What We Know About Eminem’s Forthcoming Video For “Rap God”

eminem 10

Judging from the reception of the singles and the hype surrounding the project, Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2 seems like it is going to be yet another commercial success for the Detroit MC. After recently dropping the project’s fourth single “Monster” featuring Rihanna, Em shot the video for the LP’s much-talked about third offering, “Rap God” which follows eye-catching videos for “Berzerk” and “Survival.” “I’m always imagining shooting video; visualizing the picture,” Shady recently said in an interview with The Detroit Free Press. “What everything could, should look like. I’m always thinking about music videos and ideas, concepts. I do that for almost all of my songs.”

With the “Rap God” visual on deck, here’s some of the details about the video we know so far.

- One scene for the video was filmed at the Russell Industrial Center complex just north of downtown Detroit.

- The film crew made use of an empty warehouse.

- “Rap God” is directed by Rich Lee. He has previously been at the helm for the Em videos “Not Afraid” and “Lighters.”

- The visual was shot over a two-day period.

- Em filmed the entire six-minute song one take at a time. Re-filming the entire tongue-twisting track straight through for each take.

- No fancy or outlandish threads in this one. Em keeps it simple rocking all black with a pair of white, black and blue Nike Air Max.
