Eminem “Lucky You” Video Featuring Joyner Lucas: Watch Clones Copy Their Every Move
Eminem continues with his pedal to the metal after the surprise release of his Kamikaze album. Today (Sept. 13), he teams up with Joyner Lucas to release the video of their collab "Lucky You" from the LP.
The video finds Joyner and Em in some kind of post-apocalyptic world surrounded by hooded figures with glaring red eyes. Joyner dons a bulletproof vest as he raps his first verse from some kind of cell as he moves on to a barge that reads "LUCKY." Eventually, the two rappers link up for a bit of an interlude, where they realize that the hooded figures are just their clones.
"Wait a minute," Em says. "Are they just doing everything we're doing?" They then hit a few dance moves, including the dab and some hip thrusts that the figures immediately imitate.
Afterwards, Eminem continues the lyrics in his verse about what he believes is the downfall of hip-hop, and the criticism of his last album. "I got a couple of mansions, Still I don't have any manners/You got a couple of ghost writers, But to these kids it don't actually matter/They're askin' me, "What the fuck happened to hip-hop?", I said, "I don't have any answers."/'Cause I took an L when I dropped my last album, It hurt me like hell but I'm back on these rappers," he spits.
"Lucky You" is the second song off of Kamikaze to get the video treatment. Last week, Em shared the visual for his song "Fall," one of the more controversial cuts off his album.
All of this has ensued in the wake of his beef with Machine Gun Kelly, who responded to Em dissing him on the album with his own song "Rap Devil." Eminem touched on MGK's' diss last night in an interview that aired with Sway Calloway, saying that the rapper just needs to "shut the fuck up."
