Yeah! Fuck the Free World!” ~MC Bob

Cheddar Bob now known as M.C Bob is Jimmy's "dumb friend"[1] and a member of Jimmy's gang known as "313", They are involved in a street war with a rival gang known as "Tha Free World", Cheddar Bob is portrayed as rather dimwitted, but makes up for this by his loyalty, Cheddar was played by Evan Jones.

Appearance in 8 Mile[]

He is often seen with his friends while smoking weed. After the gang is encouraged to destroy an old abandoned house because a little girl was raped there, and it might happen again, Cheddar, despite his friends telling him not to, sets the house on fire, unaware that Jimmy is still upstairs, but Jimmy manages to escape the building unharmed.

He is seen again, when Jimmy and his gang attack Tha Free World for talking smack, and during the commotion, Bob reveals to have a gun (due to the fact earlier he saw Papa Doc holding one), frightening everyone. He is ordered to put his gun away before he kills someone. As he tucks it into his pants, he shoots himself in the upper leg, and is rushed to the hospital, where he slowly recovered.

When the others go to check on him the next day, he pretends to be sleeping, but Jimmy notices and confronts him. Bob admits he didn't want them to make fun of him. Jimmy understands, and calls him "MC Bob", because during the ride to the hospital, Bob no longer wanted to be called "Cheddar Bob". Bob is okay after the incident, but is seen on crutches. When Jimmy is battling Papa Doc, he brings up this incident.
