Watch Mike Tyson and Dr. Dre In Eminem’s ‘Godzilla’ Video
The trippy new video also features a tribute to late rapper Juice Wrld.
The new video for Eminem’s “fast rap” chart-topper “Godzilla” features cameo appearances from longtime collaborator Dr. Dre and legendary ex-heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson.
The Cole Bennett-directed clip begins with Em in a warehouse, where he imbibes “Godzilla” whiskey and encounters some surreal hallucinations. Eminem is depicted blasting a bandit with a rocket-propelled grenade, vomiting Legos, literally spitting fire, and ascending a stack of his old CDs before Tyson knocks him out. Then we see Em in a hospital bed, where he’s tended to by Dr. Dre and Tyson.
A final sequence celebrates late rapper Juice Wrld, who guested on “Godzilla” before he tragically died of drug-induced seizure last December.
“I hope everybody is having a good day. I hope everybody accomplish something significant,” World narrates over black and white video of himself. “Even if you didn’t accomplish significant, don’t be discouraged. Just aim to something accomplish something significant tomorrow, and the next day, and so on.”
“If anyone is going through anything, I hope and pray that you get through it,” he adds. “And just know that you have the strength to get through whatever the fuck you’re going through, no matter what it is.”
“Godzilla” proved to be a breakout-hit off the surprise release of Eminem’s 11th studio album Music to be Murdered By. The track’s tongue-twisting third verse set the record for the rap genre’s fastest ever and even spawned a #Godzillachallenge, in which fans were called to deliver a cover without fumbling over its 10.65-words per-second pace.
Meanwhile, the “Godzilla” music video has racked up nearly 10.5 million views in less than 24 hours.
