Spike Lee Directs Eminem In New Music Video 'Headlights"

The Detroit rapper hands out the olive branch to his mum, but still sounds as furious as ever

Eminem dropped the video for his latest single “Headlights” yesterday, as a tribute to his mum – just in time for Mothers Day across the pond.

Featuring Nate Ruess of the pop trio Fun, the song and video aim to make amends with the rapper's matriarch, who he has been criticising in his rhymes since "My Name Is" in 1999.

Directed by Spike Lee, the video is partly shot from the point of view of his mother, and also features various photos of a young Marshall Mathers.

“Headlights” also contains references to his previous singles “Without Me”, “Cleaning Out My Closet” as well as  “My Name Is”. 

The start of a long lasting reconciliation or a savvy publicity stunt? Either way, it's a return to form for the man who dominated the charts throughout the 00s.
