Eminem relives his ‘Without Me’ video in the promo for his new track ‘Houdini‘.

The 51-year-old rapper is returning with his first new album in four years – The Death of Slim Shady (Coup De Grâce)‘ – and he released the lead single on Friday, May 31 with the video which sees him relive moments from his classic 2002 promo alongside guest stars Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Pete Davidson.

Eminem even goes back to his trademark bleach blonde hair which he was known for in the early days of his career.

The hip-hop star previously shared news of his new album as he appeared at the 2024 NFL Draft in his hometown, Detroit, on April 25.

He appeared with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell as they kicked off the Annual Player Selection Meeting and a trailer circulated of a fake reporter announcing the death of Eminem’s alter ego Slim Shady.

“Through his complex and often-criticized, tongue-twisting rhymes, the blonde anti-hero known as Slim Shady has had no shortage of enemies,” they said.

“He’s not a friend, he’s a psychopath,” his rap peer 50 Cent said.

“The same rude lyrics and controversial antics may have ultimately led to his demise. Join me as we recreate the events that led to the murder of Slim Shady,” the reporter continued.

Eminem – whose last album was 2020’s Music to Be Murdered By – shared the clip on Instagram along with the album’s title and summer 2024 release window.

“Let me explain something to you right now. Eminem is working on his own album which is coming out this year and I actually talked to him and he said it was OK for me to make that announcement right here on this show.

“I’ve got songs on it and it’s fire. I’m actually going to hear the entire album for the first time tomorrow,” Dr. Dre said.

“He holds his music close to his chest, so I haven’t heard everything. I haven’t even heard everything completely that I’ve done, but I’m gonna hear it,” Dr. Dre said speaking on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
