Bad Bunny Does ‘8 Mile’ Inspired Skit On ‘SNL’
Bad Bunny became the forty-fifth artist to serve as host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live last night. During the show, Bunny did a skit based on 8 Mile, inspired by Eminem’s 2002 movie.
The skit, featured; Kenan Thompson and Mikey Day. Day’s character, Walter Whiteboy (an homage to Breaking Bad), was very obviously supposed to represent Rabbit, Eminem’s character from the original movie and featured a rap battle between Day and Bad Bunny. Bunny’s character was named, El Fuego in a rap battle.
Thompson was the host of the battle in the skit, even announced it as happening in Detroit. In the skit, Fuego was the returning champion, while Whiteboy was the nervous challenger, similar to Rabbit in 8 Mile. Before the battle, Walter Whiteboy’s crew tells him to clown himself on things Fuego would clown him on before Fuego could.
This leads to Day’s character doing a self deprecating freestyle where he clowns; his fake Jordan’s, living with his mother and step-dad, his first kiss being with his first cousin and more. Fuego, who didn’t know any of this starts to sympathize with Walter, who doesn’t realize this while putting all of his dirty laundry out there.
At the end of the battle, Fuego doesn’t say anything but still wins the battle after Walter Whiteboy puts all his business out in the street and his crew dips out on him, you can check out the Bad Bunny 8 Mile rap battle skit below:
