Marshall Mathers likes to share albums without notice, and repeating his 2018 move with Kamikaze , Eminem dropped his latest record, Music To Be Murdered By, on Friday morning. The Michigan rapper’s 20-track album hosts a bevy of artists with looks from Ed Sheeran, Black Thought, Q-Tip , Juice WRLD, White Gold, Anderson .Paak , Don Toliver, Joell Ortiz , Skylar Grey , KXNG Crooked, Young M.A, and Royce Da 5’9″.
Along with Music To Be Murdered By ‘s release comes a music video for the project’s lead single “Darkness.” The visual, like the track itself, shows a solo Eminem as he battles his demons. The revered emcee is shown alone in a dimly light blue space or wandering around a drug and alcohol-filled hotel room.
The controversial clip soon is revealed to be Em’s artistic take on the 2017 Las Vegas shooting when a man named Stephen Paddock opened fire from a Mandalay Bay Hotel room onto concertgoers below. He killed 58 people and injured over 400 others before turning a gun on himself. The music video ends with Eminem standing in front of multiple television screens, watching various reports of shootings across America .
“When will this end? When enough people care,” is written before a message to register to vote is shown.
