LeBron James shows massive love to Eminem’s new song



Eminem / LeBron James

Eminem has just gave us the first taste of his upcoming 12th solo studio album “The Death of Slim Shady (Coup De Grâce),” dropping somewhere this summer, with the release of its first single, titled “Houdini.” The new single got fans excited, including celebrities like Big Sean and LeBron James.

The song begins with a classic Eminem trope, enlisting his longtime manager Paul Rosenberg to share his distaste of the album that’s to come. “Hey Em, it’s Paul. I was listening to the album… Good f–king luck, you’re on your own,” says Rosenberg.

“Houdini” is somewhat of a callback to his 2002 single “Without Me,” beginning with the singsong rhymes, “Guess who’s back, back again / Shady’s back, tell a friend.” The song, produced by Eminem and his longtime collaborator Luis Resto, cites Steve Miller Band’s “Abracadabra” on the chorus, and references Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez shooting incident on one of the lines. “If I was to ask for Megan Thee Stallion if she would collab with me / Would I really have a shot at a feat? I don’t know, but I’m glad to be, back,” he raps.

The music video for the song is a direct homage to “Without Me,” as Eminem steps into a portal back to the year when the song came out. The clip, shot in a comic strip style like the video for “Without Me,” features guest appearances from 50 Cent, Pete Davidson, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, GRIP, Westside Boogie, Ez Mil, Royce 5’9″, Denaun Porter and Alchemist, among many others, and sees two Eminems — one from 2002 and another from the current day — rapping along to “Houdini.”

LeBron James is the latest celebrity who showed love to Slim Shady’s new single. “And just like that, HE’S BACK bruh! @eminem Houdini is too good!” Check the tweet from NBA legend below:
