightcrawler actor Jake Gyllenhaal.

Eminem has spent the past few months in a retrospective mood, most recently starring alongside, Dr Dre and 50 Cent in a feature-length documentary on the Shady Records label.

This follows the 2014 release of ‘Shady XV’, an album marking the 15th anniversary of Eminem’s Shady Records imprint. The label is currently home to Eminem, D12, Slaughterhouse, Yelawolf and Bad Meets Evil. It was also the label 50 Cent signed to prior to his rise to fame.

Southpaw would have seen Eminem return the big screen for the first time in over a decade. His only previous movie role came in 2002’s semi-autobiographical 8 Mile.
