Well that didn't take long. Earlier today we were hit with a 21 second preview. Hours later we're hit with the official video to Eminem's Recovery single. I also included live recordings of Em's performance on BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge as a bonus below.

BONUS: Eminem - Stan x Forever (Live) | Not Afraid (Live)

    This video is fucking amazing! Eminem killing the game right now.

    Y'all better BELIEVE the hype is real faggets.

  • http://myspace.com/pitri_27 PITRI

    The music video is pretty fuckin DOPE!!! the story and metaphors in it are Amazing!! i like the whole concept..

  • dopeSir

    wtf? cant get wit dis. tryna sing n shit. w.e. dudes one of the greatest so i guess this is a hit?

  • who cares

    Video is fuckin great man. Only complaint is audio is synced rite wit da video, but it's still a great vid. Em doin' his thing

  • Unxpektad

    I watched this video, then I remembered this is why I say Asher Roth is garbage lol

  • elizabeth

    Dayum he's soooo hot!! Love this track But the Won't Back Down track w/ pink that leaked is BEASTLY, like Despicable on Steroids, with a 3/4 waltz beat!! Brilliant! Em is THE shit!

  • AlexkingCloud

    lol i had a feeling he was gonna fly on this

  • Martin

    FUCKING DOPE!

  • elizabeth

    I loved the superhero parallel! Totally Em!! I'm glad he's always true to himself and doesn't shy away from exposing he is.

  • Bolverk

    This is DOPE! even the flying was nice in my opinion anyway.

  • elizabeth

    @dopeSir there's def NO singing on the track that leaked yesterday. The jam is about wordplay, and he spits an abundance of verbal gymnastics like we've never seen from him before, from start to finish! Only pink is singing the hook. It's insane how he comes with that shyt!

  • http://twitter.com/jameskancho -_-┻WTF

    Neo in Nike yep!

    great video

  • bobbybouvea

    hey guys, why do people have 91 in email addresses, what does it mean ?

  • D.A.

    when did B Rabbit turn into Nathan Petrelli??

  • mmkayy

    lol its only corny if u thinkin "oh shit Em flyin now".. its a damn metaphor fools

  • F’IN TARDS

    "when did B Rabbit turn into Nathan Petrelli??"

    Please don't make that reference, it only reminds of something that once was great and went and imploded, and became something I no longer cared for.

    With that said, I like the blond haired looked more. He just seems so normal with dark (normal) hair.

    And I believe it was Peter who fell off the building. But it was so long ago, I'm not really sure.

  • rufUS tAckle da eScapist

  • RappishWayz

    Aite now I feel dumb..metaphor for Katrina?How so?

  • RG

    The Video outshines the actual song which is mediocre, also the flying thing is unnecesary.

  • WOWSIMPLYWOW

    Is it jus me or people listened to so MUCH jcole drake and young money that they forgot what REAL MUSIC is supposed to sound like ????

  • Coroner

    That is what I call a Music Video!!! Great Work!!

  • http://myspace.com/ancientworksmusic Pocket Science

    this video was a spin off of Heores tv show!
    so...he's actually more like Peter not Neo!
    great concept boy they made it happen!

  • ChrisPoi187

    Dope!!!

  • mmkayy

    the flyin isnt a metaphor 4 katrina lol.. Its about Em bein at the top of hiphop/life again hence landin on the top of the buildin

  • mmkayy

    ^same place where he thought of jumpin in thd beginning of the video

  • Gromerto

    Interesting, Eminem finally has a decent wardrobe, except for the sneakers....but about the video, the production of it is crazy, everything is done nicely, but the flying part was just horrible, i mean c'mon couldn't the storyboard boys figure out something less cheesy at that part, plus they would have saved some money in the special effects.

  • Jenson

    Looks a bit lika a brighter & much more uplifting Version of "The Way I am" - From falling down to rising up again...nice one!

  • Kes Wiseman
  • Boomerang Slang

    Fork was in the road, I took the psychopath

    Recovery is sounded nice so far

  • Gordon B.

    "When did Eminem become Neo ?"
    My guess it's about him realizing what his place is in the game and started believing in him self, comparing that to when Neo realized his place that's when he "learned to fly".

  • Dan

    Why you all acting so surprised? Eminem's superman, didn't you know?

  • Bill Clinton

    dope.just dope.

  • http://www.twitter.com/whiteoutgotu whiteoutgotu

    lol. how is the flying part NOT dope? and for anyone that says he's "biting" Heroes or whatever...have you ever considered that he might watch the show and he did that on purpose? have you ever seen a rap music video? most good videos are based on movies/shows

    ehhh song (great message, great chorus, sub-par [for 2010 eminem] verses, TERRIBLE beat), GREAT video

    Super-Em FTW

  • shay

  • DopeBoy

    The metaphor concept of falling off the edge then coming back is (2)dope.

  • eSo

    Great video until he started flying. thought that was kinda cheesy. Whatever. still love this song. June 22nd will be a great day.

  • james

    this is horrible. so cheesy. such a rip off of the matrix. it's not even a metaphor. it's ass.

  • M&M

    ^^ LMAO

  • BCK

    Honestly, with the industry strictly treating us like matadors (feeding us bullshit) I can't quite put my finger on the meaning. I just loved the suspense (I thought he was gonna jump in the beginning) and the unpredictability of the vid. Nobody SAW that coming! Not even James Wan. But I still noticed references to 2012, apparently he's still possessed (maybe he actually meant "ExErcise these demons"). Indeed he's on top, it's HIS spot, he doesn't want us there, notice that when he says "I'll get you there" he points to where his been (trials and turmoils). He must be amazing indeed to be king, and and at the same time be the subject (of our "conversations").

  • http://www.2dopeboyz.com/2010/05/20/drake-thank-me-later-tracklist/ Marcus

    What the Fuck is wrong with u fagot ass haters
    talking all this shit about " oh let me guess 1000000 comments from stans" go kill urself if u have nothing good to say honestly
    its pretty sad now

    if you got nothing good to say, just dont comment honestly
    You dont like it? then DONT LISTEN and let Eminem do his thing

    aside from that this video is fuckin dope i loved it, Superman is in the building i just wish he had better features on his album like some Nas, or Jay none of that wayne stuff but oh well

  • Andrew

    i heard royce 5'9 was gonna make a cameo in this vid., did i miss it?

  • JohnTiger

  • PhoneHome

    Dope video!!!! think the songs a lil corny but video is crazy! big budget shit!

  • BCK

    Actually I just rewatched it and I realized: It's actually a very clever concept that deals with everyday life. Look around you! You see the world that you living in? Its not the world that you living in! I know... Before, he was just "living" his life, but more like a drone not knowing where or how or why (cf: Hailie's song) That's why he crosses the streets blindly, because he's not aware of what's going on around him, he's "like a boy in a bubble" (cf: Say goodbye to hollywood). But as soon as breaks free, from the *gulp* matrix, he realeyes what the world really is (Dead) for the first time. He faces the consequences of OUR mistakes as human beings and... embraces it. He faces death/destruction (kinda like Yeshua) because he knows that it's only through mistakes that we grow. He... resurrects! (kinda like Yeshua) He even ascends into the heavens (kinda like Yeshua) back to where he came from in the first place. To put it simply, the message he's tryna convey is that: "we deserve to have the world dropped on our heads because it seems that it's the only way we'll ever wake up and realeyes what's essential and what mathers" Like him, afterwards we'll know redemption and get our wings back. *Record scratches* Talk about mindfuck! No! We don't need to kill half the planet to wake up! We don't need a savior, a messiah to hold our hands! Regardless of his background wether he from Jerusalem or good old Michigan! On the contrary WE NEED TO TAKE RESPONSABILITY! We need to be saviors and messiahs, we need to STOP BEING SHEEP and TO START BEING SHEPHERDS. And when there won't be a single sheep left, then I guess there won't be any wolves left either... That's how you get rid of evil... Get rid of ignorance. To conclude half the message is good, the other half... *scoff* Call it cognitive dissonance.

  • YOU CAN HATE ME NOW

    BRUTAL BUT HONEST AND IT'S MY PERSONAL POINT OF VIEW (HATE OR LOVE I DON'T CARE REALLY),

    THIS SONG IS AVERAGE AND THE VIDEO TOO. I DON'T REALLY UNDERSTAND THE CHOICE OF THIS BEAT. NOTHING SPECIAL ON THIS BEAT (808 AGAIN AND AGAIN) SOUND LIKE A AMATEUR PRODUCER.

    DAAAAM HE GOT MR PORTER, KHALIL, DR DRE AND HIM. WHY HE CHOOSE THIS AVERAGE BEAT.

    THE SONG WITH PINK IS NOT REALLY GOOD TOO I DON'T BEAT OF KHALIL. I LOVE EM BUT WHEN IT'S NOT GOOD IT'S NOT GOOD !
    EM IS NOT INSPIRED ON THIS 2 TRACK.

  • YOU CAN HATE ME NOW

    AND THE SINGLE OF BIG BOI IS 100 TIMES BETTER (FLOW BEAT AND ORIGINALITY)

    YOU CAN HATE ME NOW OR LATER BUT IT'S TRUE

  • http://NYC zany blunts

    cool vid no doubt... i still gotta beef with the beat as some of you do too... its the drums the most... a travis barker remix wouldnt hurt

  • WorldCrysis

    I was molested to this song yersterday by my daddy. I hate to think what he wil do to me when he finds out video came out.

  • http://www.soultravelinmusic.blogspot.com SOULTRAVELINMUSIC

    Tell your daddy your not afraid lol

    nice viddy

  • French kiss

    Who love this beat (and the hook) ? If yes why ? I want a real opinion not a Die hard fan point of view.

    When i Heard DOA from Jay z, "grow up" or "hallelujah" from bishop or "slangin rocks" from the game All this track as dope beats to me it's impossible if you know the level of eminem to say shit is dope my word.

    I got all albums of em (not download) and i got the right to say is mediocre (vidéo not original too pop)

    big up to em, i love this Guy but i can't say it's good because it's em.

  • FRESHman10

    I have been an advent listener of Em since he first came out, with the "Slim Shady LP". I feel throughout Em's career he has let everybody into his life and inner demons; for his courage to do so I amend him. As a fan of his music, I feel that I know him on a more personal sense after experiencing the sound he reveals throughout all his music...

  • bpizz

    oh shit! em can fly too
