Eminem - Rap God video
Eminem - Rap God video

Eminem's latest single is as angry as you'd expect from the rapper, but the music video is decidedly sci-fi. The six-minute-clip, created for the single "Rap God," features a range of visual influences — Eminem raps while channeling Max Headroom, for instance, and even hops through portals as if he was playing a real-life version of Valve's video game series. And the lyrics are just as nerdy, with lines like "I just bought a new ray gun from the future just to shoot you." Check it out below.
