AceShowbiz – Eminem gets in a lot of trouble in a new music video for “Godzilla”. Released on Monday, March 9, the promo for the latest track from his “Music to Be Murdered By” album presents the “Lose Yourself” hitmaker getting high and being on the recipient end of Mike Tyson‘s punch.
The four-and-a half-minute video kicks off with the 47-year-old grabbing a bottle of whiskey in a supermarket while rapping, “I can swallow a bottle of alcohol and I’ll feel like Godzilla.” He soon finds himself hallucinating about being followed by human-size Godzillas, meeting various kinds of his clones and vomiting Lego bricks.
At one point, the promo directed by Lyrical Lemonade’s Cole Bennett sees Rihanna‘s collaborator for “Love the Way You Lie” getting mistakenly knocked down by Tyson. When he wakes up in a hospital, his longtime collaborator Dr. Dre shows up in blue scrubs and white coat appearing ready to treat him.
The video wraps up with a tribute for Eminem’s late collaborator Juice WRLD. Along with a monochrome clip of the “Lucid Dreams” rapper and a promise that he will never be forgotten, an audio of him speaking could be heard in the background.
“I hope everybody havin’ a good day. I hope everybody accomplished something significant. Even if you didn’t accomplish anything significant, don’t be discouraged,” said the 21-year-old who died of an accidental drug overdose in early December 2019 after suffering a seizure and going into cardiac arrest at Chicago, Illinois’ Midway Airport.
“Just aim to accomplish something significant tomorrow and the next day and so on,” the Illinois rapper continued. ” If anybody is going through anything, I hope and I pray that you get through it. And just know that you do have the strength to get through whatever the f**k you going through, no matter what it is.”
