Video Showdown: Eminem vs. Kanye West

Eminem vs. Kanye West

Two of music’s biggest stars, Eminem and Kanye West, delivered epic videos within hours of each other and they couldn’t be more different. Em and Rihanna set the screen on fire in the turbulent “Love the Way You Lie” clip co-starring Hollywood megastars Megan Fox and Dominic Monaghan. Kanye’s video, or rather his portrait of “POWER,” is unlike anything we’ve seen—a painting that comes to life in 90 seconds.

Now that you’ve seen both, who do you think had the more impressive visuals? Vote below!

    This poll is unfair. Kanye didn’t make a video, he made a portrait.

    That kanye video was wack all he did was stand there and the visuals did the work and it was short as hell. Eminem and Rihanna Love The Way You Lie was an actual video and it delivered.

    Kanye West took his cues from Michael Jackson’s ‘Leave Me Alone’ if anyone can remember that video.

    Still the same pretentious egotistical Kanye.

  16. Sly B.

    Based on the creativity aspects of it, Kanye did. But for an actual video, obviously Eminem. I still vote Kanye considering it was unexpected.

    Of course Kanyeezy had more impressive visuals. If only it were longer… But Rihanna was an impressive visual in “Love The Way You Lie” Video.

  26. True Blue

    Eminem, because it was an actual video, and not a 90-second commercial like Kanye’s.

    [Reply]

  27. EMINEM IT WAS A ACTUAL VIDEO

    KANYES WAS MORE OF A TV COMMERCIAL PROMOTING HIS ALBUM WITCH WOULD BE A GREAT COMMERCIAL. BUT NOT A VIDEO WOW YOU ZOOM OUT ON THE “PAINTING” (SHRUG)

    [Reply]

  28. Saad

    Both were really good, but I gotta give it to em. great video and message. But ye was absolutely sick too! both deserve credit for good videos, even if ye’s was shorter.

  33. love young weezy baby

    mr. west for sure
    ‘ltwyl’ is pretty boring to me. there’s just the same old plot…make up & break up but kanye puts an art in his video and that makes the video looks more interesting. he’s creative. i’m totally agree with him when he says it’s not a video, it’s an moving painting.

    [Reply]

  34. Brian

    Kanye, and it’s not close. Em’s video is soo standard Ye took a way bigger risk and it paid off. Watch every one start making video portraits now. It’s not like any of the TV stations play videos any more anyway….

    [Reply]

  35. Sheiv

    How many vids like Em have we seen in our lifetime, seriously?! Nothing impressive about it!
    Rihanna’s red fucking hair was the most interesting visual!

    Kanye delivers!

    [Reply]

  36. Ash3s

    people are acting like videos are suppose to be only about visuals that is all lady gaga brainwash BS! …. the video is also about the message…. what message did you get from kanye’s vid sorry i mean moving painting …?

    [Reply]

  37. ts5000

  41. buddyreal

    theres not much room for comparison in this situation..these are both diverse epic videos from epic artist..but u have to admit kayne’s power was not like anything we’ve seen before from a hip hop video stance..can u feel me?

    [Reply]

  42. Winston

    Love Em, and the video was dope, but I enjoyed Kanye’s ‘portrait’ more. It was unique and innovative. You really shouldn’t compare though, Kanye’s wasn’t a ‘video’. And to those screaming ‘Illuminati’ or ‘it had nothing to do with power’. Wow, you guys are fools. Please search up the “Sword Of Debacles” to see what Kanye was trying to emphasize here with POWER. And guys, I shouldn’t say this, but you haven’t seen it all. Oh, and those saying it was ‘short’ – Kanye is on a WHOLE different level right now, this ‘portrait’ was just one piece of the ‘Big Picture’ he has in mind. You’ll see soon enough. Kanye >>>>. The man is a genius.

  43. bam

    LOL OMG @ u all..
    Kanye’s “VIDEO” is a disaster.. totally failed.

    [Reply]

  44. Yo

    Kanye made an epic that will be remembered for a long time.

    Hell it’s only 90 seconds long and it is still better than the crap Eminem served up with his new video.

    Kanye is a genius! This man is pushing the boundaries, whilst Em is doing the same stale shit!

    of course Eminem has better video than Kanye, his videos are always the best because he is the best rapper ever

    [Reply]

  50. Duhhh

    Some of you are complete idiots. “Em fans will vote Em because they are extremely Bias. + kanye made a damn Motion painting so WTF Rap-UP” Of course em fans are bias but that goes for kanye fans too you spastic, and secondly don’t release a moving painting as a music video if you don’t want people to compare it to music videos. I considered carefully before I voted, the reason I don’t like Kanyes video is because Its completely big headed and arrogant, and I’m sorry but its not a masterpiece, my GF studied art and even she says its a joke, and just pretentious. Considering Kanye said he wanted to change and become a better person he sure is doing a great job of getting even further up his own ass. I have no doubt Good Ass job or whatever he is gonna call it will be amazing, and I’m getting it first day for sure but he needs to get a grip and realise he’s not the centre of the universe.

  51. hello?!?

    Well…. Eminem’s video is not like his usual videos either, so people can quit saying that it’s nothing new. Sorry to the kanye fans, but i dont think he’s anywhere near to being a god or a legand to be making video’s like this. And he’s not the first person to do this either, it looks alot like one of MJ’s videos called “leave me alone “. I give credit to whoever made Kanye’s video, but no to Kanye. He didn’t do shit, he just stood there for one shot….i bet it wasn’t even his idea. So I give this vote to Em, cuz he actually did something in his :/

  64. KANYE WEST = The King & the Best

    @ Duhhh:
    No one gives a fly f*** about what your girlfriend studied or how SHE thinks its a ‘joke’. Studying is just being taught about other peoples views..Kanyes video wins, hands down, not because its different, not because its ‘like nothing ever done before’, but because it expresses kanye without using big, popular celebs to prove something that we dont care about. WEST IS BEST! :)
