Eminem Is Releasing Spike Lee’s Directed “Headlights” Video On Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day is just around the corner and Eminem has something lined up for all you lovely nurturers. He announced on his Instagram that he will be releasing his Spike Lee directed video entitled “Headlights” on Mother’s Day (May 11th)
The song was on Eminem’s last album The Marshall Mathers LP 2. On the track, Em candidly apologized to his mother and let her off the hook after years of persecuting her on the mic through his songs.
“I’m sorry mama for ‘Cleaning Out My Closet,’ at the time I was angry,” Eminem raps on the track. “Rightfully maybe so, never meant that far to take it though, ’cause / Now I know it’s not your fault, and I’m not making jokes / That song I no longer play at shows and I cringe every time it’s on the radio.
Last month, Em revealed that Spike Lee was taking charge in directing the video. This should be a nice gift to Mama Shady.
