Eminem unveils video for controversial 'Rap God' track - watch Eminem Tickets

The promo sees the rapper channeling '80s TV character Max Headroom

Eminem has unveiled the video for 'Rap God', the latest track to be taken from his new album 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2'.

The video for the controversial song sees Eminem channeling '80s TV character Max Headroom. The 'Rap God' video is directed by Rich Lee, who previously worked on Eminem's 'Not Afraid' and 'Lighters' videos and was shot at the Russell Industrial Centre in Detroit.

'Rap God' is third track from 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2' to get a video after 'Berzerk' and 'Survival'. Fans will not have to wait long for the fourth, however, with Rihanna recently sharing an image from the set of their video for 'The Monster' via her Facebook page.

Yesterday it was reported that Eminem's childhood home was demolished after being deemed unsafe following a fire earlier this month. The home, which features on the cover of Eminem's new album, 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2', as well as its 2000 prequel, was owned by the Detroit rapper's mother between 1989 and 2003. On November 7 the property caught fire and was demolished last week (November 20) after officials at Michigan Land Bank, who own the property and land it sat on deemed the building "structurally unsafe".

MLive, a local Michigan paper, reports that crews started tearing down the home last week and are expected to be finished with debris removal at the lot by the end of this month. "The condition of the property post-fire presents a safety hazard that the Land Bank is responsible for removing," Michigan Land Bank director Kim Homan said in a statement. "The goal is to demolish and clean up the site, so neighborhood safety and order can be restored."

Prior to destruction, Eminem's teenage home went on sale at auction. A fan from Tennessee called Shelly Hazlett had submitted a $100 bid for the property and said she would turn the house into an Eminem museum if her offer was approved by the state. The house - one of many abandoned houses in the neighborhood - had a starting bid of $1. State officials tried to reach out to Eminem to see if he wanted to bid on the property, but didn't receive interest.
