The rapper's music is center stage in a new video supporting Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden that dropped on Monday morning (Nov. 2), set to the tune of his classic pump-up anthem "Lose Yourself."
Tweeting, "One opportunity...#Vote," Marshall threw his hat into the ring to back the former two-term vice president and senator in a dramatic 45-second black-and-white video that mixes images of young parents, skaters, people waiting in line to vote and athletes going hard.
"Look/ If you had/ One shot/ Or one opportunity/ To seize everything you ever wanted/ In one moment/ Would you capture it/ Or just let it slip?" Em raps at the top of the iconic 2002 anthem from his Oscar-winning film 8 Mile, a track that has become one of the go-to soundtracks for overcoming any challenge in the years since. In this case, the aim is to turn out the vote for Biden during Tuesday's (Nov. 3) election in a historic campaign that currently has the former veep leading Trump by 8 points nationally, as well as by large double-digit margins among Black voters, seniors, women and independents, and holding on to leads in key swing states Arizona, Florida, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
