Video: Eminem – ‘Rap God’

Eminem

Eminem unlocks the key to immortality in the futuristic video for his single “Rap God.” The hip-hop icon rocks blonde hair and a shiny black suit as he pays homage to ’80s British artificial intelligence Max Headroom. He sits in a white room hooked up to televisions, while images of his rap idols Rakim, Eazy-E, and Run-D.M.C. flash across the monitors.

The glitchy clip was shot at the Russell Industrial Center in Detroit and directed by Rich Lee, who helmed the “Not Afraid” and “Lighters” videos.

Following “Berzerk” and “Survival,” the song is the third visual off The Marshall Mathers LP 2, which returns to No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The album sold 120,000 copies in its third week.

He also recently shot a video for “The Monster” with Rihanna in Detroit.

Eminem Performs ‘Stan’ for BBC Radio 1

Eminem

Eminem brought the nostalgia when he performed “Stan” for BBC Radio 1. Backed by a band, the blond rapper worked up a sweat while delivering the 2000 classic off his pivotal album The Marshall Mathers LP. He reflected on recording the MMLP2 sequel “Bad Guy” during his interview with Zane Lowe.

“I had heard a lot of chatter right around the time of doing the Recovery record that I should do ‘Stan 2,’” he said. “All I kept thinking was, well Stan’s dead. He died in the story. So in the back of my mind, I kinda had an idea of like who could be left from the story, but I needed to get the right beat.”

He also sat down for the fourth part of his interview with Lowe, where he discussed touring and the future.

“I don’t know what the plan is in the near future, but I do know there’s gonna be some other things coming up, other projects and things like that I’ll probably get into working on,” he said. “Whatever point I decide I’m gonna put the mic down, or whatever happens with that, I do feel like I always want something to do with the music, whether it’s producing or whatever ends up happening.”

Check out the performance and interview below.
