Eminem drops inspirational visual for “Higher”
The clip was first premiered during UFC 257.
Back in December, Eminem dropped off Music to Be Murdered By: Side B, a deluxe continuation of his eleventh studio album Music to Be Murdered By. The newer upgrade contained 16 new cuts and additional appearances from DJ Premier, Ty Dolla $ign, Dr. Dre, Skylar Grey, and more. Looking to keep the momentum going, Eminem drops off a new visual from Side B for “Higher,” a self-produced offering that sees the Detroit legend reflecting on his successful career:
“I look at me now, I’m thinkin’, ‘damn,’ how proud of me I am, what I did is nothin’ to sneeze at, even if your allergies are bad, I’m up in a balcony in France, I look around, I see the fans, how they surround me in the stands/
Probably could drown in a sea of hands, they’re hollerin’, ‘Shady,’ yelling it out to me…/”
The black-and-white video shows Slim Shady borrowing from LL Cool J’s classic “Mama Said Knock You Out,” rapping his lines from a microphone hanging over a boxing ring. As “Higher” was premiered via Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier’s recent match, various shots of UFC fighters can be seen in both the Octagon and in the gym – a symbol for anyone that’s dedicated to remain at the top of their respective crafts. The clip also shows Eminem in both a UFC-styled press conference and in a hot-headed mock interview on ESPN, with Dana White making a cameo.
Music to Be Murdered By was released in January of last year and saw 20 cuts with a slew of assists from the likes of Young M.A, Royce da 5’9”, Ed Sheeran, Juice WRLD, Q-Tip, Black Thought, Anderson .Paak, Don Toliver, and Slaughterhouse (sans Joe Budden). The album also landed Eminem his tenth number one album thanks to an impressive 279,000 album units sold during its first week of release.
