Rapper returns to home town with acclaimed director
Eminem has teamed up with director Spike Lee on the music video for new single ‘Headlights.’
Lee and Eminem worked together on the video in Detroit with the rapper tweeting, “Spike came out to The D for the ‘Headlights’ video…Coming soon,” and sharing a picture of them together on Instagram (see below).
Meanwhile, Oldboy and Malcolm X director Lee also confirmed his involvement in the project when he tweeted: “Detroit’s Finest Eminem And Me Working Together On His Short a Film. Historic. Who Woulda Thunk It”
‘Headlights’ is the latest single to be lifted from the rapper’s 2013 album ‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2’ and sees Eminem apologising to his mother, Debbie, for things which have happened in their past.
Eminem recently revealed he came close to writing a rap in which he attacked Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Drake. The Detroit rapper opened up about how other musicians “killing it” between his ‘Encore’ and ‘Relapse’ albums made him feel insecure about himself and his own music.
