That nutty Eminem, what won’t he do? I have to admit I’ve always had a soft spot for the angry little fella and his music. I even saw “8 Mile” opening weekend, but that’s mostly because my life is almost the same exact story. Minus the whole rapping and shooting guns thing.
Now after almost five years away from the cover of Tiger Beat Mr. M is back up to his old tricks. This time in his new video for “3AM” which aired for the first time on Cinamax this past Saturday after the premiere of “The Strangers”. In the video Eminem plays an escaped mental patient who goes around murdering people and running shirtless in a forest. The video is directed by Syndrome, yeah one word, who has apparently also directed every Black Eyed Peas video ever made. Yeah, I hate him now too.
The song isn’t what you would call “good” but the video isn’t too shabby, sporting severed arms, blood baths and Eminem’s washboard abs. I would guess there is no way it is going to find its way onto MTV but stranger things have happened. Take a look and let us know what you guys think.
Eminem’s new album “Relapse” drops (that’s what the kids say, right?) on May 19th.
