Eminem runs from the specter of his critics in video for Justin Vernon-featuring “Fall”: Watch

Bon Iver's frontman had said he was going to "kill this track," but Em has other plans


Eminem’s “Fall” Video

    Last week, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon expressed his displeasure with being a part of Eminem’s new song “Fall”. The Kamikaze track takes aim at a number of the Detroit rapper’s critics and contemporaries, including a line where he uses the term “f*ggot” in reference to openly bisexual rapper Tyler, the Creator. After tweeting that he was “not a fan of the message” and that “it is certainly not the time for slurs,” Vernon sent a message saying, “I was wrong and we are gonna kill this track.”

    However, “Fall” appears very much alive, as Em has today shared its accompanying visuals. The James Larese-directed music video finds the MC literally running from the specter of his critics, personified by a smoke monster that rises from the depths of social media backlash. As the clip ends, a very changed Eminem takes a heavy step on a CD of his much-maligned 2017 effort Revival.
