Eminem goes back to the future in new 'Rap God' video
Slim Shady comes full circle
Eminem borrows from Max Headroom, "The Matrix" and his Slim Shady past in his new video for "Rap God." Watch it here or below.
The six-minute video also mirrors some of the lyrics from "Rap God" -- the second single off his platinum album "The Marshall Mathers LP 2
" -- but thankfully none of the homophobic slurs that recently got Em in trouble
. The technology themes fit verses such as "But for me to rap like a computer / Annotate must be in my genes / I got a laptop in my back pocket." A stack of vintage televisions flash images of the rappers Em praises in the song, including Busta Rhymes, Tupac and Run-DMC.
We won't give away the ending, but let's just say Eminem lets Kanye know that he's not the only Yeezus in the game.
