"Rap Name" is the debut single of American rapper Obie Trice, released as a limited edition vinyl recording, taken from the deluxe edition of the soundtrack to the film 8 Mile.

Production

The song was produced and features additional vocals from fellow-label mate Eminem, who sampled the track in two tracks for his album The Eminem Show, released earlier in 2002. These tracks are "Drips" and the intro of the album's lead single, "Without Me". The song also features vocal samples of the line "Moby, you can get stomped by Obie" from Eminem's single "Without Me" and The Notorious B.I.G. from his song "Long Kiss Goodnight" from the album Life After Death.

Music video

The official video was filmed in Detroit with featured cameo appearances by Eminem's group D12.
