Eminem has released an animated music video for his new track “Tone Deaf”, and you can check it out below.
Taken from the deluxe edition of the superstar rapper’s latest album, Music To Be Murdered By — Side B, the Luis Resto and Eminem-produced track hears him take aim at cancel culture while putting his controversial past on full display.
On the track’s chorus, Eminem raps: “I can’t understand a word you say (I’m tone-deaf)/ I think this way I prefer to stay (I’m tone-deaf)/ I won’t stop even when my hair turns grey (I’m tone-deaf)/ ‘Cause they won’t stop until they cancel me.”
In the Randy Chriz-directed “Tone Deaf” clip, a cartoon Eminem embarks on a crazy journey that includes a high-speed police chase.
The new track arrives after a TikTok campaign was started earlier this week calling for Eminem’s cancellation after lyrics from his 2010 single with Rihanna “Love the Way You Lie” resurfaced.
Elsewhere in Eminem news, Conway The Machine has hinted that a collaboration with Eminem and The Alchemist is on the way. The Griselda rapper said he was “just here for the comments” when he was asked why he had retweeted the rumour from his own account. No official confirmation of a collaboration has been given.
