Happy 46th birthday to Mekhi Phifer!

Who can forget Phifer in “8 Mile,” alongside the one and only Eminem? What a great film. It’s hard to believe that show is almost 20 years old. It’s one of my all-time favorite movies! Brittany Murphy, rest in peace, was also fantastic in it.

Here are some of our favorite Phifer “8 Mile” clips in honor of his big day!
