A pair of Academy Award nominees have teamed up for rapper Eminem's next video.
On Saturday night, April 5, the Detroit rapper sent out an Instagram photo of himself and director Spike Lee, both sporting dark hoodies and standing in front of the SUV, wtih the caption, "Spike came out to The D for the 'Headlights' video...Coming soon." The message did not explicitly say that Lee directed the clip, but that's certainly the implication.
Shooting took place in Rochester on Saturday, with Mayor Jeffrey Cuthbertson reportedly visiting the set.
"Headlights," which features Nate Ruess from the pop band fun., is the fourth official single from "The Marshall Mathers LP 2," which came out Nov. 5. The other three -- "Berzerk," "Rap God" and "The Monster" -- were Top 10 hits, with the latter topping the Billboard 100.
Lee has been nominated for two Academy Awards, while Eminem won the Oscar for Best Original Song in 2003 for "Lose Yourself" from his feature film debut (and so far only movie role) "8 Mile."
Tickets are currently on sale for Eminem's The Monster Tour with Rihanna, which stops Aug. 22-23 at Detroit's Comerica Park.
